To make a FEN string, use uppercase letters for White pieces, lowercase for Black pieces, and a number for groups of blank squares. Use a "/" to go to the next rank.
Example: k7/2B5/4n3/6R1/1q6/4K3/2P3p1/8 represents this position:
To make a diagram here, surround it with FEN tags:
[ fen ]k7/2B5/4n3/6R1/1q6/4K3/2P3p1/8[ /fen ]
(remove the spaces next to brackets)
