Templatedia Chess


This plugin adds a new template to Templatedia (required for this plugin to work) that allows you to display a chess diagram in your posts or pages.

It is a replication of a Wikipedia template and accepts parameters in the exact same format.

This plugin was originally coded as an example for how to add a template to Templatedia via a plugin.
