Can you please go back to the old format lay out?
I know Im just one person....But, I hate the new layout, so hard to find normal articles I normally always read.Agggggg
Thank you for your feedback. I’m sorry to hear you aren’t enjoying the new layout, which increased the number of stories featured on the home page.
One goal was to make it easier for readers to find a more diverse range of stories, as we’d received complaints that some of our topics were hard to find, and – by adding a nav bar and labels at the top of every story – we are hoping it will now be easier to navigate to your preferred topics or to scan for them on the home page.
We appreciate your input and will pass it – along with all of the comments here – to our design team as we continue to evolve our site. Thanks again!
I used to always turn to HuffPost first to get updates on breaking news because it got right to the point without a lot of click bait advertising and abbreviated articles requiring readers to click to continue reading an article after less than a paragraph, much like the Fox News website. Now, I depend on old standbys like CNN to get the truth about what is going on in the world. Please, please go back to your previous format of reporting the news without promoting click bait & without requiring readers to immediately click to continue reading every single story! I hate the new click to continue format! A formerly dedicated & now concerned reader.
Working in the design industry I'm all for evolution and new ways to approach something, but with that said, I'm also all for having a logical reason behind each decision. This new layout is a UI/UX nightmare with no rhyme or reason to anything as far as I can see. It is immensely overwhelming. By and large it's like a thousand stories are just thrown up onto the page in slightly varying section layouts that don't really work with each other, and are all muddled together. Your featured hero sections at the top are now filled with fluff pieces and the most relevant articles to what's going on this world and country are immediately buried scattershot amongst cooking articles, kloe kardashian and tons of filler on a mile long page. Long story short, the most important stuff is not easy to find nor is it gathered with similar content. Also the structuring of any of these sections is not logical nor is it easy for a viewer to scan through. Lastly, I saw a bunch of people mention the autoplay video features. Please... get rid of them or at least make them easier to close, especially on mobile. It's absolute madness that leads to tons of accidental click throughs and false analytics for you and your sponsors.
