Profile 2.0 Layouts Coming Soon!

Posted on: November 11, 2008

MySpace just released it’s awesome Profile 2.0 that is FINALLY web standard compliant! Not that it really matters to many people, but it sure diddly did to me and I’m loving it! It might take some time for everybody to convert because we all tend to not like changes but once you get used to it, you cannot go back anymore! Of course, I see on Tom’s blog that many people are saying, eh, not for me, went back to Profile 1.0. I know you are tempted to do that but let me tell you, web standard compliant means you can actually do MUCH more to your layout, you can see how the css zen garden does it! Come on people, it’s time to move to web standard compliant sites (in this case Profile 2.0) and start using FireFox! Yes, I’m talking to you, IE6 users! 😀 Anyway, the good news is that all of the layouts on our site are going to be Profile 2.0 compatible soon so stay tuned for the release!

Some points:

1) Profile 2.0 does not have any contact box or network box images. Those graphics from Profile 1.0 won’t be carried over. (But the banner layouts sorta works!)

2) The way you update profile is gonna be significantly different. We don’t have an automated way for a while, so people would have to manually copy and paste codes into the MySpace Profile 2.0 editor.

3) If you had CoolChaser layout from Profile 1.0, you would have to manually delete all the codes once you convert to Profile 2.0, as they disable all CSS styles and make them to plain text. (so you will have lots of nerdy codes showing up on your About me)

4) Did I tell you that you can’t use our current codes for Profile 2.0? So, we will be offering BOTH Profile 1.0 codes and Profile 2.0 codes on our site soon 🙂

Will let you know soon~!

EDIT:
5) Also, tiny layouts won’t work anymore, but you can shrink the layouts using MySpace’s Editor (you can select the width). And any advanced CSS won’t be carried over either, so theme creators will have to rewrite the code (or add code) for it to work on 2.0. This is because all the class names are different so you need to assign the style to the appropriate class… hope this makes sense!

Update [Nov 14]:

We have a not quite fully tested version of our CoolChaser layout editor that works with Profile 2.0. If you’re brave enough, please help test it out at http://staging.coolchaser.com

Post your experiences good or bad on our forums page

Update [Nov 15]: It’s released!

Cool! Can’t wait to try it out.

,PLEASE DELIVER NOW
HOW LONG MORE

Does this mean we will still be able to create our own themes that are compatible to Profile 2.0?

I hope so, i love personalizing everything…

PLEASE NOW HP IS SLOW PASS ME LETES VERSION AT HOME ></

Hi Cowgirl, yup, pretty much all the layouts and the themes you create for 1.0 in the future will be 2.0 compatible … oops, I forgot to mention, tiny layouts wont work. And if you have some advanced CSS for 1.0, that won’t be carried over to 2.0 either. I’ll update the post…

We are still thinking if we should offer 2.0 theme creator. It’s gonna take some work so we were gonna see how popular the demand is first 🙂 So people who want 2.0 theme creator, let us know~!

Yay!

and yes, yes, yes… i want a 2.0 theme creator!

Thanks!

Great can’t wait need it today.

yepyep. i want a 2.0 theme creator!! please and thanks.

i definently want the 2.0 theme creator

YES….PLEASE GET ME THE 2.0 THEME CREATOR A.S.A.P.!!!!!!!!!

Cool, I love the new Profile 2.0, but it bothers me that I can’t use the custom layout that I made.

Hi,
the new 2.0 editor of myspace has one big negative think:

there is an autoresiz function build in, which srews up the embed video sizes and it it was just annoying not to get a solution to find the right code to disable that auto-resize function.
Whatever I tried was useless!

Perhaps you have a solution for me?
If yes let me know sending me an email back!

love to see a new 2.0 editor ,i think this site is great

so I’m confused…
will all the old themes that we’ve created in the past be able to be used in 2.0 or will they become useless (or only for 1.0)?

will u be able to convert ur layouts that u already have made that were for the 1.0 to be used on the 2.0

April and Steven, thank for the comments!

So, all the past 1.0 layouts that were created in the past will be 2.0 compatible. So you can have 2 versions, one for 1.0 and 2.0.

But the thing is it’s not gonna look exactly the same, especially if you had contact box and network box images. 2.0 doesn’t have those so it could look very bland…but you can go to the theme editor and put some advanced css that only applies to 2.0.

We are still tweaking with the codes so once we have it live, let us know of any suggestions about the way we are doing the conversion!

how cool.. i cant w8 to try it

I NEED HELP 911!

OKAY SO I CHANGED TO PROFILE 2.0

IS THERE ANYWAY I COULD PUT HIDING CODES LIKE FROM 1.0 & IF SO HOW I NEED HELP

How Do you go back to the normal one cuz i dont like this one the new profile thing

Hi Bella, you can do all those inside the MySpace’s profile 2.0 editor – you select the module you wanna show and hide, no more messy codes to do that like you used to!

Hi Akim, are you saying you wanna go back to Profile 1.0? or just wanna take out our 2.0 layout? If it’s the latter, go to this link:
