Integrated with SikhiToTheMax to provide Shabad lyrics

As you all know, Sikh Sangeet is pulling in Shabads from SikhitotheMax database so that we can show shabads on Sikh Sangeet website, as people are listening. However, we need your help in connecting audio shabads to their text.

Here is an example album where track 02, 03, 04, 05 are all readable. You just click on “Shabad” tab and press “Read Shabad”. Link: Various – Bollywood Gurbani Tracks (Sikh Sangeet Compilation)

So if you want to volunteer by linking the shabads, here are the steps:
1. Login to Sikh sangeet account. (Sign up if you have not)
2. Go to the shabad/album that you want to add the Shabad for.
3. Play the shabad if you need to.
4. Find that shabad in SikhiTotheMax
5. When you search, remember to click the “Shabad” button in the search results.
6. Now look in the address bar, the link will be something like this: http://sikhitothemax.com/page.asp?ShabadID=20555 (note this last number)
7. In Sikh Sangeet, click the “Shabad” tab right below the track you just listened to.
8. Put the Shabad ID in that input box, and click the button “Add Shabad”.

Once you have done this, I will make sure the info is correct and all sangat will be able to read the Shabad lyrics.

Remember your little seva will do a lot for the thousands that use this website.

Is it possible to somehow let the sangat know more about this awesome tool? Like hardly anyone will click on the ‘shabad’ link underneath the shabad. Could you maybe make that link bigger? Or put a bigger announcement on the website?

Thank you Amitoj Singh for your feedback.

We have definitely tried to make this feature more accessible, by offering a “Read this Shabad” link when users are listening to a shabad that we have lyrics for. This will help in the adoption of it.

We have noticed that you have submitted a couple of shabad lyrics, we thank you for it, and hope that you continue to do online seva.

very nice feature. Do I need to download Gurmukhi font as the punjabi is not shown properly. if so, could you kindly post the link please

Yes, you will need the gurbani font: http://www.sikhnet.com/files/fonts/gurbaniwebthick.ttf
Need instructions? Here’s how you install the gurbani font.
