Hi Felix,
sorry about the confusion.
What happened was: I changed the way you can enter stuff. Either you can enter an entire Lilypond file, without the server messing with it, or you can use the provided grid, and a Lilypond file will be written for you (one for which indexing works).

If you enter a whole Lilypond file that does not contain a MIDI-related keyword, no MIDI is generated. If no MIDI is generated, no Parsons code is generated, and indexing fails as well, since all information for the indexing is pulled out of the MIDI file.

I now changed things such that you can still enter a whole Lilypond file and avoid my server meddling with the file, but only if you include something about midi yourself. If there is no midi keyword, I will now meddle with the file and add some stuff before compiling to ensure that indexing is possible.

A few days ago I posted Marais, Marin: Five old french dances - l'Agréable, this went fine and was immediately searchable.
One day later I posted Marais, Marin: Five old french dances - La Provençale, which is still not found when searched for. It is listed in Latest Changes, but there is no automatic creation of a Midi and Parsons code, which was the case the first time. I tried to re-edit it a few times, with no success.
Both times I pasted a Lilypond file, that renders well in the Lilypond 2.12.2-1.
What went wrong ?

Finally, I got around to putting the new "point and click" editor online. Now the indexing should work again - anything you enter should be immediately searchable.

Hi Scott,

I am still working on changes of the indexing and search mechanism. The music you entered should not be lost (you should be able to see it under "Latest Changes" if you browse far enough). But currently it is possible that newly entered pieces are not immediately searchable. I hope to get around to fixing this soon.

Subject: Can't find what I posted
I've been using musipedia to do searches for about a year, and I love it!

Two days ago I set up an account and tried posting a melody for the first time. It looks like the post was successful, because I can see it in "Latest Changes" (Scarlatti's Sonata in E Major, K135) but none of my searches (javascript, flash, Parsons, with or without composer name) return the new piece.

It seems similar to wizofaus' problem, except that my searches are on a subset of the melody, and searching solely on the composer's name doesn't work either.

When I find my username on the member list it says "has worked on one tune," but clicking on that link gives me "no matches found."

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.
