ALERT symbol

At the top of each post, to the left of the Quote button, is a button with an explanation mark.

This is the alert button which you use to alert the moderators that the subject post, in your opinion, contains information or content not in keeping with the rules of the forum. The moderators can then take action if required.

Editing or deleting your posts

You can edit your own posts after submission by clicking on the "Edit" button. If someone else has posted after you in the thread, a message is added to your post to say that it was edited, otherwise the edit is transparent.

You can only delete your posts (by clicking on the "X" next to the "Edit" button) if nobody has posted after you. Otherwise you cannot delete but only edit out anything you wish you had not said! :oops:

(This latter point still confuses people from time to time!)

Update: It is no longer possible to delete your own posts, but if you need a post to be removed you can ask a moderator to do it for you.

I originally posted this in another thread, but it might be worth repeating here.

Previewing your posts

When you've composed a post, you can hit the "preview" button instead of submitting it right away. You'll get a preview above your editing window where you'll be able to see whether quotes, smilies, etc, will come out correctly, then you can change the text if necessary in your editing window and preview again till it looks right before clicking on submit. When editing a quote, for instance, it is easy to accidentally delete part of the surrounding codes, causing it to display wrongly, so it is useful to preview first.

Along the same lines, you can "save" before submitting. I started doing this because twice, after writing long posts, my submissions went missing and I never found them again! I don't have to worry about that if I save them, first...

Thanks for the great post Natan.
If I could gently squeeze those brain cells a little more, do you happened to know how to insert an image in the post verses the attachment option which just puts it at the end of the post.

How to insert an attachment inside your message? :reflechir:

(This procedure can be used for inserting jpg, audio, video and pdf files - see here for which file types are permissible).

Go to the bottom of the post screen and click on the Attachments tab:
attachments.JPG
You will then see an "Add files" button:
attachments2.JPG
Click on that button and then find and open the file on your computer.

The name of the added file will appear in the list below the edit window. If you wish, type a short description in the "File comment" box.

If you want to type more text after the attachment, rather than have it appear right at the end, then place the cursor where you want the attachment to appear in your post and click "Place inline" against the relevant filename in the list.
attachments3.JPG
Attachment tags will be generated inside the editor window, looking like this:
attachmenttags.JPG
Feel free to type any text above or below, or to move these tags to any place you like.

If you want to add more attachments, click on "Add files" again and repeat the process.

To delete an attachment, click on "Delete file" against the relevant filename in the list.

TIP on Viewing images:
If you are viewing an image in another member's posts and you see a scroll bar at the right hand edge of the image, just click on the image and the whole image will appear without a scroll bar.

You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post.

Further to natan's excellent post, and at the risk of stating the obvious, when attaching an image to a post you can position the cursor first anywhere in the editing window (by clicking) before finally clicking on "place inline", and the image will be inserted at that cursor position.

QUESTION
I know I've found it difficult finding scores in that vast resource the forum provides. Some are in 1-4 level, some in the next level, etc. and some, like Tarrega's pieces are all in one PDF .

Has anyone figured out a good method of searching for a particular piece or knows something the rest of us don't?

If you can help, please remember to Highlight the subject of your response to make it easier for anyone going through this thread..

Thanks

All the score levels have a catalogue, and all the catalogues are also shown on ;

Perhaps, I think.

Google search using site:www.delcamp.net was mentioned before.
Here is a link, which is taken from the site's main page, and could be really helpful for lazy people. It brings the same results.
Bookmark it.

This is a great thread, but I just read it from start to finish and I'm beginning to hyperventilate and I fear that my head might explode. I'm gonna go play my guitar.
