igHome set up

  B.J. 09:38 03 Oct 2013

Hello Folks. Is anybody else setting up igHome as a replacement for igoogle? I've more or less finished it now and it looks almost just the same as igoogle...so I'm pleased. It can be very slow sometimes but they are telling us that they will crank it up a gear soon....they're snowed under right now with people changing to it. How can I get Google Map Search and my weather forecasts to it? I can get 'em on my new homepage in the small format but I can't expand 'em to use 'em. Any ideas please? Thanks....B.J.

Thank you for alerting me to igHome. As far as I can work out you can only enlarge the gadgets by grabbing the lower edge and dragging down or up.

Not sure what you man by my weather forecasts as I've added BBC weather and Weather radar. I'm having problems getting it to stick to the settings. Google Map gadget appears to end with iGoogle but the igHome menu bar includes Google Maps.

Hello Woolwell. Thanks for that...I've put 8 gadgets on and I'm pleased with them and when I click on the header of the gadget it reloads and expands full page but when I have google maps as a gadget it wont go any bigger. I've found a good weather forecast gadget AccuWeather.com which I'll just have to get used to,it seems OK. Yes I'm able to access Gmaps off the bar but I don't like change....I want to keep my igoogle....it's perfect for our house. Anyway thanks again Woolwell. All the best with it. B.J.

I hope I'm in the right location on the site.

I've been using igHome for about two months now and I'm sold! The setup was relatively simple for a mostly neophite of computer knowledge. But I've encountered one problem that's irritating.

I'm in a search for a new computer right now. When I search a topic on the first page in igHome and then click on the link all is well. But when I've studied two or more pages and then go to the offered link and then back to the primary search, the back button returns me to page one of the searches, not the third or fourth page I was using at the time. Hope this isn't confusing.

I wonder if I have something set on my laptop that is returning me to page one of the search every time.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
