How to get the old IMDB-layout back

Recently the look and layout of IMDB has been changed, which might look great on some devices, but on a normal webbrowser it take a bit more time to find the stuff you are looking for. The links on the left side have been removed, so you now have to search a bit to find those memorable quotes for example. Luckily IMDB knows that some people do not like change and there is a way to restore the old look.

Make sure that you are logged in and click on your account (which can be found in the top right corner):

In the next screen, select site preferences

Select the first option, so that the checkbox is marked and press Ok!

That’s it. When you now navigate to a movie page you’ll see the old layout again.

  1. Oh thank God for that, I was going mad after ten minutes. I didn’t find the new layout improved in any way whatsoever. Still, kudos to IMDb to let us switch to the old layout at all, most sites can’t be bothered.

  2. Why do they always have to screw things up? Why can’t well enough ever be left alone? Thanks for letting us know how to fix what they broke.

    • Are you talking about IMDB or this blog? If you are running Firefox I suggest installing Adblock Plus as add-on. It basically filters out all the ads. Have had it for years and I almost never see any advertisements….
