I switched for my blog already 2 years ago from the Flash Player to the chess.com viewer. However last week I noticed all my diagrams were suddenly screwed up. The chess.com viewer uses a script which grabs content from a server of chess.com. Unfortunately this content was recently changed which messed up the layout of all old diagrams.

I checked other sites and it seems only for chess.com itself old diagrams aren't impacted or they found a way to convert automatically everything. Sites not belonging to chess.com and using the chess.com viewer do have the same issues as I have.

Meanwhile I manually made the necessary changes in the code to make the chess.com viewer again readable on my blogs. It was a massive task as I needed to check one by one all the articles. I estimate that I spent about 6 hours at it.

Now I don't know when the next "update" will happen. It just shows that when you use something for free that you have no guarantee at all about the service.

Sorry, now sorted. Will the forum be updating to avoid the issue over using Flash Player ? I think it means allowing HTML5.

Hi All, everything used to be fine. However, now, when anybody posts with a board included in the post, I can't see it. I am using Chrome and have checked that Flash Player and Java are enabled. Any thoughts ?
