How do I alter my default Navigation Page?

+10 votes
I set my Home page into WikiTree as "My Profile", but it will not stay that way.  I always get the Navigation Page.  It's the same thing with the other selections you can make i.e. the WikiTree Home page.  It will not "take", and I just keep getting the Navigation Page.

Is there something else I should be doing?

Did you click the Save Settings button at the bottom?

Actually, I see that it does not work for me either.

Upon entering the settings page, anything chosen under the Starting Page drop-down menu does not take effect when you Save Settings.
Well, at least it's not just me! (Because yes, I do indeed click on 'SAVE').

So what happens now?
I tagged the question in hopes of catching the attention of some of the tech guys to investigate.
Hi Ros and Michael,

That's odd. This is working for me.

If you make other changes in the settings, do they save?

What systems and web browsers are you using?

Ok.  Chris, I think it is working? However, you have to log out and then log back in to see the changes.

1. Go to Settings and make the changes on the Start Page from Drop Down Menu.

2. Click Save Changes.

3. Log out and Log Back in.  

The first page you see is the one you selected. However, if you choose Nav Page Home from the My Wikitree Drop Down.  You do not go to the default page that you selected.

This is how it works on Both Chrome and Safari, current editions on OS 10.10.5
I rarely log out and I was selecting the Nav Page Home from the drop down.  But the setting only says when you first log in.
I rarely log out, either.  But I did to see if that worked - and it does!  Maybe the wording could be altered to say that you won't see the changes until you logout and log back in again?  Just a thought.


Thanks for your help on this.
