|V. Testing Your Profile. Once you have entered the
codes, you will want to test your changes to make sure they work
properly. First, save the changes by pressing the "Save All
Changes" button at the top of the page.
Note: You might think that you would just press the "Preview
Profile" button to view the changes, but in our experience, this
doesn't work very well. The most reliable method of viewing the
changes is to navigate back to your profile. Be sure to give it
plenty of time to load. It sometimes takes extra time for all
parts of your Profile to fully load after you have made changes.
|VII. Trouble Shooting. It sometimes happens that you
will enter theacode into your Profile and nothing seems to
happen or you get the wrong effect. There are several possible
causes for this situation:
Problems. Some browsers such as Firefox, Opera and Netscape
don't support cursors. At this point, only Internet Explorer
supports cursors. As a result, if you attempt to view your web
page or profile with anything other than Internet Explorer, no
cursor will be displayed.
2. Incomplete Or Damaged Code.
These codes consist of complex
instructions to the browser. If the codes are changed in any
manner they may not work properly. For example, if you accidentally
insert text into them or delete part of code, they may not work
3. MySpace Failure.
Sometimes MySpace's software will get confused
and will not update your profile even when it say it has. As a result,
the codes you have entered won't have an effect. You can test to see if
this is happening by changing some of the text in the section of the
profile that you are entering the codes. If the text doesn't change when
you view your profile, you can be sure that your code is not being
entered into your profile. The solution is log off of MySpace and at the
same time close all copies of your browser. When you log back in, the
problem should go away.
4. Outside MySpace. Our cursors have
been tested extensively on MySpace and other social networking
sites. These cursors will work outside MySpace, but, depending
on circumstances, you may encounter problems. To deal with
all the possible problems, would require a complete course on
web page building, but there are a few tips. First, since style
sheets can interfere with each other, make sure that there are
no other cursor defined in your web page's code. Second, if you
have access to HTML editor such as Front Page or Dream Weaver,
you can test the cursor and make adjustments as necessary.
Finally, if necessary, you can download the cursor itself and
then post it on our web site. If you do this, please post a link
back to our site so that other people can find our products.
The Cursors use something
called "Cascading Style Sheets" (CSS) to work.
CSS works along with HTML to control the way a
web page appears. One of the characteristics of Style Sheets, is
that one set of style sheets can override
other style sheets. If the web page
you are working with has another Style
Sheet embedded in it, that Style Sheet
could override the Chromuluna Codes and cause the wrong
cursor to be displayed.
5. Bad Links.
At Chromaluna, we
make every effort to make sure our codes link back to the proper images.
We also make sure the images are not moved. and are maintained the
images in the same place. Other web sites are not so careful and we have
seen many comments on graphics on MySpace that have broken links and do
not display. Nevertheless, it possible that one of link could get
accidentally broken. If that happens, the simplest method of the solving
the problem is to pick a different code. Also, please let us know if you
find a broken link:
