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 ???

The only reason I stayed with SWBell / SBC / ATT for all of these years is because of the customizable (and highly customized) home pages.  Now that this once excellent feature is gone, it's time to switch to Google.  Goodbye ATT Yahoo!

Re: Concerning New ATT.net Homepage

Markiebeau, your instructions regarding how to change the new homepage back to My Yahoo are wonderful.  Not only do the instructions allow me to once again quickly gain access to real news rather than celebrity blather, it saves power on my mobile devices.  You have done what neither AT&T nor Yahoo would provide.  Thank you.

Re: Yippee - got my old home page back!

I put up with the new portal for a few days and found the discussion forum in my search for a way to complain to ATT.  The work around to get to the old portal is terrific!  How long it will last is an open question. Still looking for a place to complain, I wonder if anyone at ATT reads the forum posts?

One more thing - anyone who gets the solution here in the forum should give kudos to the post for the solution.  Maybe that will draw attention to the problem to the powers that be at ATT.

New ATT Page - Please Let People Get Their Old Homepage Back!

The new homepage came up without any notice & with no option to use your old one.  The http://my.yahoo.com/?fr=whatever link will take to your old homepage but I don't know how long this will last.  Please give me an option for our old homepages before I go looking for another service provider.

I want the other page back. Everything I was interested in was on that page. This one is confusing and I can get nothing local. It also tells me I have no mail when I do.

Re: HERE IS THE FIX

If you're using Internet Explorer, on your menu bar go to Tools, and at the bottom of the pulldown menu, Internet Options, General Tab, take out everything in the Home Page box, and enter: http://www.my.yahoo.com/. Then hit apply, then OK at the bottom of the page. When you hit on your Home tab (Small House Icon) it will take you where you want to be. Just sign in as you normally would. Should be all set!!

Re: att.net beta - Feedback

[ Edited ]

This new web design sucks! I have bad sites and the flashing of the stories make me dizzy. Why don't you let us decide if we like it or not? I thought this was a free country. But no!  You shove this new design down our throats. You should give us the option to change it back!

I HATE IT!!!

Re: att.net beta - Feedback

This newly formatted (home page) is awful and I didn't  ask for it or like it.  I Want to go back to the way it was I liked it much better.  This is really a mess and very hard to read and understand. Wy can't uses leave well enough alone. Why can't we make our owe choice. You get use too it one way then you change it your way with out notice. Not  caring about the people who use it or pay for the service.  It should be are choice not yours. I SERIOUSLY have to wonder if you work for AT&T. The new format is NOT pretty, and certainly not EASY to use. The old format was customizable, and much easier to use. If this is the direction Windows is headed in, and the format that they plan to use, they need to go back to the drawing boarded does not mean better.

Re: personalize home page

Anyone get an answer to this subject.....I ABSOLUTELY HATE the new home page. I want to be able to add my own customized content, and place it on the page in what ever order I want.

Seriously thinking of picking a new home page and getting rid of ATT all together.
