[Solved] Problem with Myspace Banner

  • # October 18, 2008 at 1:15 pm

    I have been trying to figure out why the banner won’t appear. Here is the code I’ve placed above the artist’s bio:

    <div class="masthead"><span></span><div>
    <style type="text/css">table table
    {
    margin-top:120px;
    }
    div table table, table table table
    {
    margin-top:0;
    }

    <style>
    .masthead {width: 567px; height: 102px; position: absolute; margin-left: 140px; left: 12%; top: 200px; background-image: url(http://i371.photobucket.com/albums/oo15 … ercopy.jpg);}
    </style>

    What’s wrong with this code, is something missing? I’ve got the space I defined but the image is not showing. If you need to go to the page it’s myspace.com/laundonvonkendricks

    Thank you for your help.

    I resolved my own problem. Omissions on my part. For any who viewed and have a similar problem. Here is the code. I just need to tweak the placement.

    <div class="masthead"><span></span</div>

    <style type="text/css">table table {margin-top:120px;}
    div table table, table table table {margin-top:0;}
    </style>

    <style>
    .masthead {width: 567px; height: 102px; position: absolute; margin-left: 140px; left: 12%; top: 200px; background-image: url(http://i371.photobucket.com/albums/oo15 … ercopy.jpg);}
    </style>

    Here’s part of your problem. Dump the nested tables and switch to css layout. Once you try it, you’ll never go back! :)

    Are Myspace layouts all nested tables?

    Can you switch them to css layouts?

    With myspace you cannot change the HTML code that is outputted by myspaces default profile. Which unfortunately is a nested tables mess. You CAN change this by using a "div overlay" method where you basically hide all of the default myspace crap, and redesign it. the problem with this is that you lose the ability to just fill in the myspace textarea forms to output your data. Everything will need to be manually added.

    So, unfortunately the easiest way to do it is just use the regular myspace layout and redesign from there!

    How can I retrieve my myspace pictures without losing them? I need to cancel my myspace account but I do not have back ups for the pictures that I have on there. Do you know how I can save them to my computer?
