NO! the question is how do you edit the MAIN listserv page where the lists are populated not the main page of a specific list. 

for example




i think we all know how to edit a page like that.

IS a list specific page.... (DUH!)

It IS the "main" page! (DUH!)

It is called the "General list information page" ... (DUH!) 

It is FULLY customizable! You don't like the pretty blue
and beige color scheme? Change it! You don't like the
Python Goat? Delete it! (DUH!) 

You customize it for your own list through admin at: 
You type in or copy & paste your code in the box, and save it;
this changes the look of the page, if you want the page
to follow the look and feel of your site, if you want to add
a background, other links, buttons, scripts, add banners, 
change colors, add a pic of your girl friend, or whatever! 
you do that here!  
Note that any tag <MM-etc> is a Mailman tag, and you
may or may not wish to leave specific tags there. Just use
caution, maintain chronological backups of your changes
in case you screw anything up.. 

Do I need to give you a guided tour? 
Now go to your list admin
and L@@K on the right side, you see:
"Other Administrative Activities" under there is a link:
"Edit the HTML for the public list pages " Click it! Then click this link: 
"General list information page " Now, edit anything your little
heart desires! Then click [ Submit Changes ] .... 

Do you understand what I'm sayin'? 

Now, I need a drink... No charge for the guided tour.. ;-)
