It would be even nicer if instead of a button that shows you the GAME code so that you can copy-paste it, there would be a button 'Create Preset'. Which would send the HTML requests to the server (through AJAX calls) that are needed to open the preset edit page, and deposit the the code there as if the Save button was pressed. This should be technically possible, as the pages are on the same server.

Of course the user should then have to supply the name of the variant, and the name of the settings file first. But there could be text entries for those. The Wizard could in response display the link through which you can edit the created preset. Or perhaps open that preset in edit mode itself, in another browser window. The user would then only have to adapt the settings for the graphics (color, piece theme...).

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:
