    The Jetpack plugin does not add any credits to your site’s footer. This credit is added by your theme, and you should be able to remove it by editing your theme’s footer.php file.

    If you want to remove the links to the Mobile WordPress applications that are added to the Jetpack Mobile theme, you can do so by going to the Jetpack menu in your dashboard, and then clicking on “Configure” in the Mobile Theme menu.

    Hmm, we are not talking about the same thing, then.
    Please take a look at this screenshot:

    This bar at the boom is added by jetpack. If I enable the infinite scrolling this bar is there. If I disable this module this bar disappears.

    If I added in the footer the footer => 'false' the bar doesn’t disappear…

    My bad, I didn’t know you were talking about Infinite Scroll.

    The credits are coming from your theme, and you can indeed remove them with the footer => 'false' parameter. I had a look at your site, and it seems you have managed to remove it.

    the .pl site is the production site, and the module is disabled, also because in order to enable infinite scrolling I need to create several .php files and recall the piece of code from the loop. (pity that there isn’t any way (as far as I know) to make it work without editing the theme files. Functions.php is ok, but ‘all’ the files (tag, category, page, etc) is a little painful πŸ™

    And the second reason why I didn’t enable it is that I’d like to have my real theme footer to be visible even if the infinite scrolling is ON. New posts push the footer-bottom down. I’d like to have the new appearing posts to load up in the top, and if a user is reading the footer content/widgets, they should be able to keep reading them. If not forever, at least for few seconds…

    You can check the test site
    You can see it there. Even though I have the following code in the functions.php, the infinite footer doesn’t disappear:

    add_theme_support( 'infinite-scroll', array(
        'container'    => 'middle_single',
        'footer'       => 'false', ) );

    @utnalove. I am facing the same challenge on the mobile view of my site. You can take a look at it using mobile device here:

    Please, while exactly in my WordPress installation do I enter the code footer=>’false’ to remove the attribution text? Function.php of my theme or where… Again, won’t removing the attribution text also remove the “full site” text and link located at the footer?


    Hi @silvaniblog, it looks like you have the infinite-scroll module disabled or you didn’t set it right, because the infinite scroll is not working on your site.

    I suggest you to post a new question, also because even though the issue is very similar it’s not the same.

    We’ll now wait for the Author’s help.

    @utnalove You’ll want to remove the ' around the false value, otherwise Infinite Scroll will look for <div id="false"></div> in your theme, instead of actually disabling the footer.

    add_theme_support( 'infinite-scroll', array(
        'container'    => 'middle_single',
        'footer'       => false ) );

    @silvaniblog IS doesn’t seem to be enabled on your site. You can find detailed instructions to help you add support for Infinite Scroll here:

    @jeremy, thank you sooooooooooooooo much!! That was it. It now works fine.

    I’d like to create a new support post, but before doing that I’d like to ask you here whether it’s possible. Please take a look at my test site

    Please try to read everything that there is in the footer-bottom. You cannot, because new posts loaded will push the footer down. The only simple solution would be to enable the “click” to load new posts, but I’d like to avoid that. People are lazy to click.

    Do you know if there is a solution (or there’s sth in the roadmap) that will allow people reading the footer to continue reading it without having it being pushed down by new posts?

    if the browser scrollbar is 100% on the bottom, then stop loading new posts.
    if a user is reading the footer, then have new posts load at the top, still keeping the same view in the browser window (the window will become bigger, the scroll bar will become smaller, but people reading the footer will still be able to finish interacting with it).

    What do you think? Is it something feasible now with some tuning or maybe in the future via the settings? There are a lot of sites with widgets in the footer and still need the infinite scrolling enabled, especially to lower the bounce rate.

    I had a look at your site, and people indeed have time to start reading your footer while the new posts load.

    If you do not want to use the Click to Load option, I am afraid there is no real solution; Infinite Scroll was created to allow your readers to keep reading more and more posts as they scroll down the page. If you want them to read the footer instead, you have to use the Click to Load option.

    Well they have time in that site. The production site loads the posts much more fast.

    Well I am sure that from a technical standpoint there would be a solution. Eg. to have a counter that says “in 10,9,8…seconds new posts will be loaded” Or this kind of stuff.
    I hope this can be considered a feature request πŸ™‚

    By the way, I want to thank you for your help πŸ™‚ Have a nice day.

    Alright, thanks pals, I appreciate your quick response.

    Yes, I didn’t enable infinite scroll cos my theme (Genesis framework) did not support it and I wouldn’t want to modify anything for now.

    Nevertheless, I enabled the mobile view feature of the Jetpack. What I’m now asking is how I can remove the text attribute that’s written “Proudly powered by WordPress” located at the footer area of my site when viewing it from a mobile device.

    Try going to Appearance > Edit CSS in your dashboard, and add the following Custom CSS:

    #colophon #site-generator {

    Click the checkbox to “Apply this CSS to the Mobile Theme”, save your changes, and you should be good to go.

    add_filter( 'infinite_scroll_credit', 'your_footer_text' );
    function your_footer_text() {
    return '<a href="http://link_to_site">Credit Link</a>';

    Alright, thanks @jeremy, it now works though I went through the cpanel and edited the milevan.

    I appreciate your support.

    @kardiweb thanks though, I’m not talking of infinite scroll. But I have gotten what I want, anyway
