ClustrMaps on MySpace

ClustrMaps HTML installation instructions for MySpace users

QUICK SUMMARY (details below):

  • copy the ‘ClustrMaps HTML’ provided by us;
  • log in to your MySpace account;
  • go to Profile… Edit Profile…
  • select Interests… About me, or I’d like to meet, or any similar field, paste the ‘ClustrMaps HTML’ into the large text area, then Preview Profile and Save Changes

NOTE: MySpace may automatically change your HTML to something with ‘…msplinks.com/…’ in it. This is for their own internal tracking purposes, but it will still work. If it stops working at some point or complains (wrongly) that ClustrMaps is causing problems or is a scam or ‘phishing’ for information, you should repeat the steps below (because re-pasting the code afresh will eliminate the problem). We would appreciate it if you could kindly let the good people at MySpace.com know that they have falsely blocked ClustrMaps, and also let us know! You will be delighted to know that the ClustrMaps proven and popular policy of ‘No Spyware, No Cookies: Guaranteed’ is clearly stated HERE.

There are three techinques for adding ClustrMaps to your MySpace pages: (1) adding it to your PROFILE, (2) adding it to your BLOG, (3) adding it to your GROUP DESCRIPTION.

Technique 1 (RECOMMENDED): Add ClustrMaps to your MySpace profile


  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 “[B]: Minimalist (for MySpace and other sites needing the plainest HTML)”… this is best for Windows Live Spaces also. 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.
  4. Now you must log into in to MySpace.com normally with your email address and password.. 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. Select Profile… Edit Profile in the upper left of your MySpace page

  6. Select Interests… About me:… orI’d like to meet… or any other field for that matter… then
  7. Click in that field (text box) and paste what you earlier copied at step 3 (e.g. right-click with the mouse and select ‘Paste’)… SEE SCREEN SNAPSHOT BELOW
  8. (Optionally) click the Preview Profile Button
  9. Click the Save Changes button


Technique 2: Adding ClustrMaps to your MySpace blog


  1. Get a free ClustrMaps account and passwod by following the ‘Get one!’ link at the top of ClustrMaps.com
  2. 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/counter/action.php (use your URL as your username, and the password you have been sent, or the password you changed it to)
  3. On your Admin page, you will see several boxes containing different versions of the HTML code. In this case you should use variation “”[B] Minimalist (for those with the most restrictions):” that you should find very low down on your Admin page. 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)
  4. Now copy that HTML (you can use the two keyboard keys CTRL C keys to perform this, or right-click with the mouse and select ‘Copy’); you will then paste it into your web page later on below.
  5. Now you must log into in to MySpace.com normally with your email address and password.. Do this in a separate browser window if possible, or in the same window you are currently using if that is simpler for you.

  6. You now need to alter the ‘code’ on your page where the map is going to appear…. so…
  7. select Manage blog (from the entries in the box near the upper left)
  8. select Customize blog (in the section down on the lower left called My controls)
  9. in the section called Page Header (second main section)… select “Your Own Header HTML”
  10. click the mouse in the big empty text box near where it says “Header HTML”, and use the CTRL V keys to paste what you earlier copied at step 3, or right-click with the mouse and select ‘Paste’
  11. Click the Preview Button above the box (at the far right in the same line where it says Page Header)
  12. Click the Save button
  13. At the VERY TOPof page you’ll see a big item enitled “Would you like to use this as your look and feel?” (Click the YES button!)
  14. Near the top you should then see the message, in red, “Your Blog look and feel has been updated!”


Technique 3: Add ClustrMaps to your MySpace Group description
Quick version: Similar to technique 1: Get HTML from your free ClustrMaps account, copy and paste it into your Description with ‘Edit Group’. Now for the steps in detail:

  1. Get a free ClustrMaps account and passwod by following the ‘Get one!’ link at the top of ClustrMaps.com
  2. 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/counter/action.php (use your URL as your username, and the password you have been sent, or the password you changed it to)
  3. On your Admin page, you will see several boxes containing different versions of the HTML code. In this case you should use variation “[B] Minimalist (for those with the most restrictions):” that you should find very low down on your Admin page. 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)
  4. Now copy that HTML (you can use the two keyboard keys CTRL C keys to perform this, or right-click with the mouse and select ‘Copy’); you will then paste it into your web page later on below.
  5. Now you must log into in to MySpace.com normally with your email address and password – the one that you use to be a Group moderator! Do this in a separate browser window if possible, or in the same window you are currently using if that is simpler for you.

    You now need to alter the ‘code’ on your page where the map is going to appear…. so…

  6. Select the special ‘Edit Group’ button near the top of your MySpace Group page
  7. Select ‘Description’, i.e. click the mouse inside the big box next to where it says ‘Description’ (ignore the ‘Short Description’ section for now).  If there is stuff in there already, that’s OK, but make sure whatever you do now appears at the very end of the Description section.
  8. use the CTRL V keys to paste what you earlier copied at step 3, or right-click with the mouse and select ‘Paste’
  9. Click the Preview Button
  10. Click the Save button
