FAQ

How do I use the chord shortcode?

The syntax is simple: [chord NOTE (QUALITY)]
To add chords to any song lyrics, just use the [chord] shortcode before any syllable you would like a chord notation to be placed above. For example, instead of writing like this:

Old way:

G7 C Fsus C
This is my story, this is my song

With this plugin, you would write it like this:

Example:

[chord g 7]This is my [chord c]story, [chord f sus] this is my [chord c] song

What are the other shortcodes?
  • [kcn_buttons layout="vertical"] (vertical,horizontal)
  • [kcn_buttons size="xs"] (xs,sm,md,lg)
  • [key] to be placed at the top of a page
    Syntax: [key KEY (QUALITY)]
    Examples:
    [key c minor] = Key of C minor
    [key cb] = Key of C♭
    [key d#] = Key of D#
