Please keep the old front page available

The new front page might be popular with some, but it is a step backwards to me. The reason I visit the page multiple times a day (And support Daily Kos financially) is being able to read a few paragraphs of every story - even if I don't read the rest of a particular story I get exposed to things I wouldn't otherwise.

    Hi, edgallant

    Thanks for your feedback about the new Front Page design.

    If you're interested in more context, please consult this reference explaining the rationale behind the change.

    If you're here for more immediate concerns, the most common question arising now is how to switch between old and new displays. Some site users, even regular ones, may not have been in the smallish percentage of users now redirected to the new display. Others may want to take a little longer to become acclimated to it.

    Switching between displays is easy.

    Logged-in users can switch between versions by clicking a link displayed at the bottom of the user drop-down menu, “Switch to old/new frontpage design.” Anonymous users can use these links to switch:
    To reach the old FP display, go to
    To reach the new FP display, go to

    Once you've had a chance to use the new display for a while, you're welcome to let us know what you think about it. We’ve opened a dedicated category here at the Helpdesk for new Front Page questions and commentary. To help us better understand your feedback, please provide details about the type of device you’re using, its operating system and browser, along with as much specific information you can supply about your question or issue. Screenshots, which Helpdesk will allow you to attach, can be of significant help in illustrating your points.
