Everything works, including the flash player, if I view the site using Microsoft Edge.

My idea is to do nothing. I copy/paste the moves into winboard to play through them with Stockfish. It's much harder for me if the moves are obscured by some type of "active content", so I have a strong preference for chesspub to just be plain text.

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

The boards shouldn't be effected, just the Flash games. I'm not sure what to do about this, but am open to ideas.

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.

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 ?
