That would save a lot of time.
Upload it to what? You can copy the FEN or bring in the PGN usually, but it depends what you're uploading from and into... Can you give some clarification?
I mean upload it here. Like if I want to put a super long game in here, like above. What is the FEN or the PGN?
If you're trying to upload a chess.com game or a game played through most computer engines, the computer produces a FEN and a PGN file.The FEN is a string of letters and numbers that describes one particular board position, so that would work if you wanted to show one board position rather than the entire game that led up to it. In the example you provided, you have several moves starting from the beginning of a game, so to copy a board like that you'd want the PGN, which would import/export the whole game, including annotations (if applicable).On a chess.com correspondence chess game, the FEN and PGN of that game are easy to find--in the panel right beside the board (not sure about live games but that would be easy to find too). You can also get the PGN for a lot of games at once from your archive of games, saving a lot of time if you want to transfer them to a personal database or something.
When you try to include an analysis board in a forum post, you get a prompt box asking first what kind of board you want to include, and then the next page asks if you want to start with a blank board, use a FEN string, or use a PGN. That's where you paste the PGN you've lifted from a game (assuming you want the whole game), or the FEN (if you just want one position).Let me know if I'm not being clear...
Thanks! That helped a lot.
After I've saved the PGN and tried to open it, it says "Adobe Reader could not open it because it was not a supported file type or the file has been damaged."
Is something wrong here?
Open it in notepad, or any text editor
 have you had a look at this: http://www.chess.com/forum/view/help-support/a-guide-to-posting-your-games-on-chesscom
You can use notepad++ to edit it as plain text, or any pgn reader/editor (Arena, scid, chessx) to edit it using a board.
