Upgrades!

Posted on

If you wish to add these "Toys" you have to find a place online to store the music or video file. The is the hard part. For now I am using UploadHut and it seems to work. I am still looking around for more storage choices. If any one know of a good one please leave a link in a comment. Like me, you might have to try it a few times to figure it out, but have courage, if I can do it any one can:)

To add the "Media Player Power Toy" to your Space:

   1) Sign in to your Space.

   2) Look at your web browsers address bar, add in the text : &powertoy=musicvideo to the END of the displayed URL.

   3) Click the Go button of your your web browser .

   4) When your Space page reloads, click on the "Customize" tab.

   5) In the "Modules" drop down menu look for a listing for "PowerToy: Windows Media Player". Next to it, click "Add", then click the "Save" button just like when you change theme or layout. I had to scroll down to find it.

To add the "Tweak UI Power Toy" to your Space:

   1) Sign in to your Space.

   2) Look at your web browsers address bar, add in the text : &powertoy=tweakomatic to the END of the displayed URL.

  1. I am so excited I took the suggestion you gave me on my space and finally got the media player working. I am going to play with some of the other stuff a little later but I am at work and I need to go and take a break so i will be back later. I like all the fun stuff they have now. Thanks a lot.

  2. I like that clip, awesome stuff =D LUv the dukes, hehe. I see that you’ve been tweaquing, lol…..i’m to chicken to get to nuts with it…i just changed the links font to pink to match the rest of the page,lol. Way cool tutorial =D~Have a great Day~Hugs~

  3. Hey TThanks for the comment! I hope your niece has no trouble at school this year. It’s cool to know that everyone is kinda in the same boat sometimes. Also, I am SO glad that you put those instructions here! Tell those friends of yours that they are geniuses! My songs tend to buffer a lot, but I’m sure I can figure out how to tweak it with a little more time spent on it. Again, thanks SO much for the instructions! I appreciate it!

  4. Glad you like the song T. And yeah! It WAS easy. I really like the Dukes clip you have running. But anyway, if you wanna check out the band I have playing, go to solafiderock.com and check out the song "cold heart." That song is gonna be their most famous I think.

  5. Tom.I did everything you instructed…I have the powertoys all loaded, now I do not know what uploading is and how I get that onto my space. I uploaded one of my songs and did not know what to do after that?? I know I am not a computer geek at all..

  6. hi, thanks for the info. But you know, i cant get the music playing on my space.I used uploadhut, with the direct link it gives. I wonder if i’m doing anything wrong…

  7. Thanks for sharing the info on power toys and the link to UploadHut.com! I’ve been looking for a place to upload my music to. I think for now this works for me. Thanks!

  8. You have a great site! Thanks for your tips on adding media player to the site – now just need to figure out how to add the music to it~ lol. It was nice to see pics on your site of my hometown – lived in Dover from 77 to 92 – AF Brat you see. If you have any tips for my site – would be greatly appreciated. BTW, I read some of your entries – I’m a single mom with 3 daugthers and will be a grandma in Feb.. no help from their dad and to tell you the truth, being mom and dad to them wasn’t all that bad – they are growing up just fine. Good luck with your trials I know it’s tough. Look forward to keeping up with your goings on. Take care. Michele aka Alabama Angel

  9. Hi, i love your space. Very interesting. Now i did everything you instructed, i see the windows media player, i went to upload the song to website you suggested but i can’t hear the song on my space? Am i doing something wrong? Is something wrong with my song?

  10. OK! I’ve downloaded the 3 toys – I know how to add music, well, one song at a time and that’s ok.. but how do I put pictures in my blogs other than the bottom and how can I add pics that move… lol I’m a little slow at this stuff but learnin.. ha haMichele

  11. Okay, that’s all well and good, but I don’t know what to do with them once they are there! I must really be having a blonde moment.
