To have Footer Widget just within the posts
I realise I’m not able to have Infinite Scroll on the Homepage if I have any Footer Widget. Is it possible to have the Footer Widget just within the posts, and not on the Homepage? Thanks
The blog I need help with is ediecampbell-fans.com.
Hi there – it is indeed possible to do this.
You can see a tutorial here on how to set widget visibility settings – https://dailypost.wordpress.com/2013/05/28/widget-visibility/

I had already tried setting the Widget Visibility, and the Infinite Scroll still doesn’t work.
My Widget Visibility setting was
Also tried setting with
Either way, the Infinite Scroll doesn’t work, I still need to click on “Older posts” at the bottom of the Home page to load more posts.
I have try this setting too
“All taxonomy pages”
Infinite Scroll only works when I didn’t have any Footer Widget.
Oh – ok, sorry about that. I was under the impression that would work. I shall ask the wordpress.com support team for more help (I made the theme but don’t know every detail about wordpress.com). Hopefully they will be able to help.
I confirmed that if you have Infinite Scroll enabled, with a footer widget set to be hidden on the Front Page (with the site set to show posts on the home page), Infinite Scroll is disabled.
I’m fairly certain this is a bug. I’ll report it to the appropriate team. Unfortunately, I don’t know of any workaround for this issue.
Is there a fix for this yet?
I really like the Infinite Scroll feature, but that means I can’t have any footer widget in the Post pages.
Is there any custom CSS that I can add, to make it work like a widget? For eg, a “back to home” button at the bottom of Post pages, after the Comments section and above the WordPress footer credit.
I can’t answer regarding the bug since that’s a wordpress.com issue, hopefully they will get back to you soon.
However, regarding adding content via css – I’m afraid that’s not possible. CSS only allows you to change how things look – there’s no way to add interactivity with CSS unfortunately. This means we can’t add things that click with CSS.
Sorry about that :(
