      When Yahoo made changes to their Finance API, they also begin enforcing quotas by the hour and by the day. Due to the traffic from igHome, sometimes the API is successful and sometimes it is not. They do not offer a paid/commercial API. I have researched other sources of the data, and the monthly subscription prices are ridiculous and not justifiable.

      I recommend Uday’s Stock Watch gadget as his implementation works differently. The stock data is retrieved from your computer rather than the igHome servers. In addition, you can add data regarding your portfolio, view charts, news, etc. I have included a link to the gadget below.

    • Stock Quotes Still Not Working!

      This is noted completed as of 11/23 but is still not working and no comment from Mike Sutton since he noted it completed. Re-posting this as a new issue to see if there will be comment from Mike as he is obviously ignoring the issue. Tired of seeing the "Stock Quotes Under Maintenance" message and the inability to add your own ticker symbols (deleted the gadget and re-installed to see if that fixed but no change except my tickers are now gone and can't get rid of MSFT and AAPL).

                  • Facebook Navigation Icon Images Missing from ighome home page

                    The past few days, ighome was down late night my time. Then yesterday, it was totally down for an hour or so. When back, it seemed to repopulate itself as it was not in cache. Yesterday, the next day, all loads from cache except the images for the Facebook gadget navigation icons. Seems just the images are missing, function works. Any word on when or how to get them back?

                    • Search box loses text

                      The search box, as it stands, has a very annoying habit of partially or completely clearing what you're typing if the ad at the bottom loads while you're typing. For example, earlier I was searching "green bean casserole from scratch". So I start typing "green be" and use autocomplete to bring up the first three words. Then I start typing "from scratch" and suddenly the "from scratch" part disappears. Other times I'll type a whole search phrase and it disappears entirely.

                      I hope you can fix this, its highly annoying. Especially if an ad takes an unusual amount of time…

                            Since making the switch from igoogle to ighome, I have noticed that a Google search via ighome does not yield as many results as a search via Google directly, to a highly-noticeable level. I use Google frequently for my job and now find myself having to go straight to Google even though I use ighome as my home page and want the kind of functionality it generally offers.

                                  • Hamster widget

                                    People really love their hamsters! I made a custom widget #5041863 to replace mine that I lost from igoogle.

                                      I've tried to change the number of columns to see how things would look. The change doesn't show right away. In one instance, it didn't show for a couple of hours.

                                      • Please FIX the NOAA US Local Weather Forecast (Compact)

                                        This also applies to the "non-Compact" version.
                                        This gadget has stopped working when you enter a City, State. It does work when you use a zip-code HOWEVER, previously, I was able to enter a city/state and the NOAA gadget resolved that entry into longitude and latitude coordinates.

                                        When entering a zip code, ONLY the zip-code is displayed (Not a city/state). Whereas, when entering a city/state, the city/state is displayed within the gadget.

                                        There are more than 7,800 users who use these two gadgets,
                                        PLEASE fix the gadget when you get a chance.

                                          I think it's pretty obvious.
