A bland MySpace page is EM-BAR-RAS-SING—here's how to make a totally sweet profile.
You will need
- A MySpace account
Step 1 Click "Edit Profile" Open up your MySpace page and click on the “Edit Profile” link next to your profile image.
Step 2 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.
Step 3 Select layout Select a layout you’d like to use and choose its associated HTML code—the text web programmers use to build webpages.
To copy the code, select all of it then use Control C on a PC or Command C on a Mac.
Step 4 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.
To paste the code, use Control V on a PC or Command V on a Mac.
Step 5 Add more with same method Use the same copy and paste method to add Flash games, animations, backgrounds, sounds, and graphics.
If you’re browsing around MySpace and fall in love with someone else’s layout, just visit your favorite MySpace extras website and use a “layout snatcher” to get the exact same look.
Step 6 Add visual elements Add visual elements to different sections, like putting a picture in “Who I’d like to meet.”
Pictures can be added by creating a link to an existing image on the web. You can find samples at any MySpace support site.
Step 7 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.
Step 8 Preview profile As you make changes, preview your new layout by clicking “Preview Profile.”
Step 9 Save changes 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.
