Nee, das meinte ich nicht, sondern: Ich habe mein Profil angelegt und - wie gewnscht - ein Foto hochgeladen. Aber kein Foto (bei den anderen auch nicht) erscheint. Was luft schief?

Subject: Re: picture upload
The system is meant to support all of the above.
What happens is:
- your file is uploaded (can be any file)
- the type is assumed to be specified by the extension (.jpg or .JPG or .gif or .tif or anything else)
- when the picture is displayed in a browser, a temporary file with the same extension is created on the server and sent to the web browser.

All of this boils down to:
You can upload anything, but it makes only sense to upload something that browsers will be able to show. So, .gif or .jpg or .png should work. If future browser generations will support other types as well, Musipedia will automatically support this, too. But there is no mechanism that will prevent you from uploading something browsers don't understand.

Thanks for pointing this out. I will add a little explanatory text next to the upload box (or maybe a question mark that leads to pop-up help).

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.
