Re: news button

You can find the News section by going to Sitemap > At Home > scroll down to Hot Topics, and then there's a News section.

You should be able to create a shortcut, but not sure(?).

Re: news button

Ribblelancs, thank you for that tip. I found sitemap by scrolling to bottom of screen and found news where you said it would be. I couldn't find a way to add it my menu. What I did do was save it as my home page to replace the BT.com page I had previously saved as the url was different, it had /news then a string of numbers in it after the bt.com.

Re: news button

If News saves as your homepage, then you will be able to save it as a shortcut, if required.

For ie11, it would be right click on News , then "add to shortcuts". (you can add the shortcut to ie11 menu bar).

Re: news button

It's gone from mine too and when I went on Help and "chatted" to advisers neither of them appeared to understand what I meant by my Home Page! Needless to say I still don't have the News button. I also used it for web searches. Hey Ho!

Re: news button

This is approximately 7 months on but my news button disappeared at about the same time but I have been able to get to the news page until today as I had book marked it. later today when I clicked on the book mark for BT.com news, it changed to BT tv shows and films ! and continues to do so ! So can someone please tell me why the news button disappeared in the first place and why has the news page completely disappeared now ? . . . . I don't want Bt tv personaly but I demand I get what I am paying for ! Apart from news, the search facility was located on this page so what is the point in paying BT's high monthly price if I am unable to search the internet. I will again  be checking out other internet providers and looking into leaving BT ! It is high time BT got it's act together as the many unsatisfied feeds on this community tell a sorry story. If they want me to pay for leaving, I would consider going to court and exposing the poor way they treat the customer !

Re: news button

Last night (11/02/2020) my homepage changed to Best of BT TV without my consent. I have gone to the site map and found the "News" button which takes me straight back to Best of TV.

Thanks, BT. I'm changing my homepage to BBC and when the time comes for contract renewal I'll look at other options for my broadband connection.
