PGN Files

New header field [editors = "Comma separated Usernames"]

Since January 2017, if you are logged in and your user name matches either player or your username is one of those listed in the [Editors "EditorName1,EditorName2"] , you can click to open the PGN and edit the PGN directly.
Click on the Wikipedia icon to read about the PGN format. To publish your own chess games here, you will need to upload chess games in PGN format. You can edit PGN files with a simple text editor. You just need to understand the format. Pay attention to the idea of nested variations. We use the code $220 to place a diagram of the position at that point in the game. Each diagram should appear with a green border. If it appears with a red border, there's either a problem with your PGN file or a bug in our reader !!. For example the moves in the game may be illegal or make no sense to our PGN VIEWER

All you need to worry about is your PGN file. The rest should be taken care of by the biscuits CMS system.
