    I wonder how many there are... since there is at least one more I know of... but only one more I know of... and I did not expect your first one!

    Get a Fen Position like this one....

    8/8/7r/8/5n2/5k2/7R/7K b - - 0 1

    Now, next to 'insert smiley' and 'insert link to game' you will find a third link called:

    'Insert board from FEN'

    paste the Fen in there and it shows up in the thread.

    You can do a reply and quote to my fen board, and you will see something like

    [f en]8/8/7r/8/5n2/5k2/7R/7K b - - 0 1[/f en]

    with no spaces... that is how they get plugged.

    You left one rank out... you only list 7 ranks, and the board is blank.
