Chessdiagram converts FEN notation or an alternative 8×8-layout to a chess diagram using HTML with 8×8 images. The syntax can be localized - completely. English and German is available.
To achieve this i embedded PHP code from vyvy at http://www.vyvy.org/ (obsolete) which completely renders the chess diagram. The rest was simply a plugin template extended with the localization features and optimizing the chess images.
Many thanks to this really great plugin. Further information is available on the original website (obsolete). It was primarily developed for b2evolution.
Copy the FEN syntax between <chessdiagram></chessdiagram> or simply add an 8×8 ASCII board with the English abbreviations (kqrbnp).
You can add advanced options with “(flags)” before the chessdiagram (in both variants). Flags can be:
Fields can be marked with the character “x”.
In the german translation TBLR can be achived with OULR (oben, unten, links, rechts) and “w” or “s” is used instead of l or d (weiss, schwarz). It is up to the administrator of your site.

Install the current release with the plugin manager.
I included a folder “toolbar” with an image and a localized diff for the toolbar.php.

Is there an easy way to suppress the FEN notation? In the standard installation, the string describing the board is always displayed before the board!
