    It is now possible to select an opening which will automatically commit a series of conditional moves, avoiding the lengthy process of setting up the line using the regular interface.

    Use the "Play from opening" link on the conditional moves page.

    Is this a game by game selection, or can a default opening move set be created for all of your games?

    You must select an opening for each game.

    This is very welcome addition but I have problems with submiting conditional moves since opening was added. When I click on `submit conditional move' the message says that the page cannot be opened due to the wrong compression method. But if I go back to the conditional move page and refresh it, the move is registered! Is it only my problem or more general?

    This problem did not affect all users, but should be fixed now. If not, please send feedback.

    Whenever I try this, it says: Opening.... cannot be played from this position. This even happens from the initial starting position.

    Can you provide details please?

    The game id where it failed, and the opening you were selecting. Thanks.

    Via feedback if possible.

    I created a conditional move that would make a pawn promotion. When I created it, I was not asked to what piece the pawn should be promoted. I assume that this is a small bug.
