ClustrMaps on Last.FM

ClustrMaps HTML installation instructions for Last.FM users

QUICK SUMMARY (details below):

  • copy the ‘ClustrMaps HTML’ provided by us;
  • log in to your Last.FM account;
  • go to Settings… Account… It’s all about you, baby!…
  • find About you, paste the ‘ClustrMaps HTML’ into the large text area, then Save Details

For convenience, we repeat steps 1-4 of the main instructions on the HTML setup page, and add more specific instructions for this case using the sub-steps shown at step 5 below.

PHASE I: Copy your ClustrMaps HTML code

1. If you used a ‘Create yours’ instant-registration-setup as provided on the home page at www.clustrmaps.com, you should already have your HTML code displayed, and you can just jump to step 3. If not, log in to your ClustrMaps ‘Admin’ page by clicking on the Admin link at the top of any ClustrMaps page, or going directly to: http://www.clustrmaps.com/admin/action.php (use your URL as your username, and the password you have been sent, or the password you changed it to)

2. On your Admin page, you will see several boxes containing different versions of the HTML code. In this case you should use variation “[D]: BBcode syntax (for BBCode / Wiki / Last.FM and other sites needing it)“. Click in the box with your mouse and select ALL of that text (you can use the two keyboard keys CTRL+A to select all of it)

3. Now copy that HTML (you can use the two keyboard keys CTRL+C to perform this, or right-click with the mouse and select ‘Copy’); you will then paste it into your web page later on below.

PHASE II: Blog-specific alterations (hosted blog)

4. Now you must log into your Last.FM account, using the sequence you would normally use, say, if you were about to change your settings or preferences or user profile information. Do this in a separate browser window if possible, or in the same window you are currently using if that is simpler for you.

5. You now need to alter the ‘code’ on your page where the map is going to appear. To do this, follow the specific "a,b,c,d,e,f,g" sequence for Last.FM as specified immediately below.

5a) Click on Settings
5b) find the tab labelled Account
5c) find the section called It’s all about you, baby!
5d) find the text box labelled About You:

Each of the steps above correpsonds to the labels ‘Step 5a, Step 5b, etc’ in the screen snapshot below (more instructions follow further below):

5e) In the text box labeled About You: that you found at step 5d, click anywhere within that box and (in addition to any other text you may wish to add), paste the HTML code [that you copied previously at main step 3 above], then…
5f) Click [Save Details] at the bottom of the page:
