Link your website to a set list

When you make a set list public you can add a link to any website. This is a great way to build links to your website so it will get more visibility.

You do this by editing the setlist in on the Setlist tab. In the edit dialog you will see 2 fields:

Setlist Help - Related Website

  1. Related Website: Enter the website your setlist should link to. You must have http:// in the website name.
  2. Description of Related Website: This is a short description of the link such as “Buy on iTunes”. If this field is left blank the “Related Website” will be used as the description.

 

Below is an example of what will be displayed for the related website.

Site updates Dec 28, 2012

www.setlisthelper.com has been enhanced with some new features that were requested by a user

  • Show tempo in the printed view of the setlist.
  • Show/Hide set breaks in the printed version of the setlist
  • Insert a page break before or after each set break. This will make each set print to a new page. Therefore, if you have 3 sets each set will print to a new page.

You can get to these features by going to the setlist and clicking on the “Print” button. On this page there is a “Print Settings” checkbox. Click that check box to show the print settings. The image below will show where to find the new options.

 

Setbreak and tempo

Site Updates Oct. 31

A minor update has been made to setlisthelper.com to fix a couple of issues.

  • Setlist song order was incorrect after adding songs from the song catalog.
  • Setlist song order was displayed differently in Print format and the Setlist song grid.
  • Printing setlists displayed the lyrics incorrectly.

Thanks for using the site and if you have any other issues please email tim@setlisthelper.com

Chopro format support

Setlisthelper.com supports Chopro format. This is also know as Chordpro format. Below are the supported directives.

Look at http://ukegeeks.com/tools/ for a great tool to convert chords that are above lyrics to chordpro format.

Check out http://www.statistics101.net/chordsmith/  for a nice chord pro editor.

The directives listed below are wrapped in (‘{‘ and ‘}’). Upper or lower case is not significant:

{title: title string} ({t:string})
Title of the song. 
{subtitle: subtitle string} ({su:string})
Specifies a subtitle for the song that will be displayed below the title.
{start_of_chorus} ({soc})
Indicates the start of a chorus. This will show “Chorus” in bold, indent the chorus, and add a black line to the left of the chorus so it can be identified easier.
{end_of_chorus} ({eoc})
Marks the end of a chorus.
{comment: string} ({c:string})
Shows the string following the colon as a comment. Don’t confuse this with the # sign comment. # sign comments are not shown
{pause:xx}
Used to pause auto-scroll in the app. Replace xx with seconds or minutes.
{pagebreak}
This is only for the www.setlisthelper.com web site only. Add the {pagebreak} tag to your lyrics to make the printer go to a new page when printing. 
{start_of_tab} ({sot})
Indicates the start of a guitar tab section. The text will be formatted in a fixed-width font until the end_of_tab directive appears. This can be useful for creating a tab drawing with ASCII text. 
{end_of_tab} ({eot})
Indicates the end of the guitar tab section.
Chords

Chords are delimited by square brackets (‘[‘ and ‘]’). Sharp is indicated by a ‘#’ (hash) and flat by a ‘b’ (lowercase ‘B’). Songsheet Generator recognizes chords of the following form:

[A-G]{#|b}{m|dim|maj|sus}{digit}{/[A-G]{#|b}}
i.e. [A] [C#m7] [Bb/D]

Chord Grids

Are not supported yet. If this is something you would like to have supported please email tim@setlisthelper.com

Comments in the file

Lines in the file that have ‘#’ as the first character are considered comments and will never be printed.

 

Example

{t:Honky Tonk Women}

{st:Rolling Stones}

#HONKY TONK WOMEN                ROLLING STONES
#
#
    I [C]met a gin soaked barroom queen in [F]Memphis,
    she tr[C]ied to take me upstairs for a r[G]ide.
    She h[C]ad to heave me right across her sh[F]oulder,
    cause [C]I just can't seem to dr[G]ink you off my m[C]ind.

It's the H[G]onky Tonk W[C]omen,
give me, give me, g[G]ive me the honky tonk bl[C]ues.

I [C]laid a divorcee in New York [F]City,
    I h[C]ad to put up some kind of a f[G]ight.
    The l[C]ady she covered me up in r[F]oses,
    she bl[C]ew my nose and th[G]en she blew my m[C]ind.

Site updates Oct 2012

The setlisthelper.com has had some much needed updates. I hope they will be useful to you.

Export Song Catalog and Setlist

You can export the entire song catalog in Html or CSV format. Either of these formats can be opened in a spreadsheet such as Microsoft Excel. See the circled area below.

In addition, there is an export button on the Setlist Song tab and Setlist tab. This will export the songs in the setlist only. The Setlist Song export is shown below.

 

Search the Song Catalog

The Song Catalog can be searched on the Song Catalog tab or the Setlist Song tab. The picture below shows where the search field is for the Song Catalog.

 

The Song Catalog can also be searched on the Setlist Songs tab. This is useful if you have a large Song Catalog so you can find songs easily. See the picture below.

 

View the Song Key in the Song Catalog and Setlist Songs tab

This was a small change to show the Key column in the tables of the Song Catalog and Setlist Songs tab.

 

You may need to delete your browsers history (Cache) in order to see these features.

 

As always please let me know if you have other recommendations by emailing me tim@setlisthelper.com

Add multiple songs

You can add more than one song at a time with the “Add multiple songs” button located on the “Song Catalog” page.

Add multiple songs to song catalog

In addition, if you are logging into setlisthelper.com for the first time you will be prompted with the “Add multiple songs” page.

“Song name”, “Artist”, and “Key” can be put into the “Add multiple songs” page. You can also add the “Song Name” only.

The correct format to put multiple songs into the “Add multiple songs” page is:

{Song name}, {Artist name}, {Song Key}

For example the text below will add 2 songs.

Brown Eyed Girl, Van Morrison, G
The Middle, Jimmy Eat world, C

 

add multiple songs page

 

The “,” can be replaced with another type of delimiter such as a “Tab”. You can insert a “Tab” between the “Song Name” and “Artist Name” by pressing the “Tab” key on your keyboard. Using the “Tab” is useful if you wanted to copy several songs from a spreadsheet, such as Google docs or Microsoft Excel, and paste the songs into the “Add multiple songs” page.

Thanks for using www.setlisthelper.com!
