Answers to some of your frequently asked questions.
If you are having difficulty with the location of various websites, then those websites are likely seeing your ISP (Internet Service Provider) location, not your physical location.
My advice: Try accessing the settings or setup of whichever site you are seeing this issue, then stay logged in. For TV Guide, movie listings, and weather (Google), those sites will often times have the option to manually input your location under your profile settings. Or, in the case of favorites theaters (Yahoo), you can add them as favorites.
In short, BHE is not reading your location - other sites are. So, it is up to you to customize your settings through them to cater to your location.
This page does not have any advertisements or pop-ups. It never will. So, if you see anything like this, it is likely either Malware (what is Malware?), or 3rd-party software that is interfering with either your browser or your computer.
My advice: Please pay close attention to what is being advertised or what is being displayed, and search Google for ways to remove those products or those services that are identifable. That should lead to ways to remove them from your computer.
*UPDATE / April 2017*
This year I am continuing my effort to allow customization features. In the coming weeks and months, I will be iniating an OPTIONAL ability to login and set your customization features. Please see the News and Updates section for more up to date information.
Simply put- Throughout 2016, I will be working on some customization features for the homepage. However, since I prefer not to require a login or account from each of you, most links will continue to be the most popular and widely used across the Internet.
I have added several links upon request, and I am always happy to hear from you with requests. In general, most links will need to be widely used nationally.
For updated information, see the BestHomepageEver News section.
If you are having issues with the background selection feature,
For Internet Explorer, as an example, this can be found in the Internet Options -> Privacy Tab area.
Yes, you can add a panoramic picture of your own simply by e-mailing it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will crop the picture for you to fit the space, adn will add it within a week or so after receiving it.
Note: Not all pictures will be added.
While programming the homepage, I've done by very best to be backward compatible with old versions of Internet Explorer, Chrome, Mozilla, etc. However, over time, those browsers need to be updated in order to support HTML 5 and other modern languages.
If you would like to know which browser you are currently using, click here. At the time of this writing, Internet Explorer 11, Chrome 48, Firefox 44, and Safari 5.1 are the most current. If you have not updated your browser in over a year, I would recommend doing so.
Upon completion of your update, be sure to copy/paste http://BestHomepageEver.com into your new homepage settings, as many browsers attempt to advertise and direct you into their own pages.
