    Ok I have been using the site for some time now, but have recently got a new phone and have been doing most of my chess moves via it, on a Opera web browser. The problem I am now having is when I castle the rook never moves prior to me submitting the move.

    Ok this is not a big deal but is annoying at times does anyone know why this is?

    Cheers

    If you are using mobile.redhotpawn.com then a legacy board interface is used and the castle action is not shown until after the move has been submitted.

    Thanks Russ

    Ok cheers but this now also effects the moves I make on the main site. I understand that it will not work via the mobile, but it also happens when I am on the PC on the main www.redhotpawn.com site?

    Cheers

    don't know if this is what you're talking about but to castle move you're king not you're rook

    no that isn't wha he meant.
    Prior to clicking submit, when you move your king 2 spaces toward the rook, your rook leaps past your king thus prior to clicking he can see the successful castling.
    However, on his mobile (now also his PC) he moves the king 2 spaces with the rook remaining on it's original square until after he clicks on the submit button.

    Obviously good manners weren't taught as part of your education.
