  1. […] Great, now why the hell does that work? Let’s try and break it down. […]

  2. I love all the helpful codes but how do I just remove the big top ad on my page? -thanks

  3. thank you so much for the help! it’s helped me so much! if only i could’ve found this page before using all those different codes for different things @_@

    gah, thank yo again!!

  4. you’re welcome :) keep reading.

  5. Do you know how to disable the add at the top of the page?

  6. i used yer code,
    but how come the song doesnt play?

  7. this code for most of my profile but why are a few images still showing?

  8. youre crazy, man!!! thank you!

  9. How do I get a background on my page with this code? it doesnt appear to work!!

  10. first of all, thanx 4 this code, second..why cant i put any links on my page now..?

  11. is there a CODE to remove the ad from the top of MYSPACE…and i know i know if i get caught ill get deleted….is there a code to remove the ad from the top of myspace?

  12. If you remove the banner from the top of myspace you will get your account deleted or blocked until you remove it so save yourself time and effort and just let it be , links can be put in , but you should google & find more excellent pages like this that teach you css & html . Everyone starts off from the beginning so if i can do it so can you.

    The background yoo can be put in with simple css & html , google it and learn :D it will be worth it when you teach yourself the simple code in this case for backgrounds

    thanks for an excellent page bryan wish there were more straight to the point , well written sites out there.

    I stumbled onto many amateurs who had pages of code that just didnt work properly :@

  13. hey..
    this code is great..
    do yo have any suggestions on how
    to create your profile on mypace from scratch
    afte using this code??
    thanks heaps

  14. is there a CODE to remove the ad from the top of MYSPACE…and i know i know if i get caught ill get deleted….is there a code to remove the ad from the top of myspace

  15. it works great , but when i come to edit my profile on myspace i cant even see the link where i would click edit ???

    is no one else having this problem

  16. Where does all this nifty code go if you have an Artist page? They don’t have any of the “About Me” (etc) fields we’re always being told to paste Myspace code into…

  17. how do you get you’re music player back ?

  18. ok it does a great job taking everything out of the profile, but when you get to adding your own codes to create your own page it just doesn’t work out. is there another special code we need in order to put in our codes?

  19. there is a simple fix to it if you want the add to show, but you will be left with the naviagation bar too, but it still looks fine, and this way you dont have to worry about your account being deleted because the add is there!

    simply find this part of the code and delete it

    a.text,table div font a,table div div,.navbar font,tr td font {
    visibility:hidden;
    display:none;
    height:0px !important;
    }

  20. ah, thanks mark.

  21. JAF I like how you you have the single column on your profile.

    I always wodner how myspace css worked since basically 2 scripts are doing the same thing.

  22. hey!
    i need some help.. i want to change my myspace page into a very personnal one. ive got all the ideas and thought i knew how to do it with html things but it doesnt work the right way. i used that code you gave to hide everything, but then i cant put a background image..
    to be more specific, i only want to put several images on my page that would create one whole image. (thats my (weird) way to put links where i need to put some)

    can you help me with something? maybe theres a easier way to do it?
    thank you!

  23. Agatha,
    If I was going to do the same thing as you I would do it think way. Take all the small images that you want to use and merge them into 1 image. Then that that image and make a imagemap.

    So say you was going to use 7 images. I would make 1 image out of those 7 so that way only 1 image has to load. And use an imagemap to divide it into sections. So if someone cliccs on the left it will go to 1 website. If they clicc on the right takes them to another.

    Another way you could do it is to lign up each image using stand html, but if the images are different sizes may not look clean. And then just use a A HREF tag to link the images where you would like.

  24. how do i put links so people can comment me/

  25. use: “a href” command with the right links and you will be set.

  26. Hi!
    I made a div overlay with slices for my band but now I have MAJOR problems getting the standard myspace music player for bands to show up. The idea was to position it at the bottom of the page. Could anyone help me a bit?

  27. Try this:

    td td embed, td td object{position:absolute; left:0px; top:0px; z-index: 3; width:260px; height:47px;}
    td.text embed {width:260px; height:38px;}
    td.text embed, td.text object {width:260px; height:38px;}

    I don’t have a band profile to test this on. And not sure what you current code you have on your profile either.

  28. Remember to use the style’s tags since you can’t post them on here it erased them.

  29. Well, I tried the code but the only thing that happens is that my DIV gets messed up, and still no player. Of course, there could be some odd conflict in my code.
    My e-mail is:

    stefan.wallin.1972@spray.se

    send me a message and I will send you the login info required for the goat shrine page. That way you can check out the code etc. I really need to get the player up soon. As an artist maybe you need some cool photoshop brushes and some nice expensive fonts? That could all be arranged if you help me out a tad,lol.

