MySpace Codes Part 1
There are many ways to customize your MySpace.com profile and the pages that are included in it. In addition to being able to add files, music, video, and graphics, it is also possible to customize how people are able to view your site. Here, you can change the way borders look, choose a wide variety of colors, and change the fonts of each page.
Because there are many tools available to you on the MySpace.com site, and also many others you can download and use from other locations, like www.mypsace.org or www.popdarts.com, it is not necessary for you to know the actual HTML code and other languages involved in creating a site. In fact, a MySpace.com profile is actually a combination of HTML, (hyper text markup language), and cascading style sheet, (CSS) rules. Because these codes have already been incorporated into the templates and layouts provided for you, you do not have to know or understand how these languages work. This makes creating a profile and subsequent pages quick and easy.
Color is one of the most important elements of a web page. Eye-catching colors and themes will often attract the attention of those browsing various profiles, and can make a difference on how many times your site is actually viewed. It is easy to change the color of your background and tables, and then to change the color of the text in them.
Before proceeding, however, you should have a backup copy of any text you will alter, just in case something goes wrong and you lose it. There is a code file used when making color changes to your site. You will create this file and name it MySpaceCodeColor.html. This is done in a text editor such as Notepad, Wordpad, or the text editor of your choice. You can give the file a different file name, but make sure it is one you will recognize as your color file. There are various color codes you will type into this file. These are HTML and CSS codes that you can download off the Internet, or acquire from other MySpace.com users who know them. These codes will designate how your page looks.
There are specific codes for changing the background color, the color of your tables, and the color of the text in the tables and on the page. You can also change the color of the graphics that appear on the page, but this requires a different set of codes specific to graphics.
In order to change the color of an entire table, it is necessary to specify code for each row in the table. Again, it is necessary to either know the code or to obtain it from someone who does.
It is also possible to change the colors, fonts, and borders on the MySpace.com site, but using the above described method will give you complete control over what happens to the information on your site and how it is presented to viewers. This is because you are not limited to already existing layouts and options, and are able design the site you want.
