I have grown an aversion to Google AMP. Playing with the new template I saw that when it was made available here on the WordPress.com platform I’ve enabled it.
Since I manage my blog/website in the ‘old school’ way I could not find anywhere over the Dashboard a setting to disable it. A quick search on the official support forum gave me the answer, simply point your browser to:
https:// wordpress.com/settings/traffic/ $YOURSITE.wordpress.com
…and you’ll be propted with the new WordPress.com interface (still under development) and the option to enable/disable this AMP technology…
