Michal Nezerka



BSTabs plugin registers new post type of type Tab which serves as container for files (gpx, audio, pdf, etc.) and information (instrument, genre, level, etc.) related to one specific tabulature. New shortcode [tabs] could be inserted in any post content and allows listing and searching in all tabulatures according attributes.

  • search – optional parameter for showing search dialog with controls for various tab metadata attributes. (possible values: yes, no; default value: no)
  • search_all_button – optional parameter for showing additional button in search dialog. This button allows users to show all tabs and ignore all search dialog filters. (possible values: yes, no; default value: no)
  • count – maximal number of listed tabulatures
  • orderby – optional parameter to set fields for order of tabulatures, acceptable fields are author, title and published . Default value is title.
  • order – optional parameter which provides additional information to orderby parameter. It specifies if list is sorted ascending or descending.Possible values are asc and desc. Default value is asc.
  • fields – optional parameter which allows to enumerate tabulature fields (attributes) to be shown in listing. Parameter value must be list of field identifiers separated by semicolon. Allowed identifiers are: title, instrument, author, key, level, genre, tuning, audio, tabs, links and published.
  • class – optional parameter to set additional CSS class for listing generated by shortcode
