Chordie is a free site. There are no charges for membership; there were none in 2009 when you joined and there are still none in 2022 so I have no idea what you are talking about. However if you wish to cancel your membership I can easily do so. Please confirm that you wish me to do so.

Regards, Roger.

I have messaged Per and he stated: "The domain chordie.com was registered Oct 25 in 2002. So it does actually have a 20 year birthday soon."

upyerkilt (Ken) 'Unofficial king of Scotland' is the earliest recorded Member on 4th March 2006 but I am sure that Chordie has been around longer than that.

The only way this can happen is if you have the automatic translate active in your browser.

I had the same problem a while ago and found that the buttons on the right hand side of the screen were not functional. I had my browser window set at 125%, reducing back to 100% cured the problem, so maybe you are experiencing the same.

Give this a try and let us know if it is successful.

Hi Jim,

You are correct about the songbook limit so you have to create extra ones when you reach the limit.

Hi datsunrobbie,

There is a limit of 100 songs per song book so you have dome well to get 130 in it. you need to open a new book for more songs.

There is not a song save button, we have a 'ADD' to Songbook button so it looks like you are not doing it right. However, if pressing the 'ADD' button does not work please clear the cookies from your system as they can sometimes affect the correct operation of Chordie.

OK here is my contribution for this month. This song from 1964 by Karl Denver that has always been a favourite if mine. 'My World of Blue':

Ooops look like I am in error. Not ever hearing Joe's song before I thought it was an original but from Jan's comment I guess I was wrong.

Roger     

I enjoyed both Jan's adaption of a classic and Joe's original song. Great stuff, well done both of you.

Roger     

Thanks guys for the encouragement.

Richard the song was originally written in French, translated and recorded by Peters and Lee and spent a week at number one in the UK charts in July 1973 (it was there only number one recording).

Roger     

OK, I had a go. I rewrote the lyrics to the Peters and Lee song:

Nice one and an original especially for the return of Jan. Fantastic!

Hi Kateskw,

There is not 'How Deep Is Your Love' by the BeeGees in the Chordie library, only versions by Dru Hill and by Portrait. so I have no idea where you are finding the song.

If the song is in a Songbook (which is the only time that you would want to delete a song)  you tick the box to left of the song name. Then click on the 'Delete' button ( top of the song list in the middle of the page) as shown in the photo in a earlier post. This will bring up 'DELETE SELECTED SONGS?' on the left of the page with a Cancel and an OK box on the right to terminate the procedure or delete the song.

I have just done this so it works for me.

"BRAINWAVE" - Just remembered that a while ago I had a problem with buttons on the right hand side of the screen not functional and I found that I had my browser window set at 125%, reducing back to 100% cured the problem, so maybe you are experiencing the same.

Jaybird, I have no idea what you are talking about. No where can I find any circles next to a song neither in the library or my songbooks, there are square boxes for 'View' 'Font; etc. but no circles so I cannot help without further information.

I changed the e-mail on the original account and sorted out the password so now this Member is able to access his original account and Songbooks under his original username.

Roger     

Hi anrainiall,

You cannot transfer the songbooks from an account that you can no longer access. It may be possible for Per, the site owner and Administrator, to do something to help you. Please write an e-mail to him at admin@chordie.com explaining the situation and see if he can help. You will need to give all details, i.e. old username and e-mail address. Fingers crossed.

Hi Jandle,

Great to hear from you, I was concerned about your (and others) absence and planned to write you all in the new year. You have saved me writing one e-mail. smile
Sorry for your losses and troubles and hope that 2022 is the start of much better times for you.
