Hi Quan,

The changing of the home.dm to yourhome.dm was something I already did.
It is on my yourhome.dm that I have having my problem, off that page I
would like to link to the browse by date classifier that I have created
in the collection. I just don't know how to create the link on the
page, I could copy the whole long string that appears on other pages of
the collection but I was hoping there would be a cleaner nicer way to
put this type of link on my home page.
