How to Fix Layout Not Showing Up Correctly in 2.0


I'm trying to add a 2.0 layout to my Myspace but the text colors or border colors are wrong? It seems to be combining 2 layouts together? The 2.0 layout is messed up and I can't figure out why? I'm trying to remove an old 2.0 layout code to use a layout from myspace but I keep seeing part of both layouts?


If your 2.0 layout code isn't showing up correctly or you can't get rid of a background or a layout sites ad on your profile, most likely you had a layout already set in your profile or you customized your myspace profile through myspaces 2.0 editor and it is trying to read both sets of code. Sometimes the problem is left over code in other sections of your profile.

First, remove the 2.0 layout code you want to use(save it somewhere so you can put it back into your profile when you are done cleaning it out) and go back through myspace making sure NO theme is chosen through the Myspace 2.0 editor and check to see that you haven't changed any text colors or background/border colors through myspaces 2.0 editor. Once all these areas are cleared, then re-add the code you wanted to use and see if it works. If you are trying to remove a code so that you can use one of myspace's provided themes, then remove all the code the same way and go back and choose one of their themes and try to save it.

Here are more specific directions to clear out all code from your profile.

In Myspace 2.0:

  1. To clear out your profile of all layout editing you may have done, go to and login.
  2. First remove the code you are trying to use and save it somewhere so you can get it back when you are done cleaning up your profile.
  3. Make sure you have upgraded to Myspace 2.0 (click here for directions to upgrade).
  4. Make sure the layout code you want to use is specifically for 2.0. The old codes people used are only for 1.0 and do not work in Myspace 2.0.
  5. Click PROFILE In the top menu and click EDIT PROFILE in the drop down menu.
  6. Look through all your sections (About Me, Who I'd like to Meet, General, etc.) and make sure you did not add any code to them that needs to be cleared. Don't accidentally erase your text, but make sure there are no codes from other websites that might be interfering with the layout code you are currently trying to use.
  7. Next go to CUSTOMIZE PROFILE in the top right corner.
  8. Click on SELECT THEME in the menu and make sure NO THEME is selected.
  9. Then click on CHANGE LAYOUT (which refers to the layout of the page, as in which boxes go where) and make sure the layout style of your layout is the same style as the one for the layout code you are planning to use. Look at the preview on the layout site and make sure you are choosing the same one so there aren't any problems making the new layout code work right.
  10. Next click on ADVANCED EDIT. Make sure nothing is set in advanced edit. Go through each option and clear them out.
  11. Once you've checked every section for left over code and cleared all changes in the 2.0 Editor (Customize Profile Section), check your profile and see if its completely back to the plain default profile so you can be sure its cleared of everything.
  12. Then go back to Customize Profile and put the code you are trying to use back into your CSS box and click Preview or Publish to see if that worked. If it didn't then it may be that something is wrong with the code you are adding. Alert the person or company that made the code so they can fix it for you.
  13. Also remember that if you are previewing the layout to see if it works, the preview is often out of whack. Sometimes it doesn't work at all and we have to re-enter code 5 times to get it to show correctly and sometimes we have to just hit Publish and view our Profile to see changes when the preview isn't working right.
  14. If none of this worked, try logging out and logging back in. Sometimes that helps.
