    Frankly, I think that you're kidding yourself about that, but that's ok. I figured out how to bypass the 'Home Page' so it won't affect me any longer.

    Maybe yes and maybe no, at least on this one issue. I think Peter has given us what we've asked for and then some on all other issues.

    But, if you read my whole post, there's instructions there on how to bypass your "home page" if you want to.:D

    Is anyone else having to resign in with a user name and password whenever they visit the gauge? I used to just be permanently logged in, but today whenever I come to the gauge from a new explorer window it doesn't recognize me and I have to reenter the user name and password. I also lose my preferences for the "gauge classic format" and have to reset. Not a huge deal, but a new quirk associated (I think?) with the new home page feature.

    You probably need to delete the old cookie, then the new one will work.

    Deleted the old cookie, and all is good now. Thanks, Peter, for the quick reply.

    Yikes...I just got to the new Home Page....not to fear though...I hummed a few bars of "Innagaddadavida"...and found my way back to Oz:thumb: Meantime, I'll be in the corner of my layout room sucking my thumb and whimpering whilst pondering joining a crocheting blog.:D

    Put what back? :confused: You can go back to all blue if that's what you're talking about. Just go to the bottom of any page and change your selection. If you don't like getting here through the "home" page, then just link to the main page to get here. As for anything else, what's not to like?:D

    Ausien, yes the spell checker is an addon to Internet Explorer. If you want to use it, you do have to do the download. Several people, including myself, have installed it without any issues. As with any download, however, use caution and what works for everyone else may not work for you.

    Ausien: I had to disable the pop-up suppressor to get the spellcheck to download.
    Last time I used it, it didn't like "gauges" as a word.
