OGS problems also have this shuffle and rotate and flip colours bugfeature but it makes sharing and discussing problems next to impossible. There are many Reddit posts along the lines "help me with this problem plz, it says if black plays c1 White D1 kills but what about a2!?" to which the baffled audience respond "but it's White to play you idiot!", "What do you mean c1, the problem is in the top right corner and White starts t17". Etc.

A solution would be to encode the problem id and rotation etc in the URL for the user to copy (and have a share link), which with modern browsers you can set from JavaScript without causing a page reload

I've now added a permalink to each problem (next to the top of the board) that goes to a page that contains only that one problem, and it is not randomly reoriented.

So this way you can share the link and safely talk about coordinates as well.


Please let me know if this works.
