Some background information about what happens when you attach a file:
This forum software only allows certain kinds of attachments. I need to give it a list of both filename extensions (like .mp3, .png, .gif, .jpg) and MIME types (like audio/mp3, image/jpeg). If a file you upload does not have both an extension that is whitelisted and a MIME type that is allowed, attaching it will fail with the error message you saw.
The strange thing is that your file in particular, an MP3 file, should have been accepted.

Thanks, Rainer, for your reply. I thought it was easy, too, but it did not work. Neither when I hit "Browse" and so got my file from my computer as "D:\Music.mp3" into the "Attachment" line, nor when I tried to copy the file "Music.mp3" directly in to that line (which resulted in an empty line only). The file size is 320 kB.
Others, who said had done the same had succeeded. Why didn't I, am I too daft?
The message I get when I try the Preview is:
"Your post contained errors: This type of attachment is not allowed." Why so?

OK, so it's a forum configuration problem, not a maximum size problem. I need to try it myself (didn't try it immediately because I am such a law-abiding citizen that I don't have any mp3 files lying around).

I thought that should work by simply hitting the "browse..." button next to "Attachment"... since there are some posts with MP3 attachments, it does not seem to be entirely impossible. Maybe the size limit is set too low. How big was your file, and what was the error message?

Subject: mp3 files
When starting a new thread of music search, e.g. in the Melody Forum, how can I add an mp3-file as an attachment to my query?

How to insert music:

Add a bit of sheet music, along with a MIDI file, simply by entering note names in Lilypond syntax between the [L] and [/L] tags.
For example, you can try what happens if you enter: [l]g'4 g'4 d''4 d''4 e''4 e''4 d''2[/l] (use the Preview function if you don't actually want to post this).
You can create these lists of note names by clicking on piano keys here.

How to post an audio recording:

If you just want to sing, whistle, or play a melody so that other forum visitors can hear it, follow these steps:

  1. Record your audio here.
  2. You should notice a 32-character hash code, something like: 2a40281c5001c5a7d8c9f57fcdeccfaf
  3. copy this hash code and paste it into a forum post, enclosed in the audio tags, for example: [audio]2a40281c5001c5a7d8c9f57fcdeccfaf[/audio]

How to mark a thread as solved:

If the original question in a thread is solved, please mark it as solved using the "solved" icon (or by just typing [solved] into your post). This makes life easier for people who are willing to identify melodies, since unsolved problems are easier to spot that way. If a problem turns out to not be solved after all, just write [/solved] in a new post, and the thread will be labeled accordingly.
