looks like the new racing post site has dumbed down in preparation  for all the new ITV viewers that will come "flooding" into racing
Pause Switch to Standard View Is the Old racing post site still...

Of course it is -

The 'New' Site is in beta mode - meaning still/just TESTING.

You must, somehow. be accessing racingpost via that BETA mode - whereas the vast majority are still using the USUAL access and site ... in fact, the vast majority are probably still unaware that there actually is a BETA 'New'site, or what a beta site is.

How are you accessing racinpost? - given that you are having to ask if the CURRENT/USUAL  site is, "still available."

BETA version - is when a new website is being launched - or existing website changed, somewhat.

After Alpha Testing - which is done 'in house' and not normally seen by the public/end users - a website is put into BETA version, and then made available online, either to trusted subscribers/users or the public, for TESTING and appraisal for faults and FEEDBACK by end users - before a FINAL, completed, version is launched - usually then replacing any previous version(s).

New RP site is free to use for anyone interested.  Notable errors - At A Glance does not bring up the last six runs and nothing tells you whether a race is a chase or a hurdle.
Report onlooker November 25, 2016 8:51 PM GMT
Yes - jmdc -

NO Option for FULL MEETING in 'At a Glance' format -  was the first ERROR that I fired off to them.

When in a Single 'At a Glance' Race (the ONLY 'At a Glance' Display, at present) ...

-  'Show all racecards for this meeting on one page'  ... then senselessly DEFAULTS back to BILLBOARD size Colour Cards style, instead. Cry

searching for past owner and trainer form is annoying - the search function is not as easy.

i got the old up by going to foot of Home Page and clicking go back to Racing Post ,but now it seems that has gone, is there any other way you can return to the old site
Report jmdc March 28, 2017 11:50 AM BST
No.  I find the new site is a bit trickier to use but all the old features that I use are still there.  Where they have been naughty is changing At A Glance to Card and changing the Form Setting.  The new At A Glance is virtually useless.

I hate the new form setting,

Millington is a cnt (nap)
