Have you checked out “Top Picks from Your Page” yet?
This module pulls together the stories from across your page that you’re most likely to be interested in.
We like to use it when we want to catch up on the latest updates, but only have a few free minutes to spare. It’s a great way to scan the latest news on your favorite topics. And there’s also a bit of fun in seeing just how accurate it can get.
Add this module (or look for it on your What’s New page).
Fall is in the air. And My Yahoo! has a new background theme to go with it. Give it a try. It’ll add some pizzazz to your page and spirit to the season.
And while you’re there, try on Winter or Spring.

The little icons at the top of each module may be small and unassuming, but they can be quite useful in getting your page exactly the way you want it.
Refresh (circling arrows): Click this when you want the freshest information possible. If new items are available, they’ll appear in your module.
Module Options (cog): Access a bunch of settings and functions specific to that module.
• Set the amount of information you want to show in each module such as number of headlines or format (include images, headlines only, short summaries, etc.)
• Share the module with someone by email or IM
• Set up Alerts
Here’s an example from the Engadget module:
Delete (X): You can probably figure that one out on your own.
Check out the Personal Assistant module, which packs many of the most frequently used modules into one little box. Six buttons give you the at-a-glance info you need throughout the day. Like today’s weather forecast or a peek at your horoscope (admit it, you look every so often!).
And when you hover over a button, you get a preview. So if you’re looking to tighten up your page, the Personal Assistant can save you some space.
The default view is shown above, but our team knows that choice is a wonderful thing. So you pick the buttons that appear. Swap out Lottery for Sports. To choose your buttons, click the cog icon in the upper right to see your choices. From there, you can customize further to get exactly the info you want.
Play around with this one – we’re pretty sure you’lll find it handy.
