Revert Site

  • Here you can post comments about Revert Site extension, created by st333v

  • Works like a charm!!

  • It stopped working since 10/20/2020.

  • Just wanted to thank Revert and FBP for all their help in allowing me to regain access to the 'old' FB via Opera. They provide a 5* free service and deserve a 5* reference.

  • so I thought it was wrong, but I checked on opera and chrome and it is the same on both. when launching games, they do something that allows the original UI to be visible.

  • @rocksteadyfreddie facebook closed the loophole this extension was using to get the old design back., so it no longer works.

    You should still be able to switch back if you are a Page or Group admin, just login to your page or group, and there should be a button at the top left letting you switch back to the old design for 48 hours. If you are not an admin, it should be possible to create a "shell" page or group just for the option, in theory.

  • @st333v: I did create a group (just to use to revert back) but it does not give me that option and it is set up now in the new layout. It was worth a try though.

  • @cretanjohn: Thanks John, Opera have just approved the latest Revert Site update, give it a try, but there are a couple of issues you need to know about with the new version. A side effect of the revert option is the chat sidebar on the right won't be available. Though you can still use the messages dropdown in the top navigation bar to send and receive messages. You can also use the auxiliary facebook messaging website: messenger.com to check online friends, and chat etc.

    Another issue is sometimes you may find yourself switched the mobile version of the site, but you can reset it back to the desktop version by typing in www.facebook.com in the address bar, or clicking www.facebook.com

  • @st333v Thanks I did try it and right now it is working anyway. We will see for how long. But thanks for getting back to me so quickly. I appreciate all your hard working on this issues.

  • @st333v Thanks for the update but I can't get it to work. Do I actually have to do anything in Opera to update the extension. If so, what, because I cannot find anywhere to change anything!

  • @st333v Sorry but I think there is a misunderstanding here. I read your earlier post about the new Opera approval and it was that to which I was referring. You appear to have replied on the assumption that I have not read it> please respond to the query I raised.
    thanks for all your help here.

  • @cretanjohn sorry, yes, this forum is very confusing indeed, have never seen anything like it. sorry for any confusion. theres probably a button on the opera extensions management page to update your extensions. if not you may need to turn the developer mode switch on first, then it should appear.

  • @st333v That's done it. Thanks.

  • As of 11/13/20, not working on any of my browsers. Love it when it is working though. I detest the newest version. Lol, us old folks like it to stay simple. Thank you for all your effort on this.

  • @hawksflight1: @hawksflight1: try the latest Revert Site update v9, it should work much better now. It now has 2 revert modes, the default one should get the full old site design back including the Newsfeed. If mode 1 doesnt work, you can use the fall back mode, but its not as feature complete as mode 1, mode 2 cant revert the newsfeed, instead facebook redirects you to the mobile version of the newsfeed page.

  • @st333v Thanks. I'll try it. How do I fine the update?

  • I have always used FBP and love it. I hate the new version of Facebook as it is Horrible with my page an rearranging images. It is utterly useless now!!! Please fix FBP to correct this facebook ignorance asap! I tried your fixer app, both modes 1 and 2 and they refresh my page but still both in ugly FB land trapped forever!

  • @st333v Thank you so much for your fast answer. I use Opera, firefox and chrome, all three are being brats right now with this. My messenger posts are back to the old style so that's good. No worries, I don't know code or how to do programming, so I'll wait patiently and as soon as I can, I'll send a few bucks on the donation page. I appreciate your good work very much. Have a great weekend and stay safe and healthy.
