Re: Adding new composer

Thank you for willing to contribute! Templates are special pages that can be invoked within normal pages to automatically create or display recurring wiki code segments. Your composer page must be a normal page, not a template. So, you should create a normal page with your name, and then copy-and-pa...

Re: O lux beata Trinitas - Mendelssohn - typo ?.

In the Wikipedia page for Mendelssohn's vespers (onlly available in German): https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vespergesang_(Mendelssohn) they remark that Mendelssohn applied multiple text variations, supposedly intentional: From Psalm 119, verse 132, a Variant form of the Latin text has been adopted: (...

If you aren't (as I expect), the same page provides a function to re-send the conf...

Re: How to list works by composer with voiceing/instruments?

Maybe everything gets more clear starting with an example based on a basic DPL query. Please open a composer page for editing, and add the following wiki code whenever you like in that page: {{#dpl:category={{PAGENAME}} compositions |include={Voicing},{Instruments} }} Then click on "Preview" so that...

Re: Music reader equivalent? /scanning sheet music

All optical music recognition programs known to me (SharpEye, Photoscore, ScanScore, Omer, PdfToMusic, ...) run under Windows and/or Mac OS. No Linux/Ubuntu. I guess you should try to use Wine.

Re: How to list works by composer with voiceing/instruments?

Yes, this is possible, and the best solution depends on some factors: - if you intend to obtain a listing that is displayed online for a specific composer, you may use DPL queries within a dedicated page; - if you intend to do the listing for several composers, you may create a template that automat...

Re: Updates to submission process?

As to the weird page where I left my query, could a brief explanation or a note telling people to ignore it be added? I've added the explanation I provided in my previous post, with minor modifications. Please feel free to improve it. Since these are so often the same person it seems odd to have th...

Re: Updates to submission process?

the main page should be simplified as a whole because it needs "forever" to load (probably the longer the bigger the CLDP gets). This not clear to me. Are you referring to the add work form, or to the main page of the CPDL website? The time to render the main page was never mentioned in this topic,...

Re: Updates to submission process?

I uploaded pdf and mxl files with the "Upload now" buttons and initially entered nothing in the upload tab. This led to the known error: the score file name/URL "" appears not to be a valid score file name/URL. The error reported is consistent with a lack of communication between the upload form an...

Re: Updates to submission process?

This confirms that, for some reasons, the upload form does not communicate with the add work form. It is possible that your specific browser settings interfere with the communication mechanism. Some time ago I struggled with Firefox under Linux due to some strange behavio(u)r, which did not occur at...
