    How do I post a already played position, say one that starts at move 40, and then play it out. I know how to post a game with the PGN but not from a already started position.

    Also, how do I include in the PGN a promotion to say a queen or Knight?

    The answer to both questions is the same, really. Well, unless you want to hand-hack it, which is possible - but the easy answer is:

    Load the game into your favourite PGN viewer (I suggest Chesspad), chop out moves that you don't want and add moves you do want, then copy the result from the viewer "as PGN" and paste into the forum.

    I'm not sure I follow-I am trying to figure out how to post a game board in a forum from a already started position (say move 40) and then show a different continuation then was played in the game.
