Ever thought you couldn't use Myspace layouts and backgrounds just because it says MYSPACE?

"Hey I just wanted to share with yall' that myspace layouts and backgrounds work for yola sites! Just look up myspace backgrounds or layouts and copy the html on the site them put it on your site and waa llaahh! There you have a cool looking background on your site! warning: this does not cover your banner though."

Website that contains layouts and backgrounds:

Hey that is nice of you to pass that along LauraMay...

I need to caution everyone though that the free Myspace background and style generators that are so easily accessible have in fact been known to break pages very badly to the point of no return.

You see, 10 months ago I dabbled in the wonderful world of Myspace generators and was going fine until one day I placed an unsuspecting JavaScript on my index page and Pow, Zing, Right in the kisser. I had my ENTIRE index page of Honey Bear Playhomes wiped clean in one second and nearly lost my entire site as it froze the ability to edit my site or do any updates for nearly 2 weeks until I figured out how to fix it. You can imaging how frustrated I was and promised myself never to use them or endorse them to anyone. That is why I never shared them here in the forums and you all know me to share nearly everything that I use or find right??? So, there must be a reason Hmmm

I must caution you or anyone else that with these generators their might come a day 3 months from now that like I you will insert a seemingly safe JavaScript for a slideshow, banner or god knows what and it will say "Hey I don't like you code from Myspace and there is not room in here for the both of us". Then the little gunfight happens and the looser is you and your index page or entire site.

The generators that say "Myspace generators" are just that "Myspace generators" and designed to work with their system flawlessly. They are however not designed for YOLA and for the mere fact that some work a person might find them self thinking all are safe when they are not. Just like you can get a bad code out in the land of the web you will find yourself in the same situation if you choose to use a generator designed for another purpose.

Simply put and with that said... Be safe and really think to yourself is it worth it for something that you can easily do by other means?

P.S. It happened to me 3 times with three different codes so it is not a one time only thing.

Happy site building
Ed

Oh and I am sure that Monique can back me up here as I think I cried on her shoulder from the other side of the globe when that happened...
