New front page

Help! I have chosen the "stay on old page" option but when I just signed in I got the new front page. I went to the pulldown option under my name and it said "switch to new front page", implying I was on the old version. There was no option to switch back to the old version. Can I switch back? Or am I now being forced to use the new version? I've never complained at any of the prior changes, but I just can't use the new style. I understand this is a business decision and Kos is committed to the new design and I don't intend to argue against it. But isn't there some option for long-time users like me to be able to opt out and use the old version? If not, there should be. Please help me.

    Good morning, and thanks for your question.

    I think there is probably a way to get your dropdown to display the link that you would need, but in the short term there is an even simpler step to take.

    Go to this URL: https://www.dailykos.com/softlaunch/set_default and the Front Page should load from that point forward. If you clear your cookies and get bumped to the new page again, re-visiting that page should set you on the old view.

    Thanks for asking. I don't want to suggest that the adjustment is easy or welcome to everyone; we know that it will take some time. We're also building in new features to make the new version easier to navigate in multiple senses of the word. We're grateful for your support.
