    Perhaps I`m doing something wrong, but so far I have not been able to castle, - left or right. I have checked neither of the pieces involved have ever moved during the game, I am not castling out of check, I am not castling into check, I am not castling through check.My opponent castles, but come my turn, it won`t let me do it. Any suggestions please?

    ps (edit): perhaps you can tell us the gameid so that someone here in the forum can chack where the mistake could be... (it should work very well: the RHP-code is perfect!)

    Re Castling: Game ID 381669 with Grayswandir. Around move 14 they castled, and around move 25 I wanted to, but could not. Again around move 27 I tried to castle the other way and could not. Thanks for help. I moved the king 2 spaces toward the castle and attempted to place the castle the other side of the king.Many thanks Unicorn

    Right. Move the King the two squares FIRST in the direction of the castle. Do not try to move the rook. It will have moved automatically after you click move and the page refreshes.

    Re Castling. WOW! Thank you so much. I moved the king first, but then tried to move the castle, and it just put me back where I started. So now, next game I have to take a `leap of faith` - move the king, then press `move` - and trust it will do the rest. I am sure it will.
