pgn4web help

pgn4web is a chess games viewer for websites, blogs and live broadcasts.

The user can interact with the chessboard using the keyboard, clicking chessboard squares (hovering the mouse on each square displays an help summary) or using touch gestures.

Errors alert messages are logged, such as failures to load PGN games, incorrect PGN games or incorrect FEN strings. When an error is encountered, a chessboard square will flash to signal the exception. The error alert log can be reviewed clicking on the flashing chessboard square.
