FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

Because my forum was used rather seldom, I have stopped it and have replaced it with this FAQ page.

I receive many requests to Swiss manager and Chess-Results.com. Here I will publish questions of general interest.

15 How can tournaments be published on the own homepage?

The simplest, fast and professional way to publish the tournament results in Internet is, to upload the Swiss-Manager file to http://chess-results.com/ and set a link from your homepage to Chess-Results or use an IFrame on your homepage.

Chess-Results.com is a dedicated, powerful and reliable server only for chess-tournaments and closely co-operates with Swiss-Manager.

The upload to chess-results.com is very easy. Swiss-Manager menu-Item "Internet/Automatic upload to Chess-Results". This service is free.
