new format for pages ? Answered

What is going on with the new format for the different pages?  All I can find is featured "ibles" with large pictures, wheres the zeitgist, recent, popular etc that used to be on the main page of each section (ride,outdoors,offbeat,green,life,etc etc?) Am I overlooking something? Is it just MY computer?

You can go to the explore page that has all of the sorting options we offer. You'll also find all the categories on the left hand side to narrow your viewing.

We are in the process of rolling out some new designs and formatting, so thanks for posting your feedback/question.

 Thank you for the reply but it didn't really address the question/problem. Previously each section (outdoors,ride,life etc) were broken down on their first/opening page into featured, popular, zeitgest, recent, this made it easy to find NEW posts to each section or find the popular posts for green, family or whichever subsection your interested in at the moment.

Although there are links to  featured, popular, recent, etc under the explore section it doesn't break them down as to section. In my opinion (for what its worth) the featured section gets stale with not enough new stuff added and older posts recycled through, this isn't really a problem but its the new posts that keep the site active, if they aren;t easily found then there will be no new featured or popular in the near future because no one can find the new posts to vote on them, shortly after that the posters of the new "ibles" will stop posting and in that direction lies the graveyard of the WWW. I can only hope this gets remedied quickly as instructables has quickly become my favorite online pasttime.
