You Will Need
- A MySpace account
Click "Edit Profile"
Open up your MySpace page and click on the "Edit Profile" link next to your profile image.
Go to site w/ free layouts
In a separate browser window or tab, go to a website that provides free layouts and graphics that you can use to beef up your profile.
Select a layout you'd like to use and choose its associated HTML code—the text web programmers use to build webpages.
Paste HTML into "About Me"
Switch back to your MySpace profile and paste the HTML code into the "About Me" section above your "About Me" text.
Add more with same method
Use the same copy and paste method to add Flash games, animations, backgrounds, sounds, and graphics.
Add visual elements
Add visual elements to different sections, like putting a picture in "Who I'd like to meet."
Find site w/ profile editor
If you still can't create the profile you want, find a website that offers a MySpace profile editor in which you can manually design your own completely original layout.
As you make changes, preview your new layout by clicking "Preview Profile."
When you're satisfied, click "Save all Changes" in the settings. The next time someone views your profile, they'll see your stylish new layout.
