    Maybe you should try to click the link "Insert board from FEN" below the post box and paste your fen code there

    For the first one your code above was:
    3N4/Ppk2P2/1N6/K7/8/8/8/8

    It should be:
    3N4/Ppk2P2/1N6/K7/8/8/8/8 w - - 0 1

    So I guess without that info in the end it doesn't work.

    It doesn't need them, just needs the [ fen ] and [ /fen] tags (without the spaces). The bits at the ends aren't necessary just for showing a position.

    Lots of variations on this one!

    Added ++ to Nxc4 as # would show this:
    1.Bc7 has no threat, because c4 is still guarded by Rb4.

    Edits: I should know better than to solve right after I wake up.

    The solution given by fetofs is not complete.

    1.Bc7! (zz)

    1...Nxc7 2.Qxg7#
    1...Nf6 2.Bxd6#;
    1...Qd8 (Qxc7, Qxb8) 2.Qxe6#;
    1...b6 (b5) 2.Nc6#;
    1...Qd7 2.Nxd7#;
    1...f4 2.Qg5#;
    1...Rb5 (Rb6) 2.Nxc4#;
    1...c3 2.Nd3#;
    1...g3 2.f4#.

    The problem is the forum doesn't support more than one FEN position per post.
