Hi Skip,
the problem seems to be the width of the display window, and I am beginning to wonder if this is because I don't understand the significance of the numbers at the end of the string,

Would be delighted to be let know what I am doing wrong,

all the best, Take care and God Bless,

PS have been posting in the coaching thread and have been trying to set it up in a couple of posts without success, thanks again, M

Please post a screenshot

What do you mean a screenshot? I am not especially good at computers

but as an example

7k/5ppp/8/8/8/8/5PPP/7K w Q 1 54 22

What is it I am doing wrong?

all the best, God Bless,

It keeps asking about castling, but I have now figured that to display it the castling function must be dealt with somehow, the initial problem involved wrapping it in code tags,

all the best, Malcolm

I just put whatever values for now, but if you use a FEN generator or something it's a lot easier:
