There are many ways in which to change your MySpace profile. Once you have entered your information onto the page, you will likely want to make it as appealing as possible so that others will be drawn to look at it. You can do this in one of two ways. You can use the custom settings on the MySpace site, which will allow you to choose from a variety of options, or you can make the changes yourself by using HTML or CSS codes. In order to use these codes, you will either have to know the languages or acquire them from someone else who has used them. You can also go to other sites and look up the source code used to create them, then incorporate that code into your site.
One of the most important eye-catchers is the font. Whenever you enter text into your site, leave comments, or send text messages, you will be presented with the opportunity to make changes to the way it looks. This is typically known as your font. It is possible to change the type of font, which determines what the text actually looks like, i.e. hand writing, block-style printing, or a gothic look. The font size allows you to change how big or small the text appears, and the size of different items will need to be adjusted accordingly. For example, a heading will usually be displayed in a larger size than the text that comes underneath.
Other font attributes include bold, underline, italic, and color. If you want to capture users’ attention to a specific line or phrase, you might want to make the font larger, bold the text, and make it a different color from the rest of the text. Since people often scroll quickly through web sites, such changes will likely draw attention to that particular item and make them take note.
Changing the font attributes is relatively easy to do. Changing any or all of them will change the appearance of your text, and can give your page the desired effect. Sometimes it is necessary to incorporate a variety of changes in order to make the text look the way you want it to, but the methods for doing so are very similar.
In the default MySpace layouts, there are a number of CSS classes that are related to text. These classes sometimes change as the MySpace engineers work on the site to continually keep it updated, so it is important that you are aware that what may work today may not work tomorrow. Be sure to check often to see what changes are necessary. Also, don’t be afraid to play around with different color schemes to see what will look good for your site. Remember, you can always preview your MySpace layout before submitting it, and after it is submitted, edit it as you wish.
If you are using code, make sure you know the proper HTML or CSS to make it work. If it is entered incorrectly, the changes will not take effect. There are many places on the Internet where you can find the code, mainly on MySpace resource sites like MyPsace.org, and many people who are familiar with it.
