Logins from Best Homepage Ever Classic do not carry over to the main homepage. You will want to create a new account.

No problem! Go to Best Homepage Ever's login page, and click Forgot Password. From there, you can just enter your email, and follow the prompts.

If you share the homepage on a desktop computer with others in your family (which I do), I recommend using multiple web browsers or browser logins.

Each browser will remember your unique ID, which will in turn remember your own personal websites, settings, and background.

For Google Chrome, for example, you can choose to have a separate login for your browser (pictured here).

Depending on some browser settings, you may be logging out of websites automatically each time you close your browser. This is a somewhat common browser setting. So, be sure to check your browser settings (typically this is found in the privacy settings).

If this is not the case, it's possible you have a corrupt cookie. To solve this problem, clear your cookies. This will log you out of every site though, but once you login again, it should stay logged in.
