View Full Version : Javascript with Myspace

Mar 29th, 2005, 01:12 AM
There are a crap load of awesome scripts I've found, and I'd like to use some of them with myspace, but I can't get it to work. say on a Status Bar Script like this one: http://kitprice.net/scripts/status_bar_messages/multi_line_teletype_status_bar_message/multi_line_teletype_status_bar_message.htm

I copy the code how they say starting with < script language="JavaScript" > and ending with < / script>, but only the code shows up on my profile and it doesn't do anything.

Does anyone have experience with scripts on MySpace? I've seen a few profiles with status bar scripts that work so it must be something I'm doing wrong.

this is the code I copied & pasted.....

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE = "JavaScript">
var curmes = 0
var a = 0
var counter = 0
var message = new Array()

// The following are the lines to change. Remove this line when done.
message[0] = "This is the first line."
message[1] = "You can add what you like in here."
message[2] = "Tell people about what you do, "
message[3] = "how you do it, and why you do it."
message[4] = "Then offer them something to bring them back"
message[5] = "again and again."
message[6] = "or to advise on site updates."
message[7] = "or future attractions"
message[8] = "Anything you want really"
message[9] = "Now I'm getting bored!"
message[10] = "So I'll stop!"

var temp = ""
function scrollit()
a = a + 1
window.status = message[curmes].substring(0, a)
if(a == message[curmes].length + 10) // CHANGE 10 HERE IF REQUIRED
curmes = curmes + 1
a = 0
if(curmes > 10) // CHANGE 10 HERE IF REQUIRED
curmes = 0
counter = setTimeout("scrollit()", 80) // 80 IS SCROLL SPEED, HIGHERIS SLOWER, LOWER IS FASTER
function check()
if(a <= message[curmes].length)
if(message[curmes].substring(a, a + 1) == "")
a = a + 1
// -->

And what shows up is this... (screen shot)

Myspace clearly states that it only allows HTML/CSS scripts. It has its own Javascripting with the variables you place in it.
