    send feedback if it's still not recognizing your promotion.

    A search on Public Games throws up a queen in the appropriate spot, and a queen promotion in the game history, but also reports an error in the game history. Looks as if there's nothing you can do until you get a reaction from feedback.

    If by promote you are talking about moving the pawn forward.
    Promote to me means crossing the board with a pawn to the other side and Promoting to a Queen or something else.

    If you are talking about promoting the pawn to challenge the Queen after move six it's because you would be in check by the bishop if you were to do that, so as you can't put yourself into check that is the why.

    Can't see anything amiss so make the capture, submit move and the site will then prompt you for the promotion - Queen, Rook, Knight etc.

    Thanks Skeeter, now I know how to do it. I was trying to promote before submitting the move.

    Glad you still pulled off a win.

    This question comes up a bit too often. I'm just not sure RHP can prompt the user to pick a promotion piece BEFORE the submit move button is clicked.
