Syntax[golygu]

There are several standard chess diagram templates:

There are also templates for chess variants:

The syntax is basically the same for all of them.

{{Chess diagram
| <alignment> (param #1)
| <header>    (#2) 
| size =
| numbers =
| letters =
| <a8> | <b8> | ... | <h8>  (#3 to ...
| <a7> | <b7> | ... | <h7>
...
| <a1> | <b1> | ... | <h1>  ( ... #66)
| <footer> (#67)
}}

Parameters:

  • <alignment> – defines horizontal alignment (floating) of the whole table, must be tright or tleft (or nothing)
  • <header> – the text which appears above the diagram, may be empty;
  • size - specifies the size of each square in pixels, the default is 26.
  • numbers - specifies whether the rows are numbered. Options are: left, right, both (default) or neither.
  • letters - specifies whether the columns are lettered. Options are: top, bottom, both (default) or neither.
  • <a8>, <b8>, ... <h1> – define corresponding squares of the chessboard, see below;
  • <footer> – the text which appears beneath the diagram, may be empty; optional – can be left out (currently not in the other templates)

A square is defined by the name of piece or empty parameter. The names of the pieces are those given in algebraic notation:

  • Chess kll45.svg Chess kld44.png Chess kdl44.png Chess kdd45.svg k = king
  • Chess qld44.png Chess qll44.png Chess qdd44.png Chess qdl44.png q = queen
  • Chess rll44.png Chess rld44.png Chess rdl44.png Chess rdd44.png r = rook
  • Chess bld44.png Chess bll44.png Chess bdd44.png Chess bdl44.png b = bishop
  • Chess nll44.png Chess nld44.png Chess ndl44.png Chess ndd44.png n = knight
  • Chess pld44.png Chess pll44.png Chess pdd44.png Chess pdl44.png p = pawn

There are also some fairy chess pieces available:

  • Chess all44.png Chess ald44.png Chess adl44.png Chess add44.png a = archbishop (knight + bishop compound)
  • Chess cld44.png Chess cll44.png Chess cdd44.png Chess cdl44.png c = chancellor (knight + rook compound)
  • Chess fll44.png Chess fld44.png Chess fdl44.png Chess fdd44.png f = upside-down king
  • Chess gld44.png Chess gll44.png Chess gdd44.png Chess gdl44.png g = upside-down queen
  • Chess mll44.png Chess mld44.png Chess mdl44.png Chess mdd44.png m = upside-down rook
  • Chess eld44.png Chess ell44.png Chess edd44.png Chess edl44.png e = upside-down bishop
  • Chess sll44.png Chess sld44.png Chess sdl44.png Chess sdd44.png s = upside-down knight
  • Chess hld44.png Chess hll44.png Chess hdd44.png Chess hdl44.png h = upside-down pawn
  • Chess zll44.png Chess zld44.png Chess zdl44.png Chess zdd44.png z = champion (for Omega Chess)
  • Chess wld44.png Chess wll44.png Chess wdd44.png Chess wdl44.png w = wizard (for Omega Chess)

These letters are combined with either "l" for Light=White, or "d" for Dark=Black. So "kl" is White's king, and "nd" is Black's knight.

An empty square is written either using underscores, spaces, or nothing at all. Two spaces are recommended.

  • Chess d45.svgChess l45.svg <space> = empty square

You can also use "xx" for a cross, "xo" for a black circle on an empty square or "oo" for a white one.

  • Chess xxd45.svgChess xxl45.svg xx = cross/x
  • Chess xod45.svgChess xol45.svg xo = black circle
  • Chess ood44.pngChess ool44.png oo = white circle

Numbers can also be added to squares by using "x0" for 0, "x1" for 1, "x2" for 2, ..., "x9" for 9.

  • Chess x0d45.svgChess x0l45.svg x0
  • Chess x1d45.svgChess x1l45.svg x1
  • Chess x2d45.svgChess x2l45.svg x2
  • Chess x3d45.svgChess x3l45.svg x3
  • Chess x4d45.svgChess x4l45.svg x4
  • Chess x5d45.svgChess x5l45.svg x5
  • Chess x6d45.svgChess x6l45.svg x6
  • Chess x7d45.svgChess x7l45.svg x7
  • Chess x8d45.svgChess x8l45.svg x8
  • Chess x9d45.svgChess x9l45.svg x9

Examples[golygu]

In the following examples the rows and columns are numbered. Because any text between "|=" and the next "|" is ignored, numbers and letters can be added without affecting output.
