My Background Not Showing!
Posted April 10, 2007on:
WHY YES, BUT YET ANOTHER UPDATE (3.13.08):MySpace made some subtle but annoying change that is affecting band layouts and some blog layouts. I’ve written another blog about it so please go read it now!
Try not ask a question here, most of the time I can’t answer you so the best thing is to go to our forum- you are almost guaranteed 100% that you will get an answer there (thanks Heathaaa!).
OLD ENTRY STARTS HERE:
As I blogged in the last post, people seem to be pretty happy about their layouts. Thanks for all the luv and we luv all of ya guys too! xoxoxo!
Anyways, among all the comments we’ve been receiving, we seem to get comments here and there saying “I changed my layout but it’s not showing” or simply “my background is not showing.”
Back to the topic, I actually had the same shocking experience that when I logged in, the layout was gone.
… Actually, the layout was not gone, I was just looking at my MySpace user homepage.
This is how the user homepage look (the page that you land after you login) vs your profile page look (the page that all your friends see)
Their contents are pretty much different but doesn’t it somehow give you the illusion that it could be the same page? Especially because of the user photo being exactly at the same position.
I know I know, if you look carefully, they are totally different pages. But I read somewhere that people don’t really pay much attention to the content when viewing a website but rather “glance.” So I think it’s more the overall silhouette or chunk of blocks that people notice before noticing the content.
Also, on the user home, I had difficulty finding the link to view my profile. Really, can someone tell me how to view my profile except from that small link under my avatar??
So users who might have thought that your layout or background has not been updated, check again and see if you are not looking at your homepage! :)
There is also another case that users might have thought their backgrounds were not updated. Since that little link “View My: (return line) Profile” is hard to find, you might have ended up here:
DO NOT click that button unless you know what you are doing :D Just kidding, but I can tell you one thing, the button is absolutely useless.
Hope this helps!
