Chess replayer can it be embedded in html? (3 posts)

    I want to start a wordpress blog for a chess coaching project with school children that I'm working on. I have two sites now so I've tired to do this on them and it's not working out. I would like to be able to insert a chess board that replays a game within a post.

    An example of what it looks like is here.
    The person hosting this game has a wordpress blog too but he set this up as a standalone. The output to display this game is from a program called Chessbase and basically it creates an htm file that self playing. Of course there are sub directories that have the pieces and what not. However the first obstacle is getting the htm file into a post and having it displayed properly.


    I can provide all of the files if somone would like to test and see if this can be done.

    I'm so sorry to have to ask for help but I'm so very new at wordpress...

    If you placed the chess game files in another folder on your site, you could possibly embed them in your posts using the iframe element.
