Clustrmaps on MSN Spaces

ClustrMaps HTML installation instructions for MSN Spaces users

(Note for newer Windows Live Spaces see instructions here).

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

PHASE I: Copy your ClustrMaps HTML code

1. 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 CODE OPTION [B] that we provide. 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 blog hosting account, using the sequence you would normally use, say, if you were about to change your blog 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 this type of blog as specified immediately below:
