User Space

Many people wish to publish their music scores on the Internet and run up against the concepts of server address, password, etc.. Here's the solution: the User Space.

You will be able in a few clicks, to create your personal space on the Internet and share your work.

Note : Users Spaces are reserved to registered users. If you're evaluating the software, you can see the already created User Spaces on this page.

Creating your User Space

This is the first step and the most important. It occurs only once and the question you have to answer is: "What name shall I give to my space?".
It won't be possible to rename your User Space afterwards and you must choose a clear and judicious name.
The name must not contain any accented characters, space, or dot.
So, only letters, numbers are allowed, possibly separated by a dash '-'.
Anyway, the forbidden characters not allowed can not be typed in.
The name must consist of at least 4 characters and not more than 64.
This name will be used to share the Internet address of your site.
For example, if you choose the name "will-smith", visitors will connect to your User Space typing in the address bar of their Internet browser: " http://will-smith.myriad-users.com".

First, navigate to your User Space setup from the software via the system menu  ( '?' on Windows, 'the name of the software( on Mac)  " Internet> Manage my User Space" or more directly by the dedicated icon in the "Edit" palette.

A default name will be proposed. You can change it. If the name is already taken by someone else a suggestion will be made by our server.

Your User Space is now created on our server. It is empty. We'll see how to fill it.

Publishing on your User Space

Activate, if not already done, the "Files" tab.
Right click the list to show the pop-up menu.
You can:
- Add files or entire folders, including sub-folders.
- Create folders in your User Space
- Delete files and folders.
- Download files from your User Space to your computer.
- Delete your entire User Space.

The allowed file typesare "myr" (or possibly. "mus"), "mu3" and "mya".
Once the files are added, click "Preview" to view your User Space in your browser.
If you make one (or more) mistakes you can go back by clicking "Cancel". After confirmation, your User Space is restored to its original state.

Tip : If you publish a complete tree (folder, sub-folders, files..) you can update it by publishing it again. Only modified files will be transferred.
If the sub-folder name begin with character '(' it is skipped.

To each folder or file, you can attach a comment by clicking on the area at the bottom of the window. This comment will be displayed on the matching web pages.

Note : Be aware, some web browsers keep visited pages in cache. It is often necessary to reload the page to see changes.

It belongs to you to make sure that you have the rights to broadcast the files you propose on your User Space.

Customizing your User Space

Select the tab "CV".
You will define your information: picture, name, description...
This is recommended but optional.
This information will be displayed on the front page of your site.
If you provide an URL to your web site be sure the address is complete and valid.

Managing visitors messages

Select the tab "Messages".
For each page of your Space, the visitors messages are displayed.
A right click opens the context menu on the element.
You can answer to this message: your reply will appear behind the message of the visitor and will be displayed in a special way.
By the same menu, the messages will be edited or deleted.

Changing the look of your User Space

Select the "Appearance" tab. Here you can customize the look of your User Space.

For each music score, you can choose to replace the standard icon by a small preview of the first or two first pages.

This will apply to files that you publish from then. To apply your choice to already published files, click "Apply" to let all the icons be generated again.

Several graphical themes are predefined, choose one and click "Preview" to view the result.

A theme is a collection of areas containing background pictures, text styles, etc..
If you want to create your own theme click on "Edit" and read the next chapter.

Creating your own graphic theme

The visual appearance of your User Space is highly customizable. If you decide to change it, keep in mind that readability is the key element that will make your User Space attractive or not.

First choose a preset theme that seems to be the closest to that you want. Then click on "Edit".

On screen you see a preview of a page, with areas highlighted when you hover them with the mouse.

Background pictures areas: left-click lets you change the background image, right click to delete the image.

Text areas: left-click lets you change the style.

If you choose a dark theme, you can request to reverse the contrast of your comments by clicking "Inverted contrast for comments". The black text will then be displayed in white.

Once your theme is complete, you can upload it via the button "Download archive". The whole data will be stored on your hard drive as an archive file with a "tpl" extension.
Through this option, you can create a set of themes that you can apply at your leisure via "Upload archive".

Advanced managment of Your User Space

Select the "Advanced" tab.

"Show in directory". by default, all users are listed in a directory: http://www.myriad-users.com
unchecking this option will remove your User Space from the directory.
Your User Space will still be accessible to search engines, like Google, or anyone who knows your user name.

"Administrator password". When several people use the same software license, for example in the context of a school or family use, you can password-protect access to the User Space management.

"Email". Please enter a valid email address. It will never appear on your pages. In case of problem, such as when someone reports a defect with a document released in your User Space, we may contact you via this address to solve the problem with you. In the absence of email, your Space will be invalidated without notice.

"Display Language". It is the language of the "system" texts that are automatically added by our server.

"Download archive" and "Upload archive". You can ask the server to send to you a backup of your entire User Space. It will be saved on your hard drive as a tgz (tar-gzip) archive. It will then be possible to revert to a previous state if any problem occurs. It is recommended to make copies at regular intervals.

Private User Space

In fact not only one but two Users Spaces are at your disposal:
  • The User Space which is publicly accessible to the whole world, for example:
  • The User Space which  is limited to persons knowing the password. You can set the password in the "Advanced" tab. The private User Space address will be, for instance:
The two User Spaces have a different and independent look.
When a visitor connects to your private User Space, a user name is requested as well as a password.
The username is "private" or left blank, the password is whatever you have defined.

Managing several Users Spaces on the same computer

This allow you to manage the User Space of somebody else. You can switch to another User Space from the "Internet" menu. You need to know the five first characters of the licence and the password.
You can't connect to an User Space no password protected.
