How do I add custom RSS feeds to the new home page?

The old AT&T site allowed custom content through the use of RSS feeds. When the new home page popped up, unsolicited and without an option to remain on the old page, my custom feeds were gone. There were no FAQs or information on how to preserve my custom content.

personalize home page

First time so sorry if I do this wrong. About the new home page for ATT.com. I can't figure out if it can  be personalized like the old one. I miss having my horoscope and don't see how to add it. Also, for weather. I added my city but even though I set it as the default I still get Richardson, TX (NOT my city) first and then have to go to the number 2 city (which is correct) to get my weather. What's up with that.

And I seem to be listed as a default location of Reno, NV. That is not true. How can I get my page personalized, get it to recognize that I live in Battle Mountain, NV and show weather for that area instead of defaulting to Richardson, TX? I miss the old home page and DO NOT like this new version.

I too am unhappy with with this new home page. Before I had all the information I needed on one page. I could see the scores of my teams, my stocks and the news sources I like to follow. I see little need to use this for my homepage any longer.

I want my old customized page back, this new one sucks and offers little that I am interested in.  Considering changing to a new home page, I had everything that I enjoyed at my fingertips and now it is gone. I HATE IT, I HATE IT, IHATE IT, I HATE IT OH DID I MENTION THAT I REALLY HATE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I hate it too.  Please find a way to reset it before I have to cancel all my accounts and move to Google home.

Re: How do I add custom RSS feeds to the new home page?

AM having the same issue. Please advise ... anyway to get those back or have we just lost them? 

 

My stock feeds are gone, the science page I made up to read science wires for my work are all gone. The cooking page I made is gone. I no longer have the job posting feed. The local news RSS feeds I had subscribed to for checking local news for work is gone.

 

This has really screwed things up for me. Where's an alternative site where I can have my RSS feeds and not worry about someone moving my cheese all over the place any more?

The new homepage is a piece of CRAP.

Pretty much everything that I liked (customization of background, placement, content) is gone.

Replaced by ATT's obvious wisdom as to what I want to see.

 

This sucks!

Ditto to this. Any suggestions for an alternative?

I have job posting feeds I need to monitor, stocks, particular news feeds I'm watching for work. This has totally screwed things up for me. I HATE the change. They didn't even ask or warn us that this was coming so we'd have have any option to keep our stuff. Smiley Sad

The ONLY reason this was my homepage was because I could combine all of my calendars here.  Thanks for the heads up AT&T...I'm totally screwed and I hate this homepage.  Way to busy with gossip and stuff I absolutely do not care about.  I'm too busy to be bothered with what you think I might like.  Give my CHOICES BACK!!

There IS an option (although it may be very temporary.)

I found that by going to Yahoo.com (while logged in), I had the option of going to "My Yahoo" (http://my.yahoo.com/?fr=whatever).  This is the old homepage, with all customization options available.

I'm not sure that this will be maintained, but for the short-term it IS a solution.

Maybe the massive complaints will convince AT&T to re-think their decision....

We can only hope.....

I cannot believe how poorly designed the new interface is.   Nobody wants to have to drag over or click on item to view information.  We used to have everything right there and easily available. Whoever did their interface design needs to re-educated in user interface design.

Actually, they did warn us this was coming (for months), HOWEVER, they (apparently, conveniently) failed to tell us that we'd be losing our personlized pages! This is unacceptable, and as with all of you, I want my personlized homepage back! The new setup is HORRIBLE! It looks exactly like the page when you would sign out of your personlized homepage looks. I hated that look, and never used it, so what makes AT&T think I'd want to use this?!

 

I didn't worry about the switchover, because I thought it was only replacing the old main page you see when you're not signed in to you're personalized homepage. If I'd known it was replacing the personlized page, I'd have spoken up sooner. I suspect that this is why they failed to tell us that this is what was going to happen!

 

Absolutely unacceptable, AT&T! Put the personalized homepages back!

Re: How do I add custom RSS feeds to the new home page?

I found this site which might be an alternative http://www.netvibes.com/

 

It is a free news portal site that lets you add your own modules and arrange things as you wish.
