    Would it be possible to add annotations when posting pgn's in the forum? Perhaps there could be some sort of tag used for adding comments, for example...

    21.Kh1 {only move} ..Qh6 {Pinning the knight and preparing for mate}

    If these comments appeared at the bottom of the board as the relevant move was played it would be really cool.

    Also, it would be nice to post a game but set which move should be rendered as the default position. Currently it defaults at the last move but that's rubbish as you can see the final position before you've played through the game. Sometimes i'd like to point out a specific move, if it was possible to choose say, move 15 as the start position, then posting tactics would be more interesting as people would have a chance to try and solve the positions before they look at what was actually played... 🙂

    With a option with/without annotations, of course.

    I just posted a new thread on the same idea - didn't see yours but have edited it and given you the credit for this idea.

    Great minds eh 😉

    Well i'm not sure i can really take credit for the idea, when you add annotations to games in chessbase the annotations appear on the relevant move. It stands to reason though, i can't really see this sort of thing being too hard to code, you're only taking a string from inside the tags and printing them with the move that appears at the bottom. Should take about 10 minutes to code i'd imagine. 🙂

    Err, you can do that already. Under the move button is a notes link...
