Tutorial: Adding your band logo to the top of your MySpace profile

One thing most of the MySpace pages of professional bands have in common is that they show large logos or promotional images on the top of their MySpace pages. In this tutorial I'll show you how to add your logo to your own MySpace band page.

Depending on the type of profile you have, there are two methods. The first method is for the older MySpace profile, which most bands still have. The second (and slightly easier) method is for people with the new MySpace Profile 2.0. For both methods you need to have your logo image online somewhere so you can link to it.

Oldschool MySpace profiles

Click on 'Edit Profile' in the Profile dropdown menu. Then select the 'Musician Details' tab. There click the 'Edit' link belonging to the 'Bio' field.

Edit Profile - MySpace

We start by entering the html that will show your logo at the bottom of the 'Bio' field:

<div class="logoHeader">
    <img src="URL" alt="Your bandname" title="Your bandname" />

You need to replace URL with a link to your logo.

The next step is creating some space where we can show your logo. Enter the following below the other html, with at the place of the XXX fill in the height your logo needs:

<style type="text/css">
body table {
margin-top: XXXpx;
body td table, body div table {

It's possible to tweak the margin-top value a bit to add more or less space for your logo.

Now we still need to specify where your logo should be shown. The following code will take care of that.

<style type="text/css">
div.logoHeader {
	margin-left: -475px;
	width: 950px;
	height: XXXpx;


Replace XXX with the heigth of your logo. If you want your image the be centered it's best to keep the width at 950 pixels. If you change that, you'll also have to change the margin-left value. If your logo is shown over other parts of your page, tweak the top value to get it at the right place below the MySpace banner and navigation.

This is the result:

MySpace Profile 2.0

With the new MySpace Profile 2.0 pimping your bands profile will get a lot easier. Sadly it isn't available for everyone yet. To check if it is available for you, select 'Customize Profile' from the Profile dropdown menu. If you see the next screen, you're good to go with Profile 2.0, otherwise, you'll have to follow the steps for the olschool MySpace profiles.

Customize Profile - MySpace

Profile 2.0 - MySpace

In the Profile 2.0 editor select CSS, there add the following css code:

.contentTop {
	background-image: url(URL);
	background-repeat: no-repeat;
	background-position: top left;
	padding-top: XXXpx;

Replace URL with the url to your logo and replace XXX with the height of your image. That's all!

This is the result:

I hope this tutorial helps you create a more professional looking MySpace. Keep in mind MySpace sometimes changes their html, so while the information in the tutorial is correct now, it might change in the future.

Hey Jackson,

I can't see a logo at your MySpace at all right now, so I can't what's going wrong.

Probably either you or me made a typo in the code. I have to inspect the result to see where the problem is.

what website can u go to to get that code that u have in your pics

Code works perfectly, except on tweak. I had to change the margin left to 55% to get it centered, and that was using the 950px as an image width.
Easy enough, though.


Those pre-generated codes never work right.
This worked perfectly!

This is brilliant. 100% instant success. Be sure to follow carefully the bit about making space for the logo to fit or else it overlaps other stuff. Copy your code from the biog section first into a notepad doc as a back up.

hi i was wondering if you knew why every time i click the "customize profile" tab it links me to "Edit Artist Profile >> Edit Upcoming Shows" even when i click the customize profile link in myspace's help section it still sends me to "Edit Artist Profile >> Edit Upcoming Shows"

on my personal myspace i have no problems, it sends me right to the customization screen
