    Is there any way to display a board with the 8th rank on the bottom, the 1st rank on top, the a-file on the right, and the h-file on the left? Thanks.

    you can set the pieces in reverse position. the board looks the same from both directions.

    I keep messing up my question. I meant to ask how to post an "upside-down" board in a forum post (Black pawns moving "up" and White pawns moving "down" ). Wormwood's idea would work, but it would be tedious to figure out the FEN. Thanks again.

    You can't.

    Check out Thread 78535.

    Also, questions about site usage should really be in the Help forum. There are way too many threads in Only Chess which aren't even about chess these days (Not your fault, I know)
