Yet Another Chess Problem Database (and wiki, yes)

Discussing new features

In ru-chess-art. Knowledge of russian is required.

Run popeye button

Server-based popeye is integrated into the editor. Popeye is limited to 128M for hashtables, 30 sec max solution time and limited to display 8 solutions.
Note that you still can use options like "Intelligent" although they can not be saved.

Scheduled downtime will not be available on the 13th of April 2016 due to scheduled maintenance (OS upgrade).

PGN converter is added

The button can be found above the add/edit entry form. The coolest and most non-trivial feature is that it converts PGN short algebraic notation into the Popeye output notation that can be animated with py2web. Also it matches the PGN tags to the yacpdb fields:
Event - source;
Date - date;
White - authors;
Result - stipulation (+ or =);
FEN - algebraic;

YACPDB frontend update

Major new features:
- Py2Web (animated solutions) integration, example:
- Direct links to search results, example: Ninepin


Основные нововведения:
- Интеграция с Py2Web (анимированные решения), например:
- Прямые ссылки на результаты поиска, например: клетка Тамерлана

From Houston to LA

The database was moved to a different hosting company today. DNS generally needs 24 hours to update worldwide.

The new backend is a quite inexpensive VPS configured pretty differently compared to the old server, so there may be some problems with uptime, performance and general behavior. Please report.

This is what the new datacenter looks like from the outside:
