How do I add chess diagrams to my posts?

Adding Chess Diagrams to your posts is ridiculously easy and takes just moments to do.
  1. First, go to this website: Chess videos
  2. Set up your chess position. Note that you cannot capture other piece by superimposing your piece on the square, rather manually take the piece you want to capture off the board with your mouse and then place your own piece on that square.
  3. Click Generate Diagram
  4. Cut and paste the link in the box entitled "NEW! Now with a link back to the position:"
  5. Paste that link in your post
  6. Post your post, the chess diagram should appear.
For further assistance please read Setting Up Chess Diagrams, and if you're still having problems feel free to post.
