Ongoing games are no longer displayed on main page. Not sure if this is intended. I found that feature very useful.

I had to disable that feature for now, sorry. It will be back up in the future.

Is this related to the "Game of the Week" feature not working right now?

Because whenever I try to click on a completed game, I get:

"The game viewer is temporarily offline. Sorry for the inconvenience."

Yes, that's offline too. At some point in the future I will post a more detailed explanation. Unfortunately right now it's not possible to give more explanation, for a number of reasons.

And those reasons are?

(just kidding!)

The new game viewer is up now. It might still have some bugs, but it's better than nothing.

I finally added a live game viewer to the home page. You should be able to review all the moves of games in progress, and you can flip the board by pressing the 'f' key or clicking the e7 square.

A live game viewer? That sounds great, waiting for a game in progress to enjoy that.

Cool! Some of the other "function squares" appear promising, too, e. g. sophisticated searches. A little bug: I cannot login from the main page right now, i. e. I cannot enter the letter "p" in the login form. Works on other pages, though, like "interested players".

OK, I disabled the shortcut keys so that they don't conflict with the login form.

I am thinking about moving the live games somewhere else, perhaps to the "pending games" page, so that they don't clutter the home page.

Login form still not working for me from the main page. I use Firefox 25.0.1.

It should be fixed now.

Also can you link the forward and backward button in the game viewer to right and left arrows respectively on the keyboard. This works only on the game viewer for finished games, but not live ones. Going through the games by using the mouse button makes too much noise than using the arrow keys in the office :P.

Hi Wil,

Many thanks for your work on the live games section! I find it very useful, when on the go and just looking at games every few minutes.

I have one more feature request: can you add current clock for both players? I don't need it to be updated live. Just after every move or page refresh. Ideally when scrolling back through game moves, I would like the clock to show the times after the move currently displayed.
