My homepage seems to have been shortened. Do I have too much on it? Is there a limit? I'll gladly remove some stuff if that's the problem.

Not really a limit, I've seen homepages that were much longer... but that is not necessarily a good thing. Keeping the information fresh on a homepage is much more important than adding to it constantly and never removing the old content. That leave your user having to weed through the old to see if there is anything new. If I were an admin, personally, I would utilize the announcement area so that the majority of my content was automated to change at the beginning of each month. I would only leave details that absolutely needed to be on the homepage in the homepage content area. Approaching the content creation this way would allow me to work on content for the page months in advance and never worry about going back to find the old content to remove. Obviously this can all be done using the start date and end date settings for the announcements. I know there are other admins who use this approach as well.

Thanks for your reply. I do update my homepage often and I probably should use your suggestion of the announcement page. However, my problem right now is that I'm missing some of the stuff I had at the bottom of my homepage. Maybe I accidentally deleted it.

If you think you might have accidentally deleted it, you can always view a previous version of the page via the backups link below the editor window for the homepage content.

Thanks for that suggestion.
