Why did Zillow change the layout? Can I get the old format back?

I liked the old version much better.  Are there ways to change the layout for each user?

Well, can you be specific on WHICH "old format" since this thread is YEARS old!?

Some of the formats are still available with careful setting of certain cookies.  I'm using "an" old format of the "forum".  Home details page format has changed 3 times in the past 2 months and is now back to something more similar to what it was most of last year.  Search format had some issues, and has been revised several times in the past 12 months; adding a "list only" format where the map does not show.  One just clicks to get map + list, or list only.  There was some defect in the prior search map implementation, but one could get the old one with the setting of a cookie.  It now appears with the new "list" format available that that cookie no longer does anything.

Anyway, if we don't know what you "miss" and why you miss it, complaining about it doesn't do any good.  You need to be specific.  And if you are specific, there may be some work-arounds, such as setting a Zillow cookie.

And you would have been much better off starting your own thread rather than digging one up that is more than 3 YEARS old.

"There is a "sticky" thread at the top of the "other" category, "

Could you please tell me where this 'other' category can be found.

No, you cannot get the old format back; but Zillow did post they were interested in feedback for tweaks to the new format.  There is a "sticky" thread at the top of the "other" category, so post to that thread with your specifics so that the programmers will know what users liked about the old format that is no longer there.
