I added something to that effect.

I also noticed (and fixed) a problem with the index not being updated immediately for newly entered music. Until recently, new melodies were not immediately searchable. But that should now work again.

BTW: I just ordered a new server with more main memory and a faster CPU!

I didn't know that either. I had just been using spaces

Again, sorry for noticing your post so late!

Could it be that you did not separate the notes with tab characters in expert mode? The tab characters make sure that notes and lyrics line up so you can see what you entered even in expert mode. When switching back to beginner's mode, everything between two tabs is interpreted as one note. If there is no tab between notes, all notes are interpreted as one single note.

If this caused it, I would call it a documentation bug - it needs to be clearer that the tabs are needed.

There possibly is a bug in the melody editing page:

* Go to lilipond (expert) mode
* Enter a line of music followed by a line of text
* Switch to beginners mode
* Switch back to expert mode -> All music but the first note is deleted (first line is gone). Text (second line) is still unchanged.

I'm currently using Firefox 1.0.6, but can check in Konqueror as well.

Otherwise: This is a *great* site...

Regards, Jacob.

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.
