    Thank you Bertus! I hate to say it, but I couldn't stand the new format. Much more difficult to navigate, lots of clutter, no organization. I'm glad there was an option to go back to the old format!

    In the new style, even the link given by jrap to the style chooser is unhighlighted and difficult to find. In the new format, on my device, no menu item exists for account setting changes so the link is the only way to get back.

    To change from the 'new' style to the 'legacy' style:

    1) Hover over your avatar (near the left end of the bar at the top of the page) -- A drop-down menu will appear
    2) Click on 'User Panel'
    4) Click On 'Preferences'
    5) On the 'resulting' page, scroll down and click on 'preferences'
    6) Select style 'vB 3.x - Fluid'
    7) Click 'Save changes'

    Hope this helps:)

    Best regards

    That's all well and good if it can be accomplished. Ever try hovering on a smart phone? I managed to actuate the invisible link in jraps post so I'm already there.

    What a horrible layout. What the F... is that supposed to accomplish? Change for change sake? Leave it alone...

    Please don't misunderstand my intent -- I was merely attempting to assist with navigation of the new style, no contradiction nor proselytizing intended:cool:

    I will wager all those present users (me included) will switch back to the old more readable format.
    It looks like another 'If it is Right, we can always change it' :rolleyes:

    I know, and your prescribed actions would be perfectly helpful…on a computer, but not on a mobile device.
