about the html links

jh
Hello-
In general Lilypond has gotten so technical that I can't even follow the
questions.....however I use it (older version) and am generally pleased
with what I can understand.
However
Often there are attachments that are 'scrubbed' and links at the bottom
of questions and responses, and once upupon a time I had an inkling of
how to access those but no longer and just clicking on them gives me
'bad gateway' messages.
So how does one access those?
THanks
Jay

I am looking for 2-3 dancers various abilities/disciplines for a piece
Called The Box it was scheduled for November  but we know how that has
gone. However I am interested in making videos of the moves and having
dancers work on them and the music before we can get into the same
room....... Paid rehearsals and the door divided evenly by participants.
Spread the word please.

It's useful when asking questions like this to say by which method
you're accessing the discussion. I'll assume that you're reading
the mailing list on gnu.org in text digest form.

If that is so, then you need to visit
https://lists.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/lilypond-user
and click on [Unsubscribe or edit options] near the foot of the page.
Login on the page that appears, and then change your subscription
from Plain Text to MIME, about halfway down the page that appears.
You'll start receiving digests with each post and attachment as a
separate part of a multipart digest, instead of just running text.

Cheers,
David.

Thanks for this.  I'm not doing what you assumed.  I get the 'digest'
via email and that is where I see the links at the end of many of the
queries/responses.
It's been so long that I even went to the places you mention that I no
longer have a record of logging in or password etc.

I hope that this is the answer to the suggestion/question you raise.  
Perhaps it is not possible to access those links from the email?

Sorry. I assumed you would understand that digests are intrinsically
emails, designed for people whose systems struggle with large numbers
of individual posts.

You don't need it. I gave you the link, and I know that you can
ascertain the email address that the digests are being sent to.

Time was when people communicated with list servers by means of
commands that looked like an adventure game: pickup sword,
kill giant, etc. Typically, you can still unsubscribe in that
manner, but most interactions are nowadays done through a browser.

So please visit the link and press the button. (Not a lot to ask.)
Everything you need will then be available. I could do the first
step for you, but the result might be misinterpreted as a phishing
attempt, so I won't.

Cheers,
David.

Done- thanks.  I do remember feeling (a very long time ago like version
12?) overwhelmed by the number of emails received that's probably why I
changed it, not understanding that it would cripple being able to access
the links.
So we proceed
thanks again.
