I Decided to Make this Widget because I prefer Chess to the Arcade games. Having had A Online Chess Game Site for Years @ Chessrally.com I thought this would be nice for those who lack Publishing Content or enjoy Chess as I do. Also It may attract Members and eventually get them to eventually Participate on your site.

What is nice about widgets, you can activate or deactivate them at will.

Author INFO:


Before using this software be sure to read the license agreement in the LICENSE.TXT file Included.

The applet has been made freeware, you may download it and use it on your own website.
To use it download the zip file and place it in a directory on your web server.

English or French

I have 2 Screen Shots of Possibilities.

1) Is for 3 Columns and Above Primary Content. With The Chat box below it.

2) Is at the Bottom Below Primary Content (out of the way) with a Second Chat Box Below it, so I can Play and Chat at the Same time.


Go to ACP ---> CMS ---> Widgets and make a Wiget and name it. Use STATIC HTML
Configure and Add this Code.

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Then use Layout manager and Place it where you wish. The Screen shots may give you an Idea.

I dropped the Zip in the Forum folder, as it doesn't matter as long as your Url points to it.
you do not need to un zip it.

I also re-sized it to 350 x 400 from 400 x 400 so it will fit in a 3 column layout. Anything less than 350 x 400 will hide part of the Board.

being a java applet, I would not think it would use a lot of resource.

Down Load the zip ( 60 kbs ) and Drop in your server and double ck that your url points to it.

Please Mark Installed So I know you enjoy a variety of Widgets.

Good Luck Trying to Beat it. ;)

Can I ask, can 2 people play against each other? It an interesting hack to have this on my site, simply because I love playing chess :)

No sorry, as it would consume a lot of resource and your Host Server may not allow it. It is Rated 1600 and changes sides when you hit start Game. It also will not tell you if your in Check Mate. But you will know when it says Score 10,000 and you can't move the King. LOL

Also this can be embedded in a template but I try not to do such things. :p

Also Its great when Checking the site from the Office and not much going on to Sneak in a Game LOL The Chat Widget I made is a good Idea to Put Below it if you Put it at the Bottom, friendly Game and Chat with Coffee

Since I uploaded it I have had an unsafe warning appear when I start my computer, is this thing safe?

tbworld 27 Aug 2013 04:48

What does the warning say... and where is the unsafe warning coming from?

Toorak Times 27 Aug 2013 04:54

It says an unsigned application wants to access my computer, and it doesn't know where its from and asks me if I want to run anyway, only started to appear immediately after I uploaded the chess

Its a java Script warning, I get it also. I believe Java needs Updating, also Firefox is great for giving out java warnings.
