MySpace is popular, but not everyone likes the look of the profile. Today I found a guy who came up with a clever hack that will hide ads, clean up white space, and remove scroll bars, and so on.
We Say: Of course, this is not a hack like the guy who made himself the most popular person on MySpace, but it’s good clean formatting fun.
The other night, I couldn’t sleep (probably too much coffee), so I decided to tweak out my profile on MySpace. The goal was to completely hide everything on MySpace (including the ads), and replace it with something much cooler. This, of course, did not come easy. Here are a few of the obstacles I had to overcome:
- Hiding the iFrame which contains the ads (any CSS to hide iFrames is blocked)
- Positioning the new site at the very top of the page.
- Getting rid of the horizontal scroll bar after the CSS was applied.
- Hide existing comments so there isn’t whitespace at the bottom of the page.
Here is the CSS that needs to be copy and pasted into the “About Me” section of your MySpace profile. In the CSS the margin-left on .main, and .main table is half of the total width, and is a negative integer. For instance, if your width was 500px, margin-left would be -250px.
Here is the HTML that needs to be copy and pasted into the “I’d Like To Meet” section of your MySpace profile. You can replace the “INSERT YOUR SITE HERE” with your own HTML. Keep in mind that you CANNOT use id= on your divs because MySpace blocks them. Use class= instead. [Source: The Big Noob.com]
