    Hi

    When are we going to get more than one fen per post?

    When?

    I'm fed up.....continued next page.

    continued from previous page

    .........having to put in extra posts

    to continue a piece of analysis because I am
    restrcited to one fen per post.

    Three per post would ideal.

    we could have:

    [fen1]instructive diagram[/fen1]
    [fen2]instructive diagram[/fen2]
    [fen3]instructive diagram[/fen3]

    At the moment I'm sending my students to look at analysis
    from their games played on here to another site because I'm
    restricted to one fen per post.

    How silly is that?

    And...

    Whilst you are in there sorting out the code.

    Correct the pgn game moving thing-gummy jig so it starts
    from the inital position.

    And...

    Whilst you are there, how about allowing us to start
    the pgn game moving thing-gummy jig to from a set position.

    Please.

    Thank you.

    PS: what is the technical name for the pgn game moving thing-gummy jig?

    absolutely, one fen per post is impractical!

    It was always intended to support multiple fens, so only a tiny bug fix was required.

    This has been fixed too. Again, a very small tweak.

    Starting from set pieces though is on my to-do list, but requires some work, so that wont be appearing for a while.

    Just now realized why 5 boards, and such strange set-ups. Rec'd!~

    Huh!

    I've been all night posting single fens for my guys in Bates Motel.

    38 posts I had to use - I could have have done in all in about 10.

    Well this is super-duper news and I see the pgn thing-gummy
    now starts from the initial postion.

    What can I say - thank you.

    If you had contacted Swiss Gambit and his boys in the
    Problemists Club they would have composed mates in two
    forming the word word fixed.

    I wanted three max because you are bound to get some clown
    posting a fen at every move so you will have 40 fens in a 20 move game.

    Hmmmmm....Nice idea that - see you on the funny pages.

    Thanks Again.
