How do I put a link into myspace comments? or put a URL link anywhere?

31 Comments

MYSPACE CHANGED THEIR CODES SO THAT LINKS NOW GO THROUGH THEIR SITE. This is supposed to protect you from spammers or other malicious individuals, but I think it just reduces your accountability on the internet. People should be able to see the link they are clicking on….
That being said..

There are no stupid questions, only stupid people. I can see how people come about my blog page, by what searches. There has been a number which came about by the search “how do I put URL into myspace?” which I interpret as people wanting to know how to put in a link on a myspace comment or any other site.

IF YOU WANT TO COPY AND PASTE THE CODE, CLICK THIS LINK

BELOW IS A VISUAL EXAMPLE ONLY. WordPress messes up the quotes and this will not work unless you replace the quotes.

<a href=”http://orlickenterprise.com”>my site</a>
will give us: my site

If you want the link to open in a New Window – this is nice, you probably do…
<a href=”http://WEBSITE URL” target=”_blank”>TEXT TO DISPLAY</a>
Which will yield:
my other site

you can use that code on most social networking sites (myspace, not facebook). its html.

A trick I have been doing is that all the code I frequently use to write comments on profiles and blogs I put in a notepad file on my desktop for easy access. In that file, I have some numbers I have to enter frequently like some long PIN numbers and also the code for inserting a picture and the code for linking.
It is code, and it is fickle. You won’t leave room for mistakes if you cut and paste from your notepad file. And its quick!

How do I insert a video into myspace? as a comment?

I thought I would never do this. I was going to abandon it. This has been on my mind though. I have good information that I come across, that should be out there. I think this might work. this might just work….

My job lately has been creating myspace profiles, and maintaining them. someone wanted to comment a video in one of our profiles, but didnt know how. heres how(assuming you have a video)::
How do I insert a video into myspace?

1-upload it into a site like youtube…
2-view the video
C-on that page, there should be a box that says EMBED
D-click once on the area next to it , then copy it (right click, copy or CTL C)
f-paste this info into the section where would normally write a comment.

sites that host your video will almost always have a way to insert your video into wherever you want it to go. they want you to spread it too.:
If you find that there is some writing above or below your video which says: width=”300″ height=”150″
you will have to go into the code itself and do a little big of operating(don’t worry, its very easy) -> all you have to do is edit your comment and take out the code that looks like this ——-<object width=”300″ height=”150″>
——- then repost.

now, also, for making profiles. If you dont pimp your profile, you are nobody. people wont respect you in the community. Myspace is getting these great video and picture slideshows – but you can only take in videos which are in the myspace system – not from other sources like youtube. Kudos anyhow for that.
For making cool backgrounds, and your boxes transparent or moderately opaque, here are some tools, I made today.
They are all clean now. if you do a search for them, they will always try to enter in their own ads into your myspace page. dont be violated. I havent sold out yet – so here is some very clean code for pimping your myspace. Be Safe.

For: transparent boxes – background image
<STYLE>
td, table, tr, span, li, p, div, textarea, DIV
{
background-color: transparent;
}
body
{
background-image: url(http://XXXXXXXXXX);
background-repeat: repeat;
}
</STYLE>

opaque boxes and a background image>>>>
<style type=”text/css”>
body {
background: url(http://XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX);
}
</style>
<style type=”text/css”>
table, td, textarea, a, body, input{background-color:transparent;border:none;border-width:0}
table table table {border:1px double; border-color: 000000; padding:1; background-color:FFFFFF; filter:alpha(opacity=90); -moz-opacity:0.9; opacity:0.9; -khtml-opacity:0.9;}
table table{border:0px}
table table table table{border:0px}
</style>
