Is this a paid feature?

Yes. You require a paid PRO plan om Keepthescore to use this feature.

How do I create a board and get its shortcode?

These steps happen on Keepthescore.com. Proceed as follows:

  1. Create a scoreboard or leaderboard by clicking here.
  2. Click on “Share” button at the top of your newly created leaderboard or scoreboard.
  3. Click on the “Embed on WordPress site” button.
  4. Copy the shortcode code to your clipboard using the blue COPY button.
  5. Your shortcode will look like this: [ keepthecore token="rvfafgignlr" ]. This is what you add to your post in the next step.

How do I add the shortcode to my post?

Once you have installed and activated the plugin, you can use the “shortcode” to add a board to your post. Shortcodes are a feature of WordPress, which make it easier to quickly add content to your posts.

We’re assuming that you’re using the new block editor (“Gutenberg”), which was released with WordPress 5.0.

  1. Start a new paragraph and type “/”
  2. Select Shortcode from the list that appears and press enter.
  3. Paste the code you got from the step above. It should look something like [ keepthecore token="rvfafgignlr" ]
  4. That’s all. Save your post and your board should be visible.

How do I update scores?

Once you have embedded your leaderboard or scoreboard, you can update scores (as well as the colors, player names, etc) by logging in to Keepthescore.com and changing your scoreboard there. Your embedded scoreboard on WordPress will update automatically.

How to uninstall the plugin?

Simply deactivate and delete the plugin.

Very intuitive and easy to use, plus its free for small teams. We put our leaderboard up on a TV in the office to keep all the sales guys motivated. Works great!!
