    Fen diagrams showing starting position

    All Fen positions posted on ChessChat are being displayed as the starting position.

    I posteed one in the form
    FEN Viewer
    and it did the same thing.

    A few years back they worked, now what is happening?

    I tried looking at some old threads to see if older fen positions work. They didn't. I think it has something to do with the site maintenance.

    I have raised the FEN problem with STML.

    Looks like VB is adding html encoding automatically, perhaps a security issue. Will try and sort it out this week.

    This should be fixed. Turns out Firefox was double HTML encoding the fen string.. Not sure why it would randomly start to do that. I'm just double decoding it back, so looks like it's fixed.
