At that point I only see the board with the players names and clocks. I cannot scroll down to enter my move manually, nor can I use my mouse to move a piece of mine.

Since this is not happening for me, this might be due to an issue with your particular web browser. I tried it with Brave, Chrome, Edge, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Vivaldi, and Waterfox and did not encounter the problem you described once. Try a different browser and see if you still have the problem. You could also try clearing your browser's cache.

I could email you my password

In case it had something to do with being signed in as the player, I temporarily replaced panther with fergus in the log, but I still didn't encounter the problem. If you can email me the source of the generated page when you have this problem, it may help me figure it out. There's also the chance, though it seems slim, that the problem is caused by being logged in as you. If you email me your password, I could look into that.

Quick Markdown Guide

By default, new comments may be entered as Markdown, simple markup syntax designed to be readable and not look like markup. Comments stored as Markdown will be converted to HTML by Parsedown before displaying them. This follows the Github Flavored Markdown Spec with support for Markdown Extra. For a good overview of Markdown in general, check out the Markdown Guide. Here is a quick comparison of some commonly used Markdown with the rendered result:

Top level header: <H1>

Block quote

Second paragraph in block quote

First Paragraph of response. Italics, bold, and bold italics.

Second Paragraph after blank line. Here is some HTML code mixed in with the Markdown, and here is the same <U>HTML code</U> enclosed by backticks.

Secondary Header: <H2>

  • Unordered list item
  • Second unordered list item
  • New unordered list
    • Nested list item

Third Level header <H3>

  1. An ordered list item.
  2. A second ordered list item with the same number.
  3. A third ordered list item.
Here is some preformatted text.
  This line begins with some indentation.
    This begins with even more indentation.
And this line has no indentation.
