Revert Site v9.2 now also lets you revert the Facebook Newsfeed to the old Facebook layout / design!
Revert Site v9.2 now has 2 “switch back” modes, Mode 1 and Mode 2. Mode 1 attempts to do a full facebook account switch, which will revert the whole Facebook site back to the old design, including the Newsfeed. Mode 1 is the default mode that is enabled when Revert Site is first installed. Unfortunately, Mode 1 is not compatible with everybody’s facebook account, so it won’t work for everyone.
When Revert Site is first run, it will twice attempt to load Facebook in Mode 1, and if it fails both times, it will automatically switch you to Mode 2, the fall back Revert Method. Mode 2 is the same Revert method used in the previous version (v8) of Revert Site, and has a few drawbacks and limitations. The main one being it can’t Revert the Newsfeed Page, so when you visit the Newsfeed page Facebook redirects you to the mobile version of the Newsfeed. To make it a bit easier to navigate I have managed to add a sidebar to the mobile newsfeed, so it looks a bit more like the old desktop newsfeed. On the bright side Mode 2 can revert nearly every other page on the site, including Personal Profiles, Business Pages, Events, Messages, etc.
If you are an admin of a facebook Group or Page, and have been using the built in facebook admin option to switch back, and also have Revert Site installed, make sure you switch Revert Site to Mode 1, as if you have it set to “Off” Revert Site will attempt to switch you back to the new facebook design. The good thing for Page/Group admins who use Revert Site and have it set to Mode 1, Revert Site will automatically reset your admin switch, and revert you back to the old facebook design, whenever facebook deciedes your 24 hours or 48 hours is up and tries to switch you back to the new design.
The benefit of using Revert Site for FB Purity users is that FB Purity works a great deal better on the old Facebook layout, as that was the site style that FBP was originally designed to work on. Also if you can only get Mode 2 to work, FBP can benefit by making links in the mobile newsfeed go to the old desktop version of the site.
