    can you clarify exactly what you want?

    copying a PGN into a post would simply mean copying the text from within the file (open it with notepad) and pasting it into the post when typing it.

    are you wanting to display a board in the forums? (this uses FEN not PGN)

    Regarding putting a FEN file in one of the forums, how can you do that?
    I'm working on MAC OS X, is there any software that allows you to create/post one?

    you dont really need software to write them - they are easy enough once you understand them.

    See Thread 60219 & Thread 53742 (4th post down) for more info.

    Well, if you just want to post the "PGN Text" then a simple cut-n-paste will do the trick.

    FEN -> PGN might be impossible but (a certain position from a) PGN -> FEN is often quite easy if you have some Chess Software.

    FEN -> PGN is most definately impossible as FEN only shows a single position, PGN shows the moves of the game.
