    Is there any way to post an interactive PGN board that doesn't start at the beginning of a game? I've tried it with the FEN of the position in the proper place, but when I try to post it, it says "Invalid PGN, check FEN." I've checked the FEN, and there are no errors when I post it as just a board position, so the FEN is correct...

    Is this feature available or am I doing something wrong?

    Should I have posted this in the Site Ideas forum?

    Currently this feature only works when it's white's turn to move. So if your FEN states it's black's move it will not work. If this isn't the problem then try posting it here and I'm sure someone will be to tell you what's wrong.

    First, with white to move:




    Now with black to move

    Yes, sorry, known issue. A fix will appear soon(ish).
