New Watchlist layout does not show correct order, is there a way to go back to the previous layout? I don't like the new layout, it's too slow and it mixed all new movies with old movies in my watchlist, there should be a way to select the previous layout

When you open your watchlist, there will  a option by name "Sort by" on the top right side of the list just click on it and select the last option "Date added" .The watchlist will be sorted according to the date added hence arranging all movies in chronological order

"Sort by Date" doesn't work for me. Titles that i added recently are on the last page. It worked fine until the new "layout" was implemented,i think.

It sounds like you have changed your sort order preference. To change the sort order back, go to your watchlist page and in the upper right there's a link labelled "Edit List" and when you click that, on the next page (http://www.imdb.com/list/edit?list_id=watchlist) there's a link in the upper right again labelled "Change List Settings" and when you click that, a box will appear with options at the bottom to control the default sort order and the viewing mode.  If you choose "IMDb Default" then the sort order will place the most recently added titles first (or feel free to choose any of the other orders if they suit your needs better).

What's up with the watchlist now?.


The watchlist now is now loading slower now than it ran before and now the "date added" function doesn't even work properly it has random choices when you reverse it. It seems like it still has bugs with it. Have tried the "edit list" comes up with the correct order when you are "edit list" page and both "list order" and "oldest added first" still comes up with the same problem when you have saved the changes.

I'm having the same issue.  If I select List Order, first it shows me the last item rather then the first item.  I reverse order to see the first item.  Then I find that items 1-8 do not show up.  The list starts with item 9.  If I click edit list, I see items 1-8 exactly as I expect.  Can this be fixed? or is there a way to go back to the previous layout, which was much cleaner.

If I go to Edit List, the list is in the correct order. None of the sort options will put my watchlist in the same order as when I'm in Edit List. I had the same problem the last time the new layout was brought out.

Even sorted by list order, the movies go #24, 30, 32, 36, 37, 39, 44, etc.

Ditto on the problem - Add to it that several titles I added recently do not now show on my Watchlist. How do I get the old Watchlist back?

We have fixed the issue where customers were seeing titles in different order and/or missing from their Watchlist. 

We also deployed a fix to retain the actual list order number on the Watchlist display (view mode) when sorting by List Order.

Regarding the List order sort preference (available under List Settings), with the new Watchlist launch, we changed the default direction for this sort to be descending (last item in the list will be displayed at the top). Based on customer feedback, we will be reverting the default direction to the old experience, ascending order, wherein the first item in the list would be displayed at the top. The option to change the sort direction when viewing / editing a Watchlist will continue to be available. 

We appreciate your patience while we are working through the fixes. If you are experiencing any other issue related to the new Watchlist, please let us know.
