++ Myspace Codeing Help ++

So I've decided to make this thread to help all the people on Myspace with their myspace overlay codeing.

Im not the best tutorial explaner so if any pbners would like to contribute to this thread please do its here for all of us to use.

Here is what you have to do in order.



Open up your legal version of Photoshop



Open up a new document and the size should be 1000 x 800



Now start making your layout....Be creative use brushes,shape tools, attractive text, and your layer styles



Once you have your layout complete and your happy with it SAVE IT!


Example of a finished layout in Photoshop. http://img150.imageshack.us/img150/3585/layout8mw.jpg

Now open up your photoshop file in IMAGE READY.


Now your going to have to get into the Advanced part.

go to windows:Slice.

This should open up a box KEEP THIS OPEN!


Now select your SLICE TOOL : This is the tool to make your Layout into links :


With your slice tool make a box around the Image that you want to turn into a link.

Now get the URL from your myspace that you want that image to go to, and insert it into that box that I had you open earler.

to check that it worked go to FILE and preview it in INTERNET EXPLORER.



Now repeat step 8 until you get all the links on your layout working.


Now that your done go to FILE: save optimzed.

Now a folder should of appeared on your desktop called IMAGES.

now go to a host site such as photobucket or imageshack, and host every singel picture inside of that folder.


THIS IS THE MOST CONFUSING PART FOR SOME SO ILL TRY TO EXPLAIN MY BEST.

Okie now that you have all the pictures hosted you have to open up your layout im INTERNET EXPLORER again. Scroll to the bottom and you will see that there is a long set of HTML. This is the code for your layout that you just created. NOW copy this code into NOTEPAD so its easier to edit.As you can see there are parts in the code that your images that you hosted need to go in. Place the URL links from your host into the html code.


Now you have your myspace layout code rdy in notepad. SAVE IT!!!



NOW DO NOT EDIT THIS

PUT IT IN YOUR ABOUT ME SECTION

HTML Code:
<style type="text/css"> .mygen { Created using MyGen 2.5 - www.mygen.co.uk } .mygen { Background Properties } table, tr, td { background-color:transparent; border:none; border-width:0;} body { background-color:000000; } </style> <div style="width: 120px; height: 31px; position: absolute; top:0px;left:0px; background-color: 000000; border-width:1px;border-style:solid;border-color: 000000; font-family: Arial Black;"> </div> <style type="text/css"> .main{ position:absolute; left:50%; top:0px; width:990px; z-index:1; margin-left:-500px; background-color:..000000; } </style> <style>div div table tr td a.navbar, div div table tr td font {display: none;}</style> <style type="text/css"> .hidethem {visibility:hidden; display:none;} </style> <style type="text/css"> .navbar {visibility:hidden;} .content{ width:990px; float:left; padding:0px 0px 0px 0px; margin:5px 0 0 5px; border:0px solid; } body{background-color:000000;}</style>

NOW THIS PART IS SUPER TRICKY ONCE AGAIN ILL TRY TO EXPLAIN EASILY

okkieee so post your layout code in WHOD ID LIKE TO MEET section.

Now post this code below at the VERY TOP!

HTML Code:
<div class="main"> <table style="width:992px; height:1000px; cellpadding:0px; cellspacing:0px; background-color:000000;"> <tr><td valign="top"> <center> <HTML> <HEAD> </HEAD> <BODY BGCOLOR="..cf2b92" LEFTMARGIN=0 TOPMARGIN=0 MARGINWIDTH=0 MARGINHEIGHT=0> <br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>

AS YOU CAN SEE YOUR ORGINAL myspace layout code has these tags in it [html] <html> <HEAD> your going to have to delete these to make your myspace code work.



NOW insert this code at the bottom of your code.

HTML Code:
</body> </html> </center> </td></tr></table></div> <div style="position:relative; height:400px; overflow:hidden; border:0px;"><table><tr><td><table><tr><td>
I hope this helped and I hope I explained this right. If anyone would like to correct me or help with this thread please do im not a photoshop genius.

This has nothing to do with coding but it does with myspace so ill ask it here. Is there any way you can view someones profile if they have it set to private but your not their friend?

Will this same thing work for animated gif layouts? I'm guessing it will, but wanted to make sure before i finalize it.

EDIT: nevermind, heres my finished one, decided against animation. the top half is blurry, i might re do later.

Anyone know how to make the Top 8 just one single picture? Like one picture of my choice I could put in instead of having all the individual people.
