Hi,

I am helping a musician friend of mine with his profile and I found a cool layout on Nas' MySpace page.

I changed some things and re-did the graphics and I basically popped my Image URLS where the ones were in Nas' profile code.

Something strange is happening tho. When I try to preview the layout, the entire profile is all covered up. My images show, but all the other elements have disappeared.

I am not sure where in the CSS I put in this is being caused.

In fact I tried copying all of Nas' code into my friends profile (it goes in the Biography section) and the same thing happened. All the images cover over the profile stuff (except the main MySpace header and navigation)

How did they make the things like the contact table, friends, profile image, comments, music player etc. all show in Nas' profile? I am totally stumped!
Here is the link to Nas' profile
http://www.myspace.com/nas

I can't even save the changes to my friends profile to show you because all the links are covered up and I can't submit the changes.

Here is the code I used:

<style type="text/css">

div.header {position: absolute;top: 210px;left: 50%; margin-left: -422px; width: px; height: 0px;}

OK, Now I've got most of the layout showing, but the header is hidden and I can't bring it forward. Any ideas how to bring it forward?

The actual link to the profile is http://www.myspace.com/davesereny

Here is the new code I used (the header part is bolded):
<style type='text/css'>

form>img#googleTLogo

That's because you have html elements in your style sheet. You cannot put html markup in your style sheet. You will have to move this part and put it after your opening <body>-tag.


<div class="header"><center>
<a href="http://www.davesereny.com"><img src="http://img207.imageshack.us/img207/3153/header6ht.jpg" alt="Dave Sereny" width="846" height="318" border="0"></a></center></div>

Hi Koyama,

I did what you suggested, but when I do that it totally screws up the profile.
http://www.mysapce.com/davesereny (http://www.myspace.com/davesereny)

I'm not sure what to do. Here is the new way I put the code:

div.header {position: absolute;top: 210px;left: 50%; margin-left: -422px; width: px; height: 0px;}

<div class="header"><center>
<a href="http://www.davesereny.com"><img src="http://img207.imageshack.us/img207/3153/header6ht.jpg" alt="Dave Sereny" width="846" height="318" border="0"></a></center></div>
<a href="http://www.davesereny.com" target="_blank"<div class="masthead"><span></span></div></a>

<style type='text/css'>

I also tried moving this down within the style sheet below the HTML:

div.header {position: absolute;top: 210px;left: 50%; margin-left: -422px; width: px; height: 0px;}

What it did was put the header in the right spot, but everything in the profile is covered over with the background and I can't even submit the changes because the submit changes button is covered over.

What did I do wrong?

Style rules and body elements are two different things and should not be mixed. Style rules are always enclosed within these tags: <style type="text/css">...</style> and belong in the top of the document in the <head>...</head> portion. Look in the sticky section to find some tutorials on this.

The snippet of code that is the problem is this:



div.header {position: absolute;top: 210px;left: 50%; margin-left: -422px; width: px; height: 0px;}

<div class="header"><center>
<a href="http://www.davesereny.com"><img src="http://img207.imageshack.us/img207/3153/header6ht.jpg" alt="Dave Sereny" width="846" height="318" border="0"></a></center></div>
<a href="http://www.davesereny.com" target="_blank"<div class="masthead"><span></span></div></a>

Now the blue part are style rules while the red part are body elements. Move up the blue part where it originally came from (with the other style rules):


body {margin-top: 0;}

div.header {position: absolute;top: 210px;left: 50%; margin-left: -422px; width: px; height: 0px;}

td, table, tr, span, li, p, div, textarea, DIV {color:ffffff;}

while move the red part down at the beginning of the body:


<body bottommargin="0" leftmargin="0" rightmargin="0" topmargin="0" style="visibility: visible; display: block;" alink="#4e607b" bgcolor="#e5e5e5" link="#4e607b" vlink="#4e607b"><form><input id="bandgenre1" value="25" type="hidden"><input id="bandgenre2" value="66" type="hidden"><input id="bandgenre3" value="124" type="hidden"></form>

<div class="header"><center>
<a href="http://www.davesereny.com"><img src="http://img207.imageshack.us/img207/3153/header6ht.jpg" alt="Dave Sereny" width="846" height="318" border="0"></a></center></div>
<a href="http://www.davesereny.com" target="_blank"<div class="masthead"><span></span></div></a>

<iframe name="up_icLauncher" id="up_icLauncher" style="border: 1px none ; width: 0px; height: 0px;" src=""></iframe><div id="up_icNotifications" style="position: absolute; width: 550px; z-index: 9999; left: 30px; top: -200px;"></div>

When you get this fixed, you should try to clean your code. The validator (http://validator.w3.org/) is the most important tool for doing this.
