FENEdit

Propose changing template to auto generate a FEN string based off the image. I have developed this code and it's currently being used at User:Matthew Yeager/Chess Render FEN. Please provide feedback either here or on my talk page.MatthewYeager 07:00, 29 September 2007 (UTC)

squares not "square"Edit

After changes today, the squares are not square - they are taller than they are wide. This needs to be fixed.

Also, both here and the regular chess diagram, I don't think the labels of the files and ranks need to be on the top and right side - along the left and bottom only would be better. Bubba73 (You talkin' to me?), 18:53, 17 May 2010 (UTC)

Forgetting the issue with the labels, the template looks perfectly fine here. What fonts / size of font / browser are you using? Headbomb {talk / contribs / physics / books} 22:23, 17 May 2010 (UTC)
I'm using larger fonts, but changing the font size doesn't affect it. It was OK until today. The problem is with "small" only and it started today. Bubba73 (You talkin' to me?), 23:06, 17 May 2010 (UTC)
It is that way in Firefox but not IE nor Chrome. Bubba73 (You talkin' to me?), 00:43, 18 May 2010 (UTC)
Is it better now? Headbomb {talk / contribs / physics / books} 00:58, 18 May 2010 (UTC)
No, and I tried reloading and purging the cache. Judging by eye, in Firefox the small squares are as tall as the regular squares, but not as wide. Bubba73 (You talkin' to me?), 01:00, 18 May 2010 (UTC)

What about now? Headbomb {talk / contribs / physics / books} 01:14, 18 May 2010 (UTC)

No, still the same problem. Bubba73 (You talkin' to me?), 01:17, 18 May 2010 (UTC)
Here File:Screenshot castling.jpg is a screenshot from castling which shows a regular diagram and a small one, which has the problem. Bubba73 (You talkin' to me?), 01:22, 18 May 2010 (UTC)

problem with white dotsEdit

Today white dots are not showing up correctly on SMALL chess diagrams. They are OK on regular diagrams. Bubba73 (You talkin' to me?), 14:44, 5 June 2010 (UTC)

This has been fixed. Bubba73 (You talkin' to me?), 16:14, 5 June 2010 (UTC)

Font sizeEdit

Did you know that your template looks wrong on Firefox with an increased font size? I use font size 26, instead of the default which I think is 16. The upper diagram of the two in the previous section has the first rank labeled as 2 instead of 1, and the 8th rank is labeled as 7; all the rank numbers are vertically spread out further than the squares. All the pieces are half a square too low. The pawn, for instance, has its base on c4 and its top on c5. The lower diagram is half as bad as the upper diagram; that is, the same problem but less displacement. Diagrams throughout Wikipedia have similar problems. The problem disappears when using Explorer instead of Firefox or when reducing the font size. It occurs on both a Windows 8 and a Windows XP computer. 67.160.69.105 (talk) 05:07, 19 August 2013 (UTC)
