How to Change Back to the Previous Facebook Photo Layout

by Ross McKillop on February 17, 2011

This very brief tutorial/tip will show you how to revert to the previous version of the Facebook Photo layout.

  1. I said it was brief – just remove the &theatre string from the end of the URL when viewing a picture.
  2. new Facebook photo layout

  3. Once again, you’ll be presented with the ‘old’ photo interface, with the Previous, Next and other navigation links where they used to be.

  5. Yep, that’s it!

    mocca – worked for me too (in Chrome, haven’t tested it in others). I had to Shift+Refresh though, it pulled the cached version with just a normal ‘Refresh’.

    cwscms – awesome trick! I could only get it to work in Firefox – not in Chrome or Safari (all on OS X, will try Windows later).

    Thanks!!
