As many of you know already, MySpace had a huge makeover and got a totally new look. They changed their logo to My|_____| (really not sure about that logo) and also released an updated Profile 3.0 which during the beta phase, people had a chance to take a look and go back to Profile 1.0 or 2.0 if they didn’t like it. Unfortunately, Profile 3.0 does not allow any custom CSS so our layouts do not work. MySpace contacted us about their customization tool that might be able to be integrated to 3rd party sites like ours but we’ve not heard any updates on that from them.
We still supported Profile 1.0 and 2.0, but MySpace recently actively converted all the inactive Profile 1.0 and Profile 2.0 into 3.0 automatically. We are not entirely sure but we think people with Profile 1.0 who logged in and had some activity were not converted though so if you still have Profile 1.0 (like our official MySpace site) you can still use our layout by pasting the code manually inside the “About me” section. All the fields in MySpace will now say “No CSS allowed” but you can still paste it in there and will work if MySpace still kept your Profile 1.0 layout.
They also changed the way how we inserted the layouts automatically into Profile 1.0 and got rid of the Profile 2.0 editor entirely from their site; therefore, our auto insert toolbar no longer works for any profiles right now. We are researching if we can get the toolbar to work at least for Profile 1.0.
To people who still have the precious Profile 1.0, we think it’s only a matter of time MySpace converts all the profiles to Profile 3.0, so might as well enjoy your own custom made layouts while it lasts! 🙂
