Mostly I'm ok with the new LJ feed. I'm not keen on the wasted space on the right of the screen on my friends page, but I'm told in the next update that will disappear if you close all the options.

One thing that really bugs me though, is that now if you leave a comment on someone's post and then use the back button in your browser to get back to your flist (the way I always have), it takes you back to the top of that page. If the post you just commented on happens to be close to the bottom, you have to scroll for ages to find your place again. It annoys me to have to do that, because that was one of the things LJ did really well, and that other sites have failed at - helping you keep your place.

Hey LJ, your place-finding sucks as much as Facebook now. Well done!

Of course I might be missing something, so if you know how to stop this from happening I'm all ears.

This is when I'm very grateful to be a paid member with a custom friends feed! I still have my old friends page in my own journal style, which the latest changes haven't affected. The new version sounds annoying.

I'm a paid member but I accidentally clicked 'try the new look' one day, and there's no option to go back.

I admit I haven't tried customising it. I'm a bit short of things to say lately so I haven't been giving LJ the attention I normally would tbh.

I open things in different tabs on the browser and go through them that way...

I'm never a fan of the feeds. I'll stick with my standard friends page.

There should be a spot where you can click to switch back. I have a post on it here:

I also think, but I'm not sure, that you can still chose the "show friends in my own style" option in the settings.

That is one of my biggest annoyances too. Actually, this is why I have started using the app on my phone more frequently for LJ reading - this isn't an issue.

I have it set up to show it the old way, I managed to make it go back and truthfully I don't remember how I did it.
