    You know what I'd really like?
    A button to start up a chess thingie like the one you get when you click on "analyse games".
    now I always have to start one up via this site if I need one to see what people mean by those chess notations.

    anyone who likes writing Greasemonkey scripts or making toolbars?

    Do you have the script to turn a posted FEN board into an analyse board screen?

    You don't need to know much.
    Have a look at this thread, and it should guide you through the set-up. It's very easy.

    Thx

    but which of those add-ons do I need for the thing I want?
    I've already downloaded some but I don't think I got the right one yet.

    Set Piece Allows you to setup a board from FEN.

    Ragnorak's location is a direct link to the scripts, and they all have fairly good explanations. Don't get the blindfold/hide pieces one, or you'll be wondering why your board went blank.

    I had some earlier, but now I installed these two:
    Move waiting informer
    add buddy


    but neither of them seems to work. I already added the platheimmortalgame-sites to the properties, but I don't see anything change. What is it supposed to do?

    Could you explain exactly what you want again, please?

    The Forum one allows you to click on a board within the forums, and it'll open an Analyse Board screen.

    I have had much fun using the forum add-on.
    I meant having a button on your toolbar that would give you the opportunity to start up some kind of a chess screen like the "analyse board" on ANY site.
    For example, when I look something up about chess on Wikipedia and I want to know what some of the moves noted there mean, I always havo to go to this site to start up such a screen.
    I know I should use a chess application but mine is really old and isn't that good.
