    Alright so I go to Apple.com, click on .Mac, click on hompage and I don't know where to go from there. I want to edit the site I made yesterday on .Mac.

    Thanks in advance!

    Once you're logged in, click HomePage in the blue bar, and the main HomePage interface will appear. From there, you can make any edits you wish to make. You can tell that you're logged in by looking at the right side of the blue bar. If it says "Log in", you're not logged in. If there's a gray oval there with your .Mac username inside it, you're logged in.

    There's a two-part box near the top left of the main HomePage interface listing all your pages. Click the one you want to edit in the left pane to select it. A preview will appear in the right pane. Click the Edit button below the box to edit the page you picked.

    I have to do some reality checks now:

    1. Go to your .Mac homepage address. Is there a site there?
    2. Check the Sites folder in your iDisk. Do you see at least two files: index.html and [content_type][number].html (where content_type is FileSharing, PhotoAlbum, etc. depending on the template you used and number is...well...a number)?

    Somehow, your HomePage has become disassociated from .Mac, so the HomePage tool doesn't know about it. I don't know what to suggest other than recreating your page using the existing one as a template (open the existing page in Safari, print it to a PDF, then look at the PDF when designing its replacement).
