Thanks for the workaround suggestions guys... not quite what I'm looking for. I'd much rather have a page design that fits with the software standard that keeps everything on one page: Especially with a "settings" page and especially with a feature that allows the loading of settings from the cloud. The developers have incorpaorated the facility for the important reason of user control of privacy.
As workarounds go, the only setting I really need is "region" (so that inappropriate regional links dont come first in searches) and it's easier to change the region in "settings" than it is to scroll down and load my cloud settings.
The reason I posted my "want" is so that the developers might consider bringing the page in line with international software standards
