I didn't find any information about special diagram notations in the FAQ... I tried to put the string names next to the guitar neck diagram in this question, but this produced chord diagrams which weren't visible in the preview.

Like this:

E - - - o o - o - O
B - - - o o - o
G - - - o - O - 
D - - - o - o o
A - - - O - o o 
E - - - - - - -

Here the chord diagrams are not shown; I suppose because the feature is not active on the meta site?

So, where are these features documented, and could you please fix the preview? Thanks.


Setting preview issues aside for a moment, you can find tutorials and the like here: http://jtab.tardate.com/. We don't keep a copy of their docs.

I think the OP is specifically requesting that jTab be added to the post preview so that we don't have instances of people using the syntax by accident only to find their post comes out completely different from what they expect... This would also be very useful: meta.music.stackexchange.com/q/240/133 – NReilingh Oct 6 '12 at 5:19
@NReilingh jTab takes over all of your "code" blocks, right? – Adam Oct 6 '12 at 5:20
I never figured out exactly how it works since I don't answer many guitar questions; I just put everything in <pre> tags if I want to be safe about it. But yeah, it is a bit overzealous from what I see of other peoples' butchered posts. – NReilingh Oct 6 '12 at 5:22

See my question here. The first example shows how to use jTab's custom chord syntax.
