Each time I view a different WordPress.com blog I have to scroll to the bottom and disable it. I can’t be the only person in the world who finds this iPad “optimised” theme completely unusable. I’d like to opt out of seeing it. May 12, 2011 at 12:11 am #611321 airodysseyMember Hi. Go to Appearance > iPad to disable the iPad theme for your blog. May 12, 2011 at 12:14 am #611323 thesacredpathStaff If you are talking about on blogs other than your own, no, if the blog owner has it activated then you will have to scroll to the bottom to turn it off.

May 21, 2011 at 5:34 am #611623 thesacredpathStaff If you go to a site with the iPad theme active, there should be a link down near the bottom where you can switch to the standard theme and I believe that is remembered by wordrpress through the use of a cookie.

At some point it will eclipse professional and college sports. May 23, 2011 at 1:47 am #611633 membracidMember Hey, some us have already gone pro as complainers with our blogs ;p May 24, 2011 at 4:17 pm #611635 creativegoddessMember Personally, I think it’s kinda cool. I guess that is until this ‘feature’ becomes a bug. ;) May 24, 2011 at 5:55 pm #611636 sonnieharrisMember I like it too. It’s easier to get an overall view of the blog in one hit; instead of scrolling and scrolling… Plus, it looks great for image rich blogs.
