Why is an advert being discussed here?
I will allow it for now and move anything else to the adverts section.

This whole issue is still being looked at.
In better news looks like Paolo has ridden to the rescue yet again and all is working.

Please point out any diagram issues however though.

Code: Select all

PGN and POS

It appears "we" should have always added games like this:

{pgn}
[Date "2016.04.15"]
[White "7.5"]
[Black "?"]
[Result "*"]
[SetUp "1"]
[FEN "b1n5/kP2K3/1R6/2P3n1/q7/8/8/3r1r2 w - - 0 1"]
[EventDate "2016.??.??"]
{/pgn}

{pos}
b1n5/kP2K3/1R6/2P3n1/q7/8/8/3r1r2 w - - 0 1
{/pos}

[/pgn] For a position, get from your software the FEN string and enclose that in this tag: [pos] ... [/pos] Notes: -...
