Unable to add ...The Old Reader... to my front page
« on: April 10, 2013, 10:04:33 AM »
I have done a search, but don't even know the right terms. Sorry.

In the past, I have been able to go to a website; click on the "3 menu bars?" and" save the bookmark to my desktop". Then, I could long-press on the bookmark itself and I get a message asking if I want to "place it on the desktop". That has worked fine for a number of sites that I frequent often.

However, with www.theoldreader.com....I say "place it on to desktop bookmarks" but it never shows up????? What am I doing wrong this time?  I've done the save thing two or three times.

thanks Rich

Welcome to the forum!

What browser are you using? There are many and they are all different. When you go to bookmarks, are there mobile, other, desktop etc. folders to choose from? Press bookmarks, change to desktop, long press to add to home screen. (Chrome)
 In the applications drawer, widget section, is there a widget for your browser's bookmarks that could be placed on a home screen? Less clutter that way.

Browser is CHROME  and adding other websites has not been a problem.

When you go to bookmarks, are there mobile, other, desktop etc. folders to choose from? Yes...

In the applications drawer, widget section, is there a widget for your browser's bookmarks that could be placed on a home screen?  Not sure I fully understand this. There are many widgets in that section, but none from The Old Reader.

thanks for the help.   Rich

Well, as an experiment, I tried to add Nexus7forum.com to my front page, and that didn't work either. Perhaps I am just not doing it correctly...and I have forgotten the exact procedure that I used in the past.

Would someone mind just listing what the process is to add a web site to my front page?  thanks   rich

Bookmarks in Chrome.

1) Navigate to the page that you want to Bookmark.

2) Press the "Star" in the address bar and complete the pop up to save the Bookmark

3) Tap the 3 vertical dots in the upper right corner of the Chrome browser and tap bookmarks

4) Long press on the bookmark that you wish to show on your home screen and Tap "Show on Home Screen"

5) Done

THANK YOU!   That did it.  I don't know what step I was leaving out...but...bang!!! It is there now.   

Really appreciate your help and sites like this. I can usually muddle through on my own.   regards, rich

p.s. I have saved the instructions...hope I don't have to bother you again.
