    Sorry if I haven't made myself clear.. this is what I mean [Event "Playing on Chess Time"]
    [Site "ChessTime"]
    [Date "2018.08.20"]
    [Round "1"]
    [White "Ian Morley"]
    [Black "Decisions"]
    [Result "1/2-1/2"]

    i pressed the box to upload a pgn , and you see how the data isn't on one line here, its on a separate line for each title, well that doesn't work when uploading hence all the error messages in 64 squares of pains ' forum. I worked out through trial and error it had to be on one line like so
    [Event "Playing on Chess Tim[Site "ChessTime"[Date "2018.08.20"[Round "1"[White "Ian Morley"][Black "Decisions"][Result "1/2-1/2"]

    does that make sense ??? mainly for Zak who thinks after 5 or 6 times i wouldn't get the picture, but its actually trying to find the error after the posting codes were actually correct

    So you want to turn this:

    [Event "Playing on Chess Time"]
    [Site "ChessTime"]
    [Date "2018.08.20"]
    [Round "1"]
    [White "Ian Morley"]
    [Black "Decisions"]
    [Result "1/2-1/2"]

    Into this:

    [Event "Playing on Chess Time"] [Site "ChessTime"] [Date "2018.08.20"] [Round "1"] [White "Ian Morley"] [Black "Decisions"] [Result "1/2-1/2"]

    Then place in all the moves to complete the pgn.
    i'll make some up:

    [Event "Playing on Chess Time"] [Site "ChessTime"] [Date "2018.08.20"] [Round "1"] [White "Ian Morley"] [Black "Decisions"] [Result "1/2-1/2"] 1.e4 e6 {another bloody french defense} 2.d4 d5 3.e5 c5 3.c3 Nc6

    Place the above within the pgn command brackets which [look] like [/this]
    and you should get the following:



    And Bob is your Uncle... of course I checked the "Preview before post" box before I shared this.

    Cheers,
    Zak
