This site is not user friendly anymore. Is there anyway to get the old way to search? Not enjoying this site anymore at all.
Easiest way to find your past, "Questions"; "Comments"; and, "Ideas", is to go to your "Profile".
ie. the "Avatar", in the TOP 'right-hand-corner', of the "Community.FamilySearch" Forum.
▬ Initially, select that
▬ Then. on the 'Drop Down' Menus, select the bigger version of that
▬ That brings up your "Profile", with ALL your, "Discussions"; and, "Comments".
You can find you past ones there, by selecting either of those.
Welcome to the "Community.FamilySearch" Forum.
I am just another 'lowly' User/Patron ...
You are not alone ...
Short Answer: 'No', unfortunately not - looks like we are stuck with this NEW one.
As an aside ...
And, just in case you, were not aware ...
Here are some recent previous post in the Forum, from an "Official 'FamilySearch' Repräsentative". of the Team, in 'FamilySearch', that 'Designed'; and, 'Developed" the NEW look "Search":
I just thought ...
You may like to ADD, your thoughts/comments, in those particular posts; so that, your thoughts/comments, like those of MANY other UNHAPPY Users/Patrons, ARE 'seen', by the Team, in 'FamilySearch', that 'Designed'; and, 'Developed" the NEW look "Search".
I hope that this may help.
Thank you so much. I did leave a comment on one of those but can't even find it now. Really wish they'd give us the option to use the original interface that worked well and let the others have this mess if they want it. Not even worth trying to use it now. Heading back to ancestry.
Agree with above. New layout is NOT user friendly. I'll be moving my tree elsewhere. At lease give the option to go back to the old format.
Please please please revert back to the old layout and search function. I used to use this site almost daily but it's become such a convoluted mess to try and find records, that I now rarely visit the site. I also had put links in my public family tree on ancestry (weblinks to Family Search records giving full credit in the 'name' of the link) that now won't open.
I can't even find records that I have found in the past.
I'm hoping that all of the negative feedback will have an impact and that we could at least the option of using the old format. It was much more user friendly before the changes. Thank you.
[ As I somewhat previously suggest to, the original poster, 'camp_she', in this post, of theirs ... ]
Here are some FOUR (x4) posts, in date (and, post) order of being posted, from someone, stating, to be part of the 'FamilySearch' Team that, 'Designed'; and, 'Developed", the the NEW "Results" page/screen, for "Search Records", which appears, in some of the posts, to give some "Instruction", on HOW to use the NEW "Results" page/screen, for "Search Records".

I hope, that some of the information in these posts, may offer some help/assistance.
There are OTHER posts throughout this Forum, where the instigator of the above posts has responded with, advice; direction; instruction; help/assistance, on the NEW "Results" page/screen, of "Records Search" ('FamilySearch').
That Said ...
As you can 'see' from those posts ...
DESPITE, all the NEGATIVE 'Feedback', with regard to the NEW "Results" page/screen, for "Search Records", from those that matter, the 'lowly' User/Patrons, where the NEW "Results" page/screen, for "Search Records", was 'foisted' upon them; BEFORE, being "Fully" released to ALL User/Patrons - 'FamilySearch' RELEASED the NEW "Results" page/screen, for "Search Records", to ALL Users/Patrons.
As I already suggested ...
We are ALL "Struggling"; and, NEED "Help", with the NEW "Results" page/screen, for "Search Records", which is NOT very 'User Friendly'.
MOST Users/Patrons want the NEW "Results" page/screen, for "Search Records" to be "Reverted" BACK to the PREVIOUS "Results" page/screen, for "Search Records".
SADLY, I doubt that will happen ...
I know that this DOES NOT help/assist; but, I hope that this gives you some. insight; and, perspective.
PLEASE change back to the old format. The new one makes it impossible to search for and find ancestors!!!!😡
