I start using webtrees now really since 3 month. I am now looking to edit the home page block to add some welcome and explanation words.
I can edit all other by clicking on the tools top left of each block but for the home page I found nothing. Same is with the "News".
Regards,

Manfred

After logging in, you may note at the top left or right of the Home page "My Pages." Hovering over "My Pages" will offer the option to "Customize this page."

thomas52, thans , but its not what I am looking for.

See attached picture, at all blocks line "on this day" or "Statistics" or "Upcoming" beside is a tool icon where I can click on and configure the block.

Now looking to the top block, here called "Stammbaum..." or bottom down the "News" block , there is no icon with tools to click on and configure ?

Where can I modify these blocks called "Home page"(here "Stammbaum") or there "News" block ?

As stated earlier, go to "Customize This Page." You will see a screen that allows you to "Change the Home page blocks." Select an "Available block," i.e. News or HTML, and use the left or right arrow to add that block to the Main or Right section. Then modify the block as you would normally. You must add a block before you can configure it. See my home page www.adkins.ws for some examples. If you right-click on a block, you can "View page source" for specifics.

Thanks Thomas,

but how to customise or moving blocks around was clear.
I found out that I was trying g to modify "Home "page" block but I should use the "html" block to do what I like to do.
Thanks for you response which guided me to the correct way.
Looking to your page I am years away from such collection and also page setup !
Looks great !
