The Page I'm On Isn't Displaying Properly.

  • If BHG.com pages do not display correctly for you, we recommend that you first close your browser, delete your browser cache files and try the page again. If that doesn't work, please check to make sure that you have a current version of your web browser. For most browsers, you can go the vendor's web site (ie: Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome) and download the most recent version.
  • BHG.com will support the following browsers or platforms:

I’m Having Trouble Printing or Saving a Page.

  • PRINTING: Most pages on BHG.com have a 'Print This' button which will take you to a printer-friendly page. If that is not available, you can print the page simply by pressing the 'Print' button on your browser or choosing 'Print' from the 'File' menu.
  • SAVING: If you wish to save a page for future viewing, we recommend that you either use the 'Email This' function to email the story to yourself or add the page to your Bookmarks or Favorites.

I'm Having Trouble Using The Arrange-A-Room Tool.

  • In order to solve your issue, please try removing & re-installing or upgrading Flash by clicking here.
  • Sometimes it will not work on a resolution of 800x600 or below. Try using a resolution of 1024x768 or higher. To change your resolution, right click on your desktop and then left click on Properties. In the box that comes up click the "Settings" tab. In the screen resolution box there is a slider, move the slider so that it says 1024x768 or higher, and click "OK".

I'm Having Trouble With Flash, RealPlayer, or Windows Media Player.

  • Flash, RealPlayer and Windows Media Player are called plug-ins. Plug-ins are software programs that expand your Web browser's functions. On BHG.com, for example, we may use Flash animations. In order to view these mini-movies, you must have the Flash Player plug-in. Other plug-ins allow you to listen to sound files, zoom in on images, and take advantage of other special features.
  • Any time we include a file that requires a plug-in, we warn you in advance and tell you how to obtain the plug-in software. In most cases, plug-ins are available for free if you are willing to download them from the maker. Be sure to follow the instructions carefully to make certain that your computer is compatible with any plug-ins you download.
  • You can download plug-ins at these locations:

Hello. I just wanted to let you know that, for three days now, when I try to scroll through the email linked slideshow, the right arrow is not working. So, the only way to view anything is to look at all and pick and choose. Please have your developers do a better job. Thank you. Sheila Kerrskerr@frontiernet.net

Why does your website print 6 pages for one recipe?

I'm having the same problem locating my saved pages! If anyone knows how to get back to my saved library, I'd really appreciate the help.

I'm having the same issue, has someone replied to the "saved recipe" question?
March 14, 2019
After years of being a member of BHG online, I now cannot locate my favorites or what was once a recipe box. Are we as BHG subscribers no longer able to save recipes? It seems the only actions I am able to take include subscribing to magazines, selecting to receive BHG daily and weekly emails and subscribing to other Meredith sites. I would appreciate direction. Thanks so much.
