Outr ticket was marked resolved -the answer when QUESTIONED was "it's marked resolved because this is now a known issue-however your trouble ticket is a "marker" and we will REACH OUT TO YOU and let you know when the issue is resolved".
This is the code that Colin posted in another forum. It works for me...I used the 3rd code in my advanced and my homepage activity is back to normal.
