    Hi!, I’m interesting in your plugin. I tried with the free version and I have somre problems with the pgn board. See this sample please:
    Can you help me?

    Do experience other issues besides king size boards?

    To get smaller boards on large screen, have you tried using the “width” and “align” attributes?

    [pgn width="50%" align="left"][/pgn]


  6. Martin says:

    Alf, thanks for the reply. Yes, it’s the same. When I press right keyboard quickly for advance in the game, the board breaks. Another question, are the colored arrows available in the free version?

    Another example:

    Currently have version 1.0.96 installed, dashboard shows there is a new version available; However, automatic update is not available for the plugin.

    Do I have to download the pro update somewhere, or are you just holding the release until tweeks are completed?

    Downloaded demo today, to test out. Two problems.

    Problem 1 – Version 1.0.63 installed, it says there is an update to 1.0.64. Click on update, and it never updates, keeps looping.

    Problem 2 – Try using FEN, and nothing is displayed. Example from shortcode : [fen tpl="Mate in 1" theme="Blue" float="left"]6k1/5p1p/r4Pp1/8/8/8/6PP/4R1K1 w - - 0 1[/fen]

    PGN shortcode works fine, it looks good, but I am not sure if I have the right version due to these issues. Would like to test out further, as I plan to use for coaching.

    • Carl says:

      Forgot the fen issue, worked that one now. Still having issues with the update looping.

      Can you confirm what the latest version of the “free” version is, compared to the “pro” version. I am interested in purchasing, but want to test out the features in more detail.

      Is it possible to have a trial version? I am wanting to test out tactics trainer option for my junior chess players. Thank you.

  10. Alf says:

    Carl, you have the latest version, there was an error in the zip where the version code was one lower than the registered one on the server. I have resolved that problem now.

    I have sent you an email with a personal link to the PRO version which you are free to try out for a month.


  11. Mato says:

    How much would you charge to install it to my website?
    Please advice

    • Alf says:

      Unfortunately, a fully packed schedule prevents me from offering any personal help installing the plugin.

      If you experience problems installing it, I suggest trying to get help at the forums at After registering at the forums, please send an email to post[at] so that your forum account can be activated.

    Would love to try the Pro Version for our website. If it works out will pay for it.


  13. andy says:

    I would like to buy pro but., i want to try full version first, Do you have som video as well how to use and , how to put all code it for wordpress

    • Alf says:


      A link to the PRO version has been sent by email. You are free to try it for 1 month. At the end of that period, you can decide if you want to purchase a license or remove the plugin.

  14. Mukaddesur Rahman Khan says:

    Hello. We are developing a chess website. We want tactics trainer, online tournament, one to one game, analysis board with engine support. Can you help our developers with that? will your pro version covers those? can we have look at your pro version?

    • Alf says:

      A tryout link for the PRO version has been sent by email. The PRO version supports many features, but not playing online. A version for correspondence chess(multiple days per move) is the easiest version to implement.

      Playing in real time is much harder and not so trivial to implement in the PHP language WordPress is based on.

    • Alf says:

      What is your username at

      The plugin only supports moving piecing by drag’n drop. two-square click is still not implemented. It’s on my list of features for an upcoming update.


  16. tonyhuang says:

    hi Alf how can i get the update for 1.0.108 ?

    the wordpress shows a notice that there is a new version of 1.0.108,but it doest support automatic update.
