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.

It appears AT&T and Yahoo are diluting their partnership, separating their "home" pages like they used to be. Thus, att.net is mildly "powered by Yahoo" and my.yahoo.com is ... well it still has a big att stamp on it. Perhaps there is a non-att-branded my.yahoo.com version for people who never had att email, dsl etc.?

Many many years ago I used my.yahoo.com, without att integration, then my experience was integrated because I had a pacbell account.

I would think my.yahoo.com would stick around as long as Yahoo is around. ATT does not own Yahoo, and should not be able to dictate what my.yahoo.com is. If ATT does not want any customizable home page of their own, so be it.

Thank you- all of you who suggested the myyahoo direction to find my old homepage- I have been completely disoriented for weeks now-almost losing my mind, and certainly my ability to keep up with what was going on in MY world.

I emailed at&t with complaints but it doesn't seem like they have the ability to communicate back with their customers- even a little acknowledgement of the issues and  a "we're working to make it better" would go such a long way...

I hope this yahoo homepage will last at least until I can figure out where to go permanently.

Thanks again -y'all have saved my sanity

AT&T ought to take the hint as to how many people are complaining about this - but probably won't.  My biggest complaint is the scrolling news - I am 72 years old and have trouble reading this little "scrollIng" bit - I really hate it!  It IS TRULY irritating!!  Makes me nervous!!!  Normally don't have trouble with computers - but have switched to Yahoo homepage - and will find another if it is not better!

Thank you so very much art333 for the advice on how to get your homepage back to the old one. I tried it and it worked. I just pray that it stays that way. I hate the new homepage. And I mean really hate it.

Well, now it's worse than ever before. For those of us who managed to get our old homepages through Yahoo back? It's now gone for good. Thanks to AT&T/Yahoo deciding it was time to screw us out of our PERSONALIZED homepages, now the Yahoo page is just as bad as the AT&T page. And do they care? Of course not, or they would have left the page alone AS THEY PROMISED THEY WOULD when the AT&T homepage was crapped up for good. So, they LIED to us when they said they wouldn't change the old Yahoo PERSONALIZED homepage!!!

 

I may as well go back to Comcast if I want to be constantly lied to!!!

Here we go again. Why is it everyone thinks they have to improve something that isn't broken? Bill Gates, Apple, YAHOO! web page, ATT.NET web page? What, a bunch of people "updating" things to prove their jobs are needed? This gets old. Hey, if you want to update something, fix the older stuff that is still broken! Bill Gates, ask us before our Outlook & Explorer starts changing things and we get better fix-it answers on the web than through your own help pages. Apple, put a page back function on your Safari. YAHOO! and ATT, give us the choice of staying with the old WEB pages we've customized and are happy with... if you want to fix something, get rid of huge boxes with itsy-bitsy type font in them. Actually, if you get rid of all the space between the text on a page and make the font larger, we can not only read the pages better but we don't have to scroll all over the place see something. Don't get me started on all the tiny program and web page icons that don't have pop-up text definitions. We can read and no, we don't all remember what some arcane, weird-looking micro-icon means. Ok, whew! Guess there was a pressure relief valve that got stuck, eh? ATT, give us a choice NOT to change to the new "improved" web pages.

My local news module lists news headlines from a couple small town newspapers a couple of counties over instead of the newspapers and other news media sources in my more metropolitan area.  This is new with the new 'improved' MyYahoo homepage.  Is there a way to override this or must we wait tell Yahoo/ATT fixes this problem?
