I get a message that says "The page you are looking for does not exist" when I try to use the "Switch to old front page" link. I find the new design awful and prefer the compact, easy to navigate version rather than the sprawling mess. Will this be fixed?

    Yea, I'm been w/o power for a week and come back to, uh, nothing? Put what worked back or at least allow us to choose how we receive the news.

    I HATE the new format, let us switch to the old format. Whenwill Daily Kos get the message that most of their supporters hate it as well!

    Thanks for weighing in on the new front Page design.

    You still have the choice of using the old format.
    dailykos.com/blogs/main is still a legal route. We haven't done anything with it.

    In addition, you can still choose to set the old front page as your default for www.dailykos.com using either the pulldown in the upper right or the links given in the knowledge base article. This preference is set with a cookie so (a) you can/must set it on every device you use and (b) it will become unset if you clear your cookies. Re-set it again and you're good to go.
