Unable to load score onto Musescore.com via the publish option from the Musescore editing program.

I followed the link..... here I am!

I attach the score in question, which already exists on musescore.com

I tried again, aligning the musescore score on-line identity with the identity in the file properties inside the musescore program, and it failed with the same reason.

It's still happening. The only way round it seems to be to delete the existing on-line score and declare this one as a new score.
Does clearing the file entry in the Properties section help? I tried that thinking it would, but it made no difference.

"Does clearing the file entry in the Properties section help?"

Do you mean "clearing the Source field in Project Properties"? That is accessed through File > Project Properties > Source. And yes. it makes a very big difference:
a) if you leave an existing URL in that Source field, it will update the score (provided that you are the owner/uploader of the original score);
b) if you clear the Source field, then that will create a new score on musescore.com.

Interesting. I can't upload one of my own scores using the upload function. I only have two scores on my page. One uploaded with MU3 and one with MU4. No problem with either.

There is no "source field" property in MU4. There's a "file path", but that's just where MU4 got the file from.

No problems bobjp.

OK, so...

Since our last exchange I have tried deleting and forcing an add, just to get round the problem.

But for yourself (and other readers' benefit), lets try replacing again:

On the website is a score called Grave Goods. I click on the score and take note that the address is
In MS4 I check that the project properties source contains
Then I hit Publish to Musescore.com. with the option to "replace the existing on-line score".
It exports the audio file.
Then it comes up with a window saying "Your score could not be published. Try again later, or get help for this problem on musescore.org."

Voila. Hmmm....

Well, I used the "Publish to Musescore.com," and that is what I've always done, (apart from the odd occasion recently to get round difficulties.) Not the Save Online
I always save locally (of course) beforehand.
In the old days I used to take the "Upload" option from the website, but Marc said that was an outmoded way of doing things, so I stopped doing that.
