Setting up a Chess-related website I have been thinking of coming up with my own website featuring some chess stuff, but the chess diagrams seem a big obstacle to cross.

I have seen some using Java applets to do it, while others borrows the support of the chessbase program, and some has many tiny pics forming the chessboard. I really have no idea which is good for what, and what are their pros/cons/requisites.

Can anyone point me in the right direction please ? Thanks a lot :)


Best regards,

Yes, you should use one of them javascript ... The one mentioned by mattafort is good and easy to use. You could always use chessbase too, as many people seem to be doing.

Then there are java viewers, most of them are wonderful too.

The good thing about them online viewers is that someone visiting your website can see the game right there.

you can also just point them to a website where the game is shown, It's easier on you to just post a link to, say, chessgames.com.

Chessmaker white_disk For my own site I purchased an absolutely wonderful little program called Chessmaker. It is very easy to use and set up, has many features, and is well supported by the manufacturer. There is a one time fee of $9.95 to purchase it but I found it to be well worth it. I use it to create and post chess puzzles on my own site, and to email chess positions to my friends. I couldn't recommend it more highly. You can find it at:
