RPB Chessboard: Add Chess Games to WordPress

As someone who played chess professionally for a little while, I have a hard time letting go of that beautiful game. Writing about chess is not particularly lucrative but quite a lot of fun. You can’t run a quality chess site if you don’t know how to embed chessboards and offer analysis of the latest games (for that you can always rely on Houdini, Stockfish, Gull, Hiarcs, or Junior).  RPB Chessboard happens to be a handy plugin that makes it easier to add chess diagrams to your site.
