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 (or click Login button at upper right part of homepage), 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.

Option 1. If some of your icons appear odd, try to delete them, then re-add them.

Option 2. Still not fixed? Try signing out, doing a hard refresh of your browser's cache (CTRL + F5). Then signing back in.

Best Homepage Ever is cross-browser and cross-device compatible.

If you have a sticky note overlapping the clock, it's probably because the resolution of your device is a bit lower than usual.

My best recommendation is to hide either the clock or the notes, which can be done in your Homepage Settings.

Homepage Settings Display Options Hide Notes/Clock
