Whether you love the classic rivals of the College Football Saturdays or the primetime NFL battles of Sunday, you can use your My Yahoo! Page to stay in the huddle.
Me personally, I just joined my first Fantasy Football league and needless to say I’m in the back of the pack. Take it from me, as someone who needs as much help as possible in selecting a Sunday lineup, there are a few modules that keep me plugged into what’s going on with my teams.
My favorite is the Dr. U Fantasy Football Guru module. Who wouldn’t want a guru on their side when making their Sunday picks? This module has recommended picks, sleepers, and even the weekly “studs and duds.”
If Fantasy Football is not your thing, but the perfect plate of nachos and buffalo wings is the usual Sunday afternoon menu, check out the Taquitos.net Random Snacks module. They have some interesting tips about new kinds of chips, perfect for dipping and snacking! If you want the full menu of football foods, check out the football recipes page on Recipetips.com.
Enjoy, and try not to yell at the TV too much on Sunday!

Some of you who have set up multiple tabs and organized your content on various tabs have asked for the option to reorder the tabs. I’m happy to tell you that you can now change the order of the tabs on your page faster than you can say “My Yahoo!”.
Last time I showed you how to create a tab dedicated to all your friends’ blogs, feeds, and other activity. I’m so enamored with my “Best People in the Universe” tab, I’d like to make it my first tab.
So I place my cursor over the tab I want to move, click on it, and drag it where I want. In this case, I drag my “Best People in the Universe” all the way to the left.
Now when I open my browser, I see right away what my friends and family are doing.
Drag, drop, repeat. Try it out!

While My Yahoo! can’t control the direction of the market, we want to make tracking your stocks a little more pleasant.
We’ve recently made some improvements to the Stock Portfolios module:
- We replaced the symbols for major market indices with the indices’ names. Bye bye, ^SPC. Hello, S&P 500.
- We made the price change and percent change easier to read, replacing the graphical arrows with standard + and – symbols. This should also make the data print properly and work with screen readers and other assistive devices.
- We’ve given you more control by adding a Preferences panel. If you don’t need the price change and percentage change columns, you can now hide them to reduce clutter. And if you have more than one portfolio, you can determine the order they are displayed on your My Yahoo! page. Click on the “gear” icon at the top of the module to see these new settings.
- If you set upper and lower limit indicators for a symbol, an indicator appears to the left of the current price when the stock is above or below your limits. In the example below, PHO has fallen below my lower limit of 20. Time to buy?
Tip: To set upper and lower limits, click on the “Edit” link next to the name of your portfolio. This will take you to the “Edit your portfolio” page. Towards the bottom of the page, in “Step 4: Advanced Features”, you can indicate which extra information you’d like to track, then click on “Enter More Info” to input the information.

If you’re like me, pretty much everyone you know is posting stuff to the Internet these days. Most of my friends have blogs of some sort. My cousin also plows a ton of baby pics onto Flickr every week. Even my grandma is on Facebook!
How do I keep track of all this activity? On My Yahoo of course!
Over the last two posts, we covered how to add content to My Yahoo via Add to My Yahoo buttons and RSS. Now that you know how, you can create a special page to follow your friends and family.
Here’s how I do it.
First: I want to keep My Yahoo! organized, so I put all my friends’ activity on its own tab. So I click “New Tab,” and then call my fresh canvas “The Best People in the Universe.”
Second: I navigate to my friends’ blogs, Flickr feeds, Twitter, Facebook updates or whatever they update most frequently and look for Add to My Yahoo buttons and RSS logos.
After I add my friend’s feeds to My Yahoo, I drag my friends to my “Best People” tab, which I know they’ll appreciate more than when I drag them to my favorite noisy punk concerts.
Ta-da! Now I’ve got a hot, instant connection to my friends. When my old roommate finally dumps her slobby boyfriend, I’ll know. When my cousin’s baby starts reading Proust, I’ll know.
Now if I could just make a tab that tells me when my boss is watching…
