Stupid new interface broke my filters and by the time I realized they were gone, the "go back" option was no longer available.

Anybody know how I can go back at least to get my filters?

Hating this week so hard...

I do not. But now I'm worried my filters might be broken. Can you say what broke?

Re: Erk

They just went away. Like, the names for them were still there, but in "Manage Custom Friends Groups," when I clicked on each name, the place were the list of people on that filter wasn't populated with any names.

And on my "Filter Friends Page" when I clicked on each filter group, I just got my full friends list.

Anyway, followed the directions below & got them back & rather painstakingly copied typed them into a file so if I lose them again & want to recreate them exactly, I can.

Re: Erk

Jeebus I can't even FIND my friends groups in the current UI. Ah, wait it's under "Feed". OK, I checked and my groups are there with the members I expect them to have. I'm sorry it bugged out and caused you grief.

Thanks. I don't think so. It's all "I'm 44 & haven't done anything with my life" junk.

My filters broke when I got the "upgrade" AKA the new interface. But they didn't get messed up, they just vanished such that no matter what I clicked on, I just got my full friend feed.

Hi; I found this entry via my friends-of-friends list. I hope you don't mind my dropping in.

http://fengi.livejournal.com/1504674.html has useful pictures showing how to get your friends page back.

This does in fact work. When I looked today to turn off the oh my god so much whitespace my eyes are bleeding look, the question mark in a balloon was there.
