When I follow the instructions to import the settings I get the message "Nothing can be imported from that file at this time" What is the problem?

igHome cannot use all of the iGoogle gadgets (if any!). When I imported my iGoogle settings I noticed no difference to that which I had already set up.

Thanks Woolwellbut can I not import my bookmarks, if so how?

Sorry I don't understand about bookmarks. They are not related to iGoogle but to your browser. Which browser are you using?

Google Chrome

Disregard my last post - the bookmarks are Google bookmarks. I'll look into it. But suspect that it may be related to Chrome.

I find that if I click on bookmarks on the igHome bar then it gives me very old bookmarks which seem to date from when I had the Google toolbar installed. I find it a bit worrying that they have appeared as I had no idea they were being recorded. Google bookmarks faq - a bit old.

Do you have a gadget showing your bookmarks in iGoogle?

I am totally cofused now as I have just dicovered that google bookmarks are not compatible with google chrome bookmarks. (whatever that means! ) but if you have any further info in the future please let me know. Thanks
