Adding a Custom HTML module is a great way to personalize your Windows Live Space. Your Space will not look like anybody else’s once you put your own content in a Custom HTML module.
As I show below, you don’t even need to know html because you can design your content in Windows Live Writer and it will give you the code! This post assumes you have Windows Live Writer downloaded, and you know how to add text and images with it.
Many people, me included, make a banner (or have a friend make a banner in my case) for their Space and put it in a Custom HTML module. That is just one way to use it. I also have buttons to my groups and website in a Custom HTML module.
Would you believe that some people like to make banners for their friends? Ask around! You might have a talented friend who would love to make you a banner if you would just link to his Space in yours. My friend, Jodi, made my banner for me as a surprise!
The picture of my parrot, Rufus, is in my Space in a Custom HTML module. Think of some text or image, or a combination you can use to make your Space unique, and put it on your Space in a Custom HTML module:
Click Customize/Add Modules/ then select “Modules” as shown below. Also, make a note of the “Save” button, you will need that in a minute.
After clicking “Modules”, scroll down until you see Custom HTML, and then click “Add”.
After clicking add, click “Close Tab”, then “Save” as you saw in the image a minute ago. You will have to put your Space back in the “Edit” mode to move your Custom HTML module where you want it: Customize/Rearrange or hide modules.
Next, if you are an HTML expert, just put your code in the module and click “Publish” as shown below.
Otherwise, if you are not an HTML expert, Windows Live Writer is a great tool. You can format your text, and add images that are already hosted somewhere so you can load them in writer with the url. Once you get what you want designed in Writer, switch the view in Writer to "source" to get the code and copy it:
Then paste the code into your html module and click "Publish".
I hope this helps you to customize your Space so that it reflects your personality.
Have fun with your Windows Live Space!
