New ATT Page - My Customized News Content is Gone !!! - Was the Most Important Feature

How do I put the CNET and PCWorld News Stories Content back on this New ATT Home ???

.... This customized News Stories Content is the Most Important Feature of using the ATT Home Page for me, but now its gone and that was the main reason why I used ATT for My Home Page. ... Very Frustrated with this customized news content removal.

... So, what Home Page can I use now to have Customized News Content ???  --- Any one have a Suggestion ???

HERE IS THE FIX 

Set your homepage to:  http://my.yahoo.com/

 

Everything will be back to normal the way you had it setup.

I do not like the new Home page period. I liked it the way i had it customized. Im not a big fan of Yahoo either. Now with the new AT&T / Yahoo / Home page , I have to sign in every time , and yes I click the keep me signed in for 2 weeks crap , but I still have to sign in every time . They need to eliminate the auto sign out every 2 weeks and allow people to stay permanently signed in if they do choose so.

They also should give the option of keeping your personalized Home page no matter how many different home pages they come up with.

One could say this is a derivative of some form of communistic thought of " We know whats best for You " . But thank God we still have choice in this Country . I just changed my Home page to " Google " home page and will continue to use it until  AT&T/ Yahoo allows me to have my old Home page back as a choice. Whats really frustrating is , I have to access ny Bellsouth e-mail through them .

More choice is always better than one choice.

Watch out for Google too! I switched to Bing for a true and more realistic search not just what Google wanted me to know. :smileywink:

yes, AT&T has really screwed up this time. neither my husband nor I want this generic page they set up for us. Thank god the my.yahoo.com link works so far, but AT&T is going to lose us as customers if they don't go back. That means we drop Uverse, cell phone, internet. Comcast would love to have our business!

 

So....AT&T: PUT IT BACK!!!!!

I agree!!!  I don't like the look of the page and I kept ATT for my home page mainly because we could choose colors, sports teams, entertainment.  BRING BACK the old page, please!!!!

Yesterday when I typed in my.yahoo.com it just kept bumping me to the new page with the new uncustomizable format and the FAQ I read said RSS feeds were being discontinued from here on out. Today when I typed in my.yahoo.com, I had my old page back. And can't find the same FAQ I read last night. So what gives? Have they decided we can have our RSS feeds after all? 

 

On second thought, I've already spent hours and hours making a new RSS page at netvibes.com. Think I'm going to stick with that. You have lost my eyeballs for good, yahoo.

Very disgusted with the new format myself.  I may switch to another homepage option because of this.  Someone really was not on the ball. In fact, they slipped off the ball and got ran over by it.  I had previously uploaded my art to be the border on my homepage and miss the butterflies and clovers and creativity that came with the previous homepage format.

I agree completely. I plan to find a new host as well. Obviously AT&T does not respect their customers values and needs. After years of customizing your home page it is extremely rude and inconsiderate for them to just go in and simply delete it. Talk about customer service!!!!

This has been my exact complaint. AT&T has got to have the most inconsiderate incompetent service to get in the internet business.

 

I can remember how disappointed I was that they took away the local theater directory, but now they have really made me mad by deleting all of my news feeds.

 

 

Such gross incompetence!!!

I did the fix suggested and got my old home page back. I have spent a LOT of time tweaking that page to get the information I want. It had better stay or I'll look for another service. How either dumb or arrogant this change by ATT is! Who made this decision??? Really???

Is anyone else as dissapointed as I am in the new ATT home page?

Here are my reasons:

1. I wasn't asked

2. I've lost my weather info on selected cities

3. Everything seems to take longer

4. I hate HATE having images of murderers, pink slime, violence etc. hitting me in the face everytime I

go to the homepage to check my e-mail

5. And I REALLY hate all the ads.

I've tried to reset to an earlier time to get back to my old home page but of course that no longer is an option.

Anyone else having issues with this? Am I just dumb (I'm not the most PC savvy person)?

I spent a long time on the new ATT page before joining this community, since I like to figure things out on my own. I was trying to find the personal assistant, my map, and all the other little customized things that made "MY PAGE" my own which is what made me love ATT. Well, no more. Same thing with FB, which I used to be on daily before they forced a change on me, and now I hardly ever go there. So, now that ATT has done the same thing, can anyone tell me who is like our old ATT that I can change to? Been with this company since I left the old dial up AOL many years ago, so I am definately not under contract and willing to take "control of me" away from ATT. Unless they are willing to pay me, and not vice versa! Who still lets you customize?

I have no intention of allowing AT&T to censor the information I receive and then spoon feed me the information on their agenda.  It is unconscionableI that they would make such a change without advising their users they would be losing their customized content.  I will take my business elsewhere.

I've changed the new ATT home page back to my.yahoo.com, but I agree with all of those irritated by ATT changing it without giving customers the choice. A bane of technology: doing something just because it CAN be done. The scrolling "news" on the new ATT homepage is lame, irritating, and very sixth grade.

How did you change back to your old page???  the att.my.yahoo.com??? I still have this in my Internet Explorer browser as my home page upon launching IE, but I notice it immediately changes to  the new att.yahoo.com URL...is getting it changed back something that needs to be done with Yahoo, as opposed to trying to find an actual human with ATT to explain how?

 

Please enlighten all of us suffering as you did on the new garbage page on how to restore the previous version...thanks,

The new Home Page arrangement is a travesty!   Give us back our old format--there was NOTHING wrong with it.  You don't fix it if it isn't BROKEN!  Nobody gives a hoot about what a celebrity is having for dinner or who is baring their breasts in publc!  GET REAL!  The headlines banner is inconvenient and you have to scroll all the way to the bottom fo the page to see the news.

Why fix something that wasn't broken, Can't  personalize, has so much repetitive content, most of which I don;t want in the first place let alone on several different sections of the page. And unable to customize.  Please for Gods sake, change it back!!!!!!

 

Also, how in the he## do you stop the freaking pop up asking to take a tour????

The new home page is terrible. Why fix something that isn't broke? I don't have local news or other links I had a quick connection to and I can't customize it how I like. The old Home Page was MY Home Page. The new home page is a generic garbage page. Bring back the old Home Page or at least something comparable.
