    is infinite scrolling possible rather than using the “Older posts” button?

    The blog I need help with is crinaprida.wordpress.com

    Hi Crina, Infinite Scroll isn’t an option on a site when there are footer widgets active, otherwise you’d never reach the bottom of the page in order to see the widgets. :) The only way to activate Infinite Scroll here would be to remove the footer widgets.

    oh, right! Talk about stupid questions haha
    Ok, so if I remove the widgets, infinite scroll will be automatically on? Or is there a way to set the number of posts to higher than 9? I hope this question makes more sense than the other one. Thank you :)

    It should be!

    Or is there a way to set the number of posts to higher than 9?

    Go to My Sites > Settings > Writing

    Change the number at “Blog posts Display 9 per page” to a higher number.

    Let us know how it goes!

    Does this work if I want to increase the number of blog posts on the homepage – I have my homepage set to show my latest posts. I changed from 9 to 15 and only 9 are displaying on the homepage.
    Thanks.

    Hi mycookexpert – this is a very old thread but I happened to stumble on your reply. :)

    I double-checked and Photo Blog actually has a maximum number of posts per page of 9. To override that you’d need to add a custom PHP function – there’s an example here:

    How to Override Jetpack Infinite Scroll Settings in a Child Theme

    You could add the function either in a child theme or a functionality plugin.

    Just a heads-up that since your site has a Business plan, you’re entitled to live-chat and email support, accessible here:

    https://wordpress.com/help/contact

    You’re welcome to still post in these forums, but those other support avenues may be faster, and you’ll always get a staff reply. (And starting a new thread is better than adding to an old one that’s already been marked as resolved.) Thanks!