  30. need help. i design myspace pages for band and have come across a problem that i need help with. my hotspots are not working any more on bands myspaces when i edit them. they work but when trying to up load a new design or make text edits they quit working. but if tried on a reqular myspase then they work…..whats wrong when the same code works one place but not another…

  31. how come with the div overlay im usin it wont show what im written

  32. how do u change the color to black?

  33. wow that was a great help, but now that i have evrything hiding to add my own stuff. how do i add text?

  34. how do you hide the “about me” thing?

  35. this is GREAT. is it possible to have a background image or a solid colour?!?!

  36. i have a band profile and cannot find the about me field.
    Any ideas?

  37. Awesome! This is exactly what I needed!

    JAF (or anybody else) – Think you could share how you brought back the comments section? I’m kind of a css novice, so even after the explanation on this page I’m still not sure how to go about it.

  38. Thanks alot. I’ve been looking through all this crappy code that doesn’t work until I found this site.

  39. i put in the code and saved it, so right now all my profile is, is a background and i cant go back and edit it, the page wont load. maybe its just my computer. any idea?

  40. This is excellent! I’ve been trying to setup a business like myspace and have been hacking away all day at this! though I do ahve one question… Do you have any kind of diagram that you can post that shows in a visual the table, tr, td, table table, table table td type stuff? That way I can visually see where each thing is placed when I type in however many tables or trs and the like?

    Very good walkthrough though!

  41. Hi,

    I started doing band myspaces and I can’t figure out how to move the events around or make it so I can use them in a div overlay. Is this possible? If so, how would I go about doing that?

    My email is: manofvalor24@hotmail.com. A quick response is much appreciated.

  42. wow..thanks for posting this!
    I had fun this afternoon trying to manipulate it further…so far so good.

    1- problem..my new div overlay is not displaying correctly in explorer…only firefox..which is GREAT for me..but not so good for anyone who still uses explorer.
    anythoughts?
    jamie

  43. Geeky. That’s cool by the way. I’m glad MyMess… I mean MySpace is finally getting a bit of documentation for its messy html.

  44. okay well i want to use this code so that i can fix up my myspace however i want. but the thing is, now i dont know how to add stuff. all it does is hide it. can you help?!

  45. hey i got your layout but i cant seem to ad my user id to it so nothing connects if uou no wat i mean can u please help me :)

  46. Stop using Internet Explorer :) FireFox Rules hehehehe like “CSS RULES” :P

  47. I’m trying to replace a block of text.

    .contactTable .whitetext12{VISIBILITY:HIDDEN;}

    Your Text

    Anyone know what the problem is?

  48. I’ve been trying to put comments in my code (so that I can remember what I did later – plus it’s good practice for my other coding) but everytime I try and put comment code into the page
    e.g. /*comment here*/
    or
    e.g.
    …myspace translates the code into something else.

    Can you explain why it does this and how to get around it.

  49. hey, the code works fine at hiding the majority of stuff…but how do i go about adding stuff over it now? lol, do i add another div layer over it all using the z-index? if so, can you start me off with a snippet and where to put the code? cheers.

  50. So why is it when I try to put a link to my website on my myspace about me section the link just goes back to myspace.com? Even when I use a different target page.

  51. How can i delete everything apart from my default ???

    Pleas help :)

  52. Here is a page I am working on. I have 100% control over it. I even had my own killer menus up last week. Right now I am using it to test some chat software.

    As you can see, it is 100% clean except the banner ad at the top; I have removed it before, but I do not want my account deleted.

    Just view the source and enjoy.

  53. In your description you talk about listing all the different sections of the myspace thing so you don’t have to type the test repetitively

    I believe you relate to this bit of code:

    .contacttable, .whitetext12, .nametext, .lightbluetext8, .orangetext15, .blacktext12,.btext, .redtext, .redbtext {

    From that, the only thing I can udnerstand immediately is that the .conttactable, is the contact table section.

    Which other words relate to different sections?

    Which word relates to the about me section?

    And, just because I’ll pick the second one, say I wanted to type some text away and make it show only the, (for the example) I only want it to show the “about me” section, let’s pretend (because I have noidea) that this is the .whitetext12, part.

    Would this code be correct to show the about me section:

    .whitetext12,
    {
    display:inline;
    height: 500 !important;
    visibilty: visible;
    }

  54. CAn i hide all the stuff…but leave the player…. and have power where it is situated??? PLEASE HELP Cos Im working on a flash site…
    CHEERS!!
    Scott

  55. sorry…or have another player that its linked to??
