Myspace backgrounds HOWTO #2 - Advanced Guide

See our tileable backgrounds or See our desktop backgrounds or myspace tutorial #1

This howto explains how to use a fixed background on your Myspace profile and how to manually define your profile's colors.

If you read this, I assume you have already read www.backgroundsarchive.com/myspace. If not, go there first, as it explains basic actions you should take in order to change your Myspace profile.

In our last tutorial we explained how you can upload a tileable background to Imageshack and how to enter the right code to your Myspace profile. However, for your profile to look more like www.myspace.com/backgroundsarchive, with seperately colored tables and text, you will have to use more advanced code.

Below you find the required code in blue, with in red an explanation of each part. If you do not know how to enter the code, go here. If you have a question left about how to change your profile, feel free to send us an email or message user Serhat or Madelon.

When copying the code, do not copy the words in red! Do however change the values that are written in bold.
