Publishing WatchBot games

WatchBot games can be published on external websites. So you can embed your best game on your blog.

How to do it

Find the game you want to publish (using usual search form), then click the link named how to publish this game on your website (available on the bottom of the page, below the moves and comments), and follow the instructions.

Simple example

The following HTML code:

<iframe width="540" height="300"
      frameborder="1" scrolling="auto"
      src="/mk/watchbot/game_mini/1018421"
      style="margin: 0.5em 0">
<p><a href="/mk/watchbot/game/1018421">Click to view the game</a></p>
</iframe>

results in:

Customization

Edit the HTML to fine-tune the frame size and margin, and possibly to disable a border.

Use parameter like ?pieces=Fantasy&background=Blue to change the way the board is displayed. For the list of available pieces see the configuration screen (just use the piece and background names as written there).

For example, the following HTML (note frameborder="0" and extra parameters appended to src):

<iframe width="540" height="300"
      frameborder="0" scrolling="auto"
      src="/mk/watchbot/game_mini/1035979?pieces=Fantasy&background=Blue"
      style="margin: 0.5em 0">
<p><a href="/mk/watchbot/game/1035979">Click to view the game</a></p>
</iframe>
