Making moves - again

The problems with entering moves should now be resolved.

The behaviour of the game page changed a little (this time intentionally):

After clicking on the target square the resulting position is displayed immediately. Hence, there is little need for the Preview button. Nevertheless, you still have to click on the Move button to actually make the move.

Minor changes have also been applied to the error handling. I am sure, you will discover these soon...

Hello! Welcome back.

Personally I prefer the previous method of making moves. In the previous system when I made a move to make a preview and I deleted the move I could immediately make another move, now not only the piece moves right away making more difficult to se another possible moves but also appears that message that this colour is not to move and to try again. The trails of the opponent piece moved and my own is also a bit confusing. When I make the correction of the move the page reloads, if I get to the page making a move in another game it asks if I want to resend the information.

What I ask you is: Put it like it was before, pleaaaaaaaaaaaase!

Best regards,

Ricardo Soares

It is very useful to be able to move the pieces around but a reset button would be nice.

I have two comments..

First, I agree with Ricardo. I really dislike the pieces moving before the move button is clicked. Please put it back the way it was.

Second, I REALLY dislike being on the top of the board while it is my move. It is VERY disorienting!! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE Fix this ASAP!!!!

Thank you in advance,

Yes, I agree. It is absolutely imperative that the system be restored. VERY VERY IMPORTANT! Good luck, I know you're working hard on it.
