    I have been using Yahoo as my home page for many moons now, utilizing the daily planner/calendar, news, weather etc features to good effect. Lately, however, I find myself unable to enter the daily planner feature to add or delete events etc.

    I can see the planner on myyahoo page. However, when I click to enter the calendar for daily planner, it requests a log on over and over again and I can't get in to update.

    Does anyone else have this problem? I can't seem to find anyway to contact Yahoo for personalized help and none of the troubleshooting Q & A's seem to work. I have tried clearing cookies and adjusting internet options for cookies to no avail.

    I have had only one id and one password.

    Previously, I would enter them to bring up my home page. My calendar would display on the left.

    I could use the add event feature for example by clicking on that item in the calendar without having to go through security again. Also, I could use the full menu of requests, eg I could schedule the reminders and so on.

    Now I can't do that. I still get the calendar on the left but when I click "add event" say, I have to go thru security again and it doesn't accept me.

    I d/l the widgets package a while back and the daily planner pops up when I boot up. I can sign in to that OK and, curiously enough, I can add events thru that. However, when you use the widget, you don't get the full menu of requests allowing reminder scheduling etc plus it's not so convenient.

    I guess there is some conflict between the widget version and the regular one. However, I have tried a number of combinations w/o success.

    Tonight, I decided to create a new account. The planner is there on the page but when I try to add an event . . . . . same problem. The security screen pops up but won't accept my new id/PW.

    Help!

    Thanks.

    I do that regularly but it doesn't seem to make any difference.
