Switching to Profile 2 Tutorial

Made by: Nick

After the new profile 2.0 was released a lot of people kept asking me how to switch (and some how to switch back). I thought it would be of benefit to post it here so I can link to it whenever someone asks (and incase anyone doesn't know already).

Switching to Profile 2.0


Follow these steps:

  1. Sign in to Myspace
  2. Click on "Edit Profile"
  3. Click "Try it out, you can always go back." in the small information box at the top of the page.
  4. This should bring up a page explaining what profile 2.0 has as new features. Read it if you like and then click the "Upgrade to profile 2.0" button.
  5. It then brings you to the edit screen for profile 2.0 Enjoy!

A few things you should note about doing this are:

  • All CSS that was applied to your previous profile will be lost (although Myspace say they keep it for 90 days I would back it up somewhere on your computer anyway).
  • All the rest of your information may be lost - i'd back that up somewhere too.
  • A lot of old Myspace codes won't work on the new profile 2.0 (including all our divs) - you have been warned.
  • A big plus is that it has amazing security features compaired with what profile 1.0 had to offer.

Switching back to profile 1.0


This really isn't clear when you are on the Myspace site (probably because they want more people to use profile 2.0). If you follow these steps then it shouldn't be a problem:

  1. Go to the edit profile page: http://profileedit.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=pageeditor.profile
  2. Click "Go Back" which is located in the top right of the page.
  3. A pop up will appear with two options inside:
    1. "Start from scratch"
    2. "Switch to profile 1.0"
  4. Take a guess which one to click.
  5. You will get another pop up box saying that profile 1.0 doesn't have some features that profile 2.0 has - just click "OK".
  6. That should be it. Enjoy having profile 1.0 back.
