This is a post demonstrating how to embed a scoreboard or leaderboard using an iframe for Keepthescore.co. What’s quite nice is that it will update automatically without the page reloading.
Advantages of having a widget
A scoring widget makes your content dynmaic and will increase the frequency that your audience returns to you. Integrating a widget on your website or blog will immediately make it stand out – whilst the effort required is minimal.
How does it work?
- First of all you need to go over to Keepthescore.co and create your scoreboard. You can do this without registering or providing an email address. Pretty cool, no?
- Click the “Share” button at the top of your scoreboard.
- Click the copy button next to the embed code.
- Paste the code into your page (e.g. Wordpress, Wix, Square, etc.)
- That’s it!

Here’s what a leaderboard looks like. It also has some custom colours, just because.
