    Hello all...I am new...and confused

    Hello...one of the many things that I have not figured out yet is how do I share one of my works...at the bottom of the page it says what I can and cannot do; i.e. post a new thread...hence this new thread. If anyone can let me know how to share a mp3, that would be great.

    I won't take up any more of your time...

    Thank you,

    Paul

    Welcome to the forum!

    You'll need to find a place to host your mp3. Many users like myself have our own webhosting and domains (you can get them really cheap these days) where we host our music. Otherwise there are public places like soundclick.com where you can create a music account and upload your work there. Then you just post a link in your post.

    There are places like geocities, freewebs and hosts like that but they are no good for posting music because they have limited space and do not allow remote linking. (You have to copy&paste the URL every time you want to listen...plus the bandwidth is very low usually, so not too many people will get to listen).

    Also, you may not be able to post links until you have made at least 5 posts I think. This limitation helps prevent spammers from posting links, though it sometimes causes confusion among new members. After you have your mp3 somewhere on the web, you simply start a new thread in the Listening Room with a link to your file or site.

    Hope this helps!

    And of course ... welcome to the forum!

    Welcome, Paul!

    Make a few more posts, and I think that posting lock should go away.

    Also:

    Somewhere recently someone was kind enough to post a list of free hosting sites, mp3 sites etc., that I'm sure you could use.

    Oh, yes!
    This is a good site, but it takes a few hours from time of upload to getting a link. And sometimes you never get a link and you have to try again, however, they mentioned they would fix that bug soon, so I don't know if it's fixed yet.

    Welcmoe to the forum, Paul!
