I'm fairly new to MySpace and trying to get a decent looking profile. I have seen various profiles with Music Players that play more than just one song, can anyone help me?

I also want to change the background and font colours as well, but not sure how. Something to do with HTML i think.

To have more than one song (upto 4 MP3s) you need to have a musician account: http://signup.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=bandjoin

Not sure if you can upgrade from a standard account...

There are numerous sites to help you layout your page. Here are a few from the top returns of google (i.e. popular):

With the first 2 you input what you want (e.g. a background image, text colour etc) and it'll output a MySpace layout for you. The others are preset layouts. Expect adverts on all of them.

Decided after messing it up to go back to my original one. Does anyone know CSS ?? I want to make certain parts hotlink when clicked to the web page.

<style type="text/css">
body {
background-color:000000;
background-image:url('http://i59.photobucket.com/albums/g296/edge06/layouts/FadedTxtBG.jpg');
background-position:top center;
background-repeat:no-repeat;
background-attachment:fixed;
}
table, tr, td {background:transparent; border:1px;}
table table table {background-color:000000;}
table table table {
border-width:2px;
border-color:ffffff;
border-style:solid;
}
table table table table {border:1px;}
input {background-color:transparent !important;}
td, span, div, input, a, table td div div font,
body div table tbody tr td font {font-family:Verdana !important;}
td, span, div, input, table td div div font,
body div table tbody tr td font {color:ffffff !important;}
.nametext, .whitetext12, .lightbluetext8, .orangetext15, .blacktext12,
.redtext, .redbtext, .blacktext10, .btext {color:FF9966 !important;}
a {color:FF9966 !important; text-decoration: underline !important; font-style: normal !important; font-weight: normal !important; text-transform: normal !important; }
a:hover {color:ffffff !important; text-decoration: underline line-through !important; font-style: normal !important; font-weight: normal !important; text-transform: normal !important; }
img {border:0px;}
table table table {width:300px;}
table table td.text table {width:auto;}

.contactTable {
width:300px; height:145px; padding:0px;
background-image:url("http://i59.photobucket.com/albums/g296/edge06/layouts/FadedTxtCONTACT.jpg");
background-attachment:scroll; background-position:center center;
background-repeat:no-repeat; background-color:transparent;}
.contactTable table, table.contactTable td { padding:0px;
border:0px; background-color:transparent; background-image:none;}
.contactTable a img {visibility:hidden; border:0px;}
.contactTable a {display:block; height:29px; width:118px;}
.contactTable .text {font-size:1px;}
.contactTable .text, .contactTable a, .contactTable img {filter:none;}
</style>
<div style="position:absolute;z-index:9;left:0px;top:0px;"><a href="http://www.purelayouts.com" target="_blank" title="myspace layouts">..</a></div><a href="" target="_blank"></a><a href="" target="_blank" title=""></a><br><br>

Just the red parts at the bottom please. Not sure something to do with - href="blah, blah blah" I think.

Also if anyone could tidy the code up a bit to remove the unwanted parts I would appreciate it too. I got rid of most of the adverts apart from the very top left is a "" hotlink and the big one in the middle I don't think you can get rid of like Pob said.

Oh an possibly increase the font size too.

To insert a link use the following
Code:
<a href="url goes here">anchor goes here</a>

e.g. <a href="http://www.digitalworldz.co.uk/">Digital World</a> would link to DW's portal page.
However, you can embed youtube videos to your myspace page....
[YOUTUBE]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r55ia8TKUFs[/YOUTUBE] looks better than a link imho.

theres a wee myspace generator code page on my arcade site that might be useful to you mate,
theres nothing much on it atm i was intending on adding my own custom profiles and a load of extra stuff but never got round to it cos i always seem to end up with a new project to work on lol
might eventually get round to updating it when i`m done with my filehost site and online casino provided i dont get any more seemingly great ideas in the meantime :)


btw if you register on my arcade you can also embed your fave games on your myspace/web page

cheers Mickie, the text on the banner is from a basic font but modded and styled by myself to get that glassy 3d look and personally i quite like how it turned out as well :)
it doesnt make much money at all but it seems to be pretty popular with the kids and gets a lot of traffic so its a keeper as far as i`m concerned.
i do have a sponsor program for webmasters to sponsor a game for a small fee and get their ad and link placed above their chosen game but its not been very successful so far :(

when i finally get my casino and filehosting sites up and running the way i want i should start to make some money from them i hope, but if not theres plenty more ideas where they came from.
just a case of getting off my ass and getting stuck in there, if you got paid for ideas i`d be a millionaire already lol
thanks for the compliment mate ;)

Nice site FEAR.

How do I get the code to embed the game onto my MySpace?
cheers mate :)
to get the game codes just register an account and once you are logged in look under the game you want and you will see a little box containing the code you need to add to your page ;)

I was registered but couldn't see where to log in. Found it now. Thanks.

Maybe you should move the log in towards the top or make it a bit more obvious.
