The UkeGeeks WordPress Plugin (BETA!)

UPDATE: December, 2014: This plugin hasn’t been actively worked on since I originally coded it. Chiefly this was due to a lack of time, but also a lack of interest. I have tested it on WP 4.0.1 and it works. The plugin code itself is a bit stale, however, that said, it might be good enough 😀 – ed

Easily add chord diagrams and styles to your website with this nifty plugin.

How To Install

  1. Download the UkeGeeks WordPress plugin .zip file to your computer.
  2. Login to your blog’s WordPress admin (wp-admin)
  3. Click “Plugins” in the left sidebar
  4. Click “Add New”
  5. You’ll see a link at the end of the sentence about plugins extending WordPress — there’s a link that says “upload a plugin in .zip format via this page” — click the “this page” link.
  6. The rest is super easy — “Choose File”, then click “Install Now”
  7. After a moment you’ll get the “Plugin installed successfully” page — click “Activate Plugin”

You’ve done it!

To use this you just need to wrap the song portion of your blog posts in this short tag: [ukegeeks-song] like this:

This would just be part of my normal post.
{c:Verse 1}
[C]This is my song, [E7]a song I like
But [A7]oh! I can't sing!
Oh, [D7]woe! True, [G7]I cannot [C]sing [G7]
This is back to normal post content.

It’s important that you include the begin and end tags — the end tag includes a forward slash.

NOTE: This plugin only works on installed WordPress sites you host: users, this is not for you.
