igHome Login and Server Problems

If like most people you were looking for an iGoogle alternative you came across igHome, but once starting your very own page things looks and work very well indeed. But, things do go wrong form time to time and here is where you can complain and have your say when say the igHome servers go down or you are having login problems.

There are times you will see on-screen messages on igHome such as, We have had a server failure. We are working to resolve service. Short outages may be necessary as we bring more resources online. Thank you for your patience. If this is the case or you see any other messages then we would love to read your comments, do have your say about your service.

Are you having igHome problems right now? Main issues can include not being able to login, the iGoogle portal or gadgets not working or maybe you are having severe servers issues or having personal dashboard problems. In the past other users have complained on social networks that they have had messages saying, you do not have permission to view this directory or page, if this is the case we want to report this as it will help others.

  • Paul

    igHome has had a server failure, so now and then we are seeing short outages.

  • Andrew

    I am having issues with gathering news on igHome.

  • My whole ‘home page’ has been disrupted… does this mean I’ll have to reconfigure it or will it come back as before?

  • Klaus

    At the moment, we see virtually nothing!
    All settings are gone.
    I hope they have a backup…!?!

  • Kim Fyson

    My homepage has reverted to a very old one. My latest links, etc. have all been replaced with ones from ages ok. Will be getting the latest one back? My whole life is on hold!!!

  • Cattus

    Besides the igHome failure message I keep getting a message as follows: “This type of file can harm your computer. Do you want to keep CalendarClockAnalogueFaceDark.swf? with Discard or keep choices.

    Anybody have this error too?

  • Chir0n

    Same here Kim. Driving me nuts! If it turns out that current user setups weren’t backed-up, we should all definitely move elsewhere, en masse.

  • chuck osmund

    Same here too. Lots of old feeds that I’d deleted over time — none of the recent ones I’ve added. It’s got to be well over a year old.

  • Dolphin Bunnywolf

    Their newest backup appears to be 2013. All my customized feeds and widgets down the crapper, black bar links gone — I used these for work, now I have to find and recreate them all. The best part: no longer https. Sorry lol

  • Dolphin Bunnywolf

    Yep, and they’re real sorry about it too haha

  • Dolphin Bunnywolf

    No backup, all my settings are gone. Fooey.

  • twinwolf

    Server failures happen there is NO EXCUSE for not having backups!! If i rebuild all of the my links, tabs, gadgets… what happens the next time they have a failure and no backups?? NO THANKS… I prefer a service that has backups or lets me do backups so I am not wasting my time and my clients time.

  • Kim Fyson

    I agree but I haven’t found an alternative yet. Any suggestions?

  • PimHelmy Bueno de Mesquita Esq

    I was relying on you guys… takes hours to reconstruct… when should i start… any chance on recovery? No backup… 4 years old homepage… all my notes and stuff gone…

  • yoyoegg

    Epic fail. No backups!

  • Chir0n

    There are plenty of Homepages out there (if you search for ‘alternatives to ighome’ you’ll find plenty of articles evaluating these), but I’ve yet to find one suitable for my needs.

    How are you getting on? Any joy yet?

  • Kim Fyson

    No prospect of getting my page back I believe. I have begun to reconfigure it but I won’t know what I’ve lost until I miss it (if you see what I mean?). I haven’t found a viable alternative yet either. Lets just hope that ighome have learnt their lesson and this wont happen again.

  • Chir0n

    We live in hope (and yeah, I know exactly what you mean about not knowing what you’ve lost…) Anyway, good luck.

    When I opened my igHome personal dashboard this afternoon, I was inexplicably logged in with an unknown gmail account: xxjordxx@gmail.com. When I logged out and logged back in with my gmail address, I found that my profile and settings no longer exist. It worked fine last night. What at cluster fest! Very disappointing.

  • Sathya Ijjapureddy

    I am sick and tired, I lost most of my to-do list and reminders . ..I have valuable data in that .. I lost all of it.. In future is there any way I can take backup for my data ?

  • Ant Mull

    Horror Story – all my links gone. When will it be resolved?

  • Pierrette N. Chabot

    None of the gadgets save. Every time I open the site I get the same bunch of German language gadgets. I’ve tried to reset them every day since the server crashed. What’s the point of being “up” if igHome does nothing but Google search effectively? The organization needs to be open about the problem and solution timelines.

  • JC

    Where are all the complaints from May 2nd through May 6th (today)? I’ve been patiently waiting for the problems of a couple of weeks ago to improve, but they’re not. Blank gadgets is the main problem; not all of them, but over half. I can’t continue depending on the site if this goes on much longer. I’m not hearing any status updates either. At least for a while, they asked our understanding because of server problems. Now, it seems they have administrator problems too.

  • Matthew Tucker

    I lost all my data from ighome – to do lists, links, notes, etc.

  • Neptune

    Lost my data, most gadgets are not working. No responses from admin. I’m bailing

  • Jody

    Looks like it happened again…

  • 4dotz

    I can’t get to my Homepage, it keeps saying it’s not secure ! What’s happening and when will it be fixed ? Getting very frustrated!

  • El

    My IGHome personal page is frequently down, and again this morning. Will have to switch if service doesn’t improve

  • Free turk

    I gave up using ighome, put a lot of effort earlier in selecting the pages i want tot see, and all got lost. I won’t spend an extra 4-5 hours to lose my selection again.

  • jorqus

    terrible since the recent changeover. I have customized my pages several times, but igHome will not keep them. The home page I get several widgets that I don’t want including a couple in foreign languages. Such a shem

  • thelearner

    today, July 17th 2017 most of the gadgets aren’t loading. Hope its temporary. Its makes a great home page and personally I’ve never had it lose my pages once they were set up.

  • Randy Morrison

    Looks like IGHome is down this morning, 7/26/17.
    Just me?

  • Rod Paul

    Yeah, wouldn’t log in last night or this morning.

  • Helen Blinder

    Same here..hope it comes back, I write myself reminders..I should have copied them..

  • shelleyn411

    ighome page still effed up. If not fixed soon I will switch to another home page.

  • Jim Devereaux

    I have problems returning to my ighome page while browsing. It goes back to the google home page. I then have to “call up” my ighome page in the search box. This is not a constaint problem it depends on the web site I am on. this problem only started a couple weeksw ago. PLEASE FIX!! thank you

  • Thomas Powell

    When I choose an article in Google News, under Top Stories lets say. It does not go to the article, it goes to an everything page. That is a ton of news articles I am not interested in. I just want the headlines, ie. TOP STORIES.
