    I had made some new accounts and the layout is considerably different.

    The problem is that my bot which Id just setup to work nicely for the other layout doesnt work for the 20 or more accounts I've built up with the new layout. Loads of the elements have different ids/xpaths etc.

    Is there any way to switch back because I'm gonna have to add alot of logic checks otherwise to account for this.

    There's really no way to switch between layouts. I noticed for over a year now that Pinterest is continuously testing new formats for whatever reason. It's usually just 2 sets, so I just have 2 types of bots/macros for the right layout.

    And, yes, it's PITA to run a whole session for a few hours and finding out that nothing stuck cos this particular account has a different format from the ones you've worked with prior.

    Hehe ye, well I mostly got things running today. Alot of logic blocks in there. but it's cool cos logic I think is probably my favourite part of coding :)
