It seems old (>= TL48) games do not open in PGN viewer. I get the following message, for example:

Warning: fopen(games/T48/12326.pgn): failed to open stream: Permission denied in /home/teamleague/public_html/php/include.php on line 583 file games/T48/12326.pgn could not be opened

That should be fixed now.

Woah, that was a really quick fix. Thanks.

In future I will expect all of my problems to be solved within 3 hours :)

This problem still exists with a different error:

file games/T60/20247.pgn could not be opened

Thanks for the notification.

We are aware of that issue, but it will take time (a bit more than three hours.)

Hi jaberwock,

if you need help with the coding please let me know. I would be glad to help.

Kind Regards

I think in terms of coding fix isn't too hard. From what I can gather basically display uses pgn4web and I think location of pgn files is pointing at wrong location so when it tries to open file it gets an error.

Having said that I'd assume whoever does fix it needs access to website that could be admin level.

If looking for a fix it could be handy to compare with to see what is different that could give a quick indication of a fix

I agree !

@KRMCHESS... I believe the files aren't stored to begin with. See for example the two following URL's

The first is your example from an earlier tourney where the file was stored and it does work. The second is from the current tourney where the file is not stored.

This should be fixed now. Please report any further errors.
