Ensure Reddit always loads the old design
Dislike Reddit's redesign? Old Reddit Redirect will ensure that you always load the old (old.reddit.com) design instead. Forces all reddit.com links to old.reddit.com, including navigating to the site, opening links or using old bookmarks. Unlike the account setting for turning off the design, this works regardless of whether you are logged in or not or in incognito mode. Old Reddit Redirect is free and open source software. The code is available at https://github.com/tom-james-watson/old-reddit-redirect. Pull requests are more than welcome.
- (2019-12-19) Madars: The only sane way to use reddit!
- (2019-12-09) Shoaib Mohammed: This is great and I love it but you should have an option to disable it without fully removing it from chrome
- (2019-12-04) Devin Braun: Works great without any issues. Im staying with old as long as reddit lets me!

- (2019-08-24) Daniel O Broin: 5 stars because it used to work as advertised, 1 star because it no longer works at all. New reddit just loads regardless. So 3 stars on average.

- (2019-02-27) Daelin Chan: No longer works. All google links I click redirect to new Reddit

- (2019-02-21) Used to work amazing - now doesn't work at all anymore...
- (2019-02-20) A A: I was having issues with it not working.. I uninstalled and reinstalled. It worked for a little and sometimes I had to refresh the tab for it to work again. So I installed Chrome Canary and now it works perfectly.
- (2019-09-27, v:1.1.3) Andy Zhou: Bug with "more replies"
This didn't happen before but recently I noticed that when I click on "more replies" to expand longer reddit threads, they do not load on the old reddit site but they expand properly on the new one.
- (2019-09-18, v:1.1.3) Michael Wolf: Allow users to make exceptions for certain subreddits and urls. (e.g: reddit.com/rpan/)
Some reddit features cannot be used or accessed via the old url. For example, reddit.com/rpan/ cannot be used with this extension. Right now, I need to disable the extension whenever I use /rpan/, and turn it on again when I want to browse. It would be nice to be able to just define an exception for that domain instead.
- (2019-06-20, v:1.1.3) Chris M: Subdomain URL Entry -> Old reddit Redirect
I would like to suggest that typing in a subreddit via subdomain URL entry redirects you to the old reddit version of that page. For example: 1) New tab 2) typing in: "leagueoflegends.reddit.com" 3) result: new style reddit page loaded Suggested result: you are redirected here: https://old.reddit.com/r/leagueoflegends/
- (2019-04-07, v:1.1.3) Carl-Cyril Dreue: Please add an option to (temporarily) disable this extension
As a moderator it can sometimes be useful to access reddit redesign. If you could add the option to disable the extension. Either with just a click on the extension icon or a drop down menu. Now I have to go to the extensions page in chrome and disable it which is kind of a hassle. Other than that I love it!
- (2019-04-06, v:1.1.3) Rapha'el Ben Yisra'el: Found solution to old reddit displaying properly:
"Chrome 72 introduced a bug that causes some network issues with extensions. Apparently it's been fixed, however the issue is still present in Chrome 73 for me. The workaround for now is to go to chrome://flags/#network-service, set this option to "Disabled", click "Relaunch Now" on the bottom right, and try opening a video again." I found this solution on another YouTube extension that was having similar problem.
- (2019-03-12, v:1.1.3) Thomas Lenan: No longer working
- (2019-02-27, v:1.1.3) Extension no longer working
Hi there, Myself and a number of users have noted that this no longer appears to be working. I was wondering if you're intending to fix it?
- (2019-02-22, v:1.1.3) Just doesn't work
Install, still get new reddit layout.
- (2019-02-18, v:1.1.3) Bacon Sauce: Doesn't work
Your extension doesn't work anymore, sucks. Are you planning on fixing it or not?
- (2019-02-15, v:1.1.3) Daniël: Stopped Working
Stopped working around here too. Still can manually go to old.reddit.com, so I guess a Chrome update broke its ability to redirect?
