Before you could choose not just colour but page layout. Page layout from Narrow to wide layout. Now that option is no longer available and a new option of Move News on Top or Move News Down is what is now visible.
This does very little of course beyond what it says. That is to move one module that being the News module up or down. Another notable change is the removal of clutter normally associated with the side nav bar when you sign in. But when you sign out all of yahoo available sites and their respective icons appear on the left nav.
I wonder when this change took place?
