    Stupid question time:
    I was wondering, how do you sign up as a 'band' on myspace?
    How do you get a music player?
    I just had a quick go, and it created a personal profile, but it wasnt a musician page and even tho the music player was selected, the player wouldnt appear or show any kind of uploading mechanism when I viewed my profile?

    I know Im getting on, but damn, MS makes me feel OLD.
    I know f all about myspace coding.

    Can someone please help?

    :wave:

    When u go to sign up, look on the right hand side. It will have different options for you.

    I made the same mistake myself a while back.

    just sign up to myspace music, i had this problem aswell, you have to make sure that when you make and account you make sure it is a music one and your player n all that will be there.

    when it comes to adding photos n stuff you need to convert it to HTML, open a photobucket account and this will do it for ya, then add it to your edit account bits.

    find one of the sites and then customise your profile.

    hahah fortune! :D ..

    I've signed up, but tried to 'edit my profile' like you do on a personal page and it takes me straight to artist profile instead with no obvious way to enter custom layout code?
    argh..

    Anyone done theirs succesfully?

    You have to place all HTML etc in your band details section i think (or one of them).

    When u go on the sites to get all your codes etc it will tell u where to put them.

    Facebook and reverbnation have a partnership of some sort. If you have either you should look into it.
