Members need to supply these details >>> System details - help us to help you (click on blue link)


Moderators

There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.


The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.


Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

You are doing it from the Library window, with song files you have already downloaded. Yes those options on bottom of the Library window are for the LW audio player. Save As ... is for creating playlists. That is its only purpose.

So I guess it depends on what you are trying to do. Your Library files are files that have already been downloaded to your computer, else files you have put up for sharing from your computer. I am a little confused what you are trying to do. To directly access your audio files on your computer that you downloaded, select Saved Files folder & press the Explore button. Sample image here: Using Library Explore button to access downld folder (click on link) & the folder will open up for you. You could then move them to wherever you desire if you wish to move them at all (such as My Music folder.)

Hey thank you for your quick reply what I am trying to do is...I have a memorial page set up for my husband and it will allow you to put your own music on there. So I find the music I want on Limewire and save it to my home computer and then I go to the memorial page and the window there gives you the option to browse and get the music but it is limited to what it lets you access so I was just trying to save it to my desk top so I could get to it easily. But the player on the memorial page will only take mp3 files and mine keeps getting changed to that m3u file. I get very frustrated because I can't do it right. Thank you so much for your help.

Ah ... need to make specific directory mapping for each song. Well I have not set up a web page for quite some time & also depends on which software you are using such as raw html or a higher up web design software which cuts out a lot of the harder html needed knowledge. I'm sure nowadays there are tools around that would make it easier. (My personal web page did have music files linked. But it has not been online for years lol )

You might be able to ask on a forum that deals with web design about how to do it. Google around.

Default pro stability vs basic

Have had consistent problems with limewire shutting down every few minutes despite turning off firewalls, uninstalling and reinstalling, and making adjustments in the lime wire settings. Will pro version improve this?

no. I'd suggest http://www.gnutellaforums.com/333278-post2.html & deleting your LW preferences folder.

You could try an earlier version of Java; http://www.gnutellaforums.com/genera...tml#post339821. Other than that, perhaps downgrading to LW 4.18

Default ???????

Bought lime wire pro and uninstalled old version, and then reinstalled. Redid JAVA. Also disabled fire wall. The program worked, though anemically, for 3 days. Now it cuts off more than it did before I upgraded. I thought tech support was part of the benefit of upgrading to PRO. The website just directs me to generic pre printed answers. Have I paid for software I can not even use?
