What is the problem with the chess diagram template? SunCreator (talk) 00:38, 20 November 2009 (UTC)
Actually this might be a problem with PDF rendering. To see the problem, please try the following: Go to Chess article, press "Download as PDF" (link at left). Chess diagrams in PDF has some layout problems: black cells have white margins, file/rank numbers and letters are misaligned. Andreas Kaufmann (talk) 19:33, 20 November 2009 (UTC)
Pretty sure this bug is fixed. Chess looks fine to me. Headbomb {ταλκκοντριβς – WP Physics} 20:16, 5 February 2010 (UTC)


  • Fix chess diagram template.
  • Cleanup chess variant article (remove non-notable variants and duplicate entries). Add section 'Historical variants', like in book.
  • Xiangqi: game infobox is not shown.—Preceding unsigned comment added by Andreas Kaufmann (talkcontribs) 22:42, 25 March 2009
