  • Hi!

    I am having problem too, when I use the plugin, pgn does not load correctly, even using the example in this page.

    here is how it appears, what should be happening?

    thanks in advance,


    pellanda, do you have html inside of you pgn? The documentations says: “Note that HTML tags are stripped from the PGN data, removing all text between “<” and “>”. Please make sure your PGN data does not contain “<” and “>” characters.”


    this is the PGN I am using for test:

    [pgn height=500 initialHalfmove=16 autoplayMode=none]

    [Event “World championship”]
    [Site “Moscow URS”]
    [Date “1985.10.15”]
    [Round “16”]
    [White “Karpov”]
    [Black “Kasparov”]
    [Result “0-1”]

    but I have noticed another problem, it is something with my theme, because when I changed to default that come with wordpress, it works, I sent a message to developer of the theme, but I am stil waiting an answer.

    thanks in advance,

    Which theme are you trying to use?
    If the theme is free, I could try simulating the problem and finding a workaround.

    looked at your site, the iframe created by the plugin is missing proper height and width parameters, it looks like

    <iframe src='...longUrlHere...' frameborder='0' scrolling='no' marginmargin>

    while it should be

    <iframe src='...longUrlHere...' frameborder='0' width='100%' height='302' scrolling='no' marginheight='0' marginwidth='0'>

    It looks like your theme removes all height='xxx' and width='xxx' strings from the html.

    Thank you, I wonder why the free theme Themolio does that in some games and not others?
    This game is displayed properly:

    LIPEAD-40 Reporte # 5

    Where would I go to edit those properties?

    I setup a new install with the themolio theme and with a variety of chessboards I can’t reproduce your error.

    Do you have any other plugin installed? If you do, you should try disabling each temporarily and see if the problem disappears, please make sure you always get a fresh page instead of a cached page after each change.

    If you find any other plugin conflicting with Embed Chessboard, please let me know.

    Hi pgn4web,

    I am using Magnovus, from themeforest, it is not free, if I can help in another way, I can give you access to my admin panel to take a look, I am still waiting some answer from the developer of the theme.

    Thanks in advance.
