    I'm sure this has been answered before but I couldn't find it,

    and the FAQ doesn't state how to go about it.

    So how do I promote my pawn?

    Thanks

    Once the pawn hits the back rank your are then given a choice as to what to promote to.

    I think that you have to submit your move before being given the option

    The first step is to get the pawn to that back rank though ...

    I think that recently it was changed so that you get the choice before you hit the move button, but I could be wrong.

    Well ever time I submit the move,

    It denies it and draws red squares.

    And I cant find where you can specify the type of promotion

    Oh well...

    Is it a legal move?
    Check for checks ...

    are you sure you're making a legal move? you could be in check, or the pawn could be pinned to you king....

    If it is this game:

    http://www.redhotpawn.com/gameanalysis/boardhistory.php?gameid=3255868

    then you are currently not allowed to move that pawn.
    You should figure out why all by yourself though.

    good luck :-)

    I am silly at times!

    Thanks all,

    I'm already losing because of a simple mistake and I can't even spot a check!

    Must need sleep

    Thanks again
