Homepage changes

I am getting annoyed by all these new "fixes" to the layout on this site. I really wish it would go back to the 2 column layout with featured on one side and popular on the other. Look so much cleaner and nicer.

I don't have time to use Instructables like before if this layout stays (and I will not extend my membership). I always use the browse function to look for new instructables. If I have to do that separately for every category, it just isn't worth the bother. I generally dislike layout changes, but when _functions_ disappear, it's much worse... Contents over layout, every time!

You don't. You can put the global "RECENT" browser into the Shortcuts tab in your profile. Or, you can bookmark the direct URL.

Hello! Thank you for this tip! I finally figured out how to do it... (Couldn't find the setting you mentioned). I'm very glad this was possible! Have a great day! Best regards, tome

I like the old layout much better too. An "All" link on the homepage would be nice for those of us that just like to browse.

Thanks for the quick turn-around on the vertical separation of the category and the Cards! Looks like it shifted the background image out from under the Home-Item-Control divs, though. Nitpick nitpick. So much time and so little to do :) Verdict: new layout still great.
I really love the new layout. Way better than the previous one, and perhaps even than the one before that. <3
I'm with you. The new layout is an order of magnitude better than the previous one. My only quibble is that the main section takes up a little more vertical space than seems necessary, but that's just my personal aesthetic. If there were a way to give thumbs on this site, this would be a big thumbs-up.

Actually, I was just getting used to the new one with one column.
So was I, but then I just logged on, and thought not again... :)
Well now I kind of see the point. Before, a max of 10-15 instructables got front page featured each day. You used to be able to get front page featured, channel featured, and category featured. Now, I think front page and channel featured are the same thing, so they will be able to get more 'ibles filtering through the front page then ever before.
