    I tried to change the style of the board, and now when I move, the move will not stay, and I show that it is still my move.

    What should I do?

    My guess is you are in check so the move is an illegal move hence not allowed.
    Do any pink squares appear ??

    If it is Game 6510734 then my commen appears to be right as you are in check and only a move taking you out of check is allowed.

    Pink squares appear when you attemp an illegal move eg you are in check and the move you are attempting to make is not getting you out of that check.

    You are right. I was in check! Couldn't tell too well because I changed the board style.

    I moved out of check, and all is well.

    Thank you.

    it appears to me that i have my opponent in check but the board is not recognizing this nor is it allowing me to make an alternate move, anyone help me here/

    I've looked at your games, and didn't find anything strange.

    The move control is, however, flawless. If it doesn't let you move, it has a good reason to.
