MySpace Tutorials: Removing Ads / Tags / Links from your Profile

Tired of seeing those ad tags and links on your profile? Remove 'em! Don't know how? We'll let you in on the secret. NOTE: other myspace layout designers and webmasters are going to be *FUMING* over our sharing this information... in fact, it's going to hurt our web site traffic too. But we're doing it anyway because it's high time someone did...

What are we talking about? The extra stuff that ends up in your profile. Usually found in the corners of your page. These:

         

How to Remove Layout Tags, Links & Ads from your MySpace Layout

1.  Locate your layout, comment, or whatever code (usually it's in your About Me section, but sometimes you'll find it elsewhere. It'll be where ever you put it :)

2.  Make a backup of your existing code! Highlight/select ALL of the text that's currently in the profile section you're working with, copy it, and paste it into Notepad, Word or some other text program and save it:

3.  Look for <div style=...> html tags:
The code you're looking for should be something like this:

<div style="position:absolute;left:0px;top:0px;">
<a href="http://www.msplinks.com/bunchofscrambledstuff"><img src="http://www.someotherwebsite.com/images/corner-tag.gif" border="0" alt="MySpace Layouts"/></a></div>

You may have to look pretty closely... this stuff tends to get buried in your profile code.

If you happen to care :)... DIVs are basically floating page elements (layers). A DIV layer consists of a <div...> start tag and ends with a </div> closing tag. In this case, everything in between the <div style="position:absolute;left:0px;top:0px;"> and </div> is the junk that's floating at the top left of your profile, linking to some other web site. (The "position:absolute; left:0px; top:0px;" code tells it where to float).

4.  Delete the <div...> code and save your changes:

 
5.  View your profile and the floating link box thingy should be gone! If you have others, just repeat the steps until they're all gone. If you screw something up, just grab your original code from the backup you made, paste it back into your profile, and try again until you get it right -- it may take a few times.

Now here's a disclaimer... The designers who created your layout, comment graphics, etc. deserve credit for their work, so I hope you'll consider leaving some indication of where you got the stuff you're using on your profile, but the choice is yours to make
