    Log out of your 2nd device, then log in with your email and password (not social media details.)

    Then send site feedback with your second account name, and I will close that account for you.

    Thank you all, I can see some of you really have played most (if not all) of your moves on the beta since made available. Very helpful. I have one more update to make, then will look look at pushing this into production later next week if no further errors present themselves. As a precaution, timeouts maybe suspended for a short period when this happens.

    Once that is complete (and bedded in), phase 2 can start, which is the beta.redhotpawn.com domain name will then be reassigned to a new server along with a further build of the RHP code. (The current beta is running on the existing production server in parallel.)

    You can safely ignore that for now. The beta is effectively a separate web site, and all the images in the blog need to reference the production site blog images - which they are currently not.

    No, it doesn't. At least, not yet.
    The work is done, it just needs to be "glued" together...!

    Browser Samsung Internet v. 12.1.4.3
    Browser Chrome also has the problem on the same tablet.
    Can you check this again please? Thanks.

    I'm currently using a Samsung chromebook (the screen is probably a 10-12 inch screen, so not particularly large). The main reason I posted my original post is that this is only happening on the beta and not the normal site, which I'm guessing was not intended (though I could be wrong).
    Currently can't explain this! It could be because of a minor version update to a library we use, but right now, I can't reproduce it.

    I use the beta site on a 10" Android tablet in landscape mode.
    Captured pieces show up in a single line, white first, instead of in two separate lines as before.

    @Kewpie
    Do you know which version of Android you are using, because I am not seeing this?

    edit : Android 9/Chrome on a Tablet (emulated) doesn't reproduce the problem either.

    The one thing I haven't actually added yet to the new board interface code! I often forget how popular this method is.

    edit : Just to be clear, this beta has the current board code. All UI elements are the same as before.

    Maybe browser moves are different to the way you move pieces in the Android app, but for me it's worthwhile launching the app because of the moving pieces functionality. Cheers.
    Both are "drag and drop" and should be equivalent, the only difference being that the web interface permits clicking a piece, and then a target tile in two actions too.

    When the new board UI code is rolled out in the near future (the work is complete already) I would very much like your input on that if possible.

    In case you were concerned that this has gone AWOL, I decided to update the whole RHP code base to help the integration with the new blitz code/variant support. Unfortunately, that process took significantly longer than expected!

    See Thread 187083 for more about this.

    Thanks, I could see error, but not the source of it. Fix incoming...

    Another build has now been uploaded. I'm confident no issues were introduced, but there is always potential for problems, of course.

    Earlier I stated that the beta should function exactly as the current live version. This is no longer true, as the club pages have had a few tweaks in response to some recent feedback I requested from an active club manager. (Thank you @lstcyr)

    Other than the club code, everything should be the same though currently.

    It appears @divegeester hit a problem twice, can you provide any details?
    @divegeester - responded this was the search bug too.

    I notice that a forum search returns zilch.
    I.e. https://beta.redhotpawn.com/board/search.php?authorname=orangutan just gets me an empty response (probably not such a bad thing, but also yields nothing for other users).
    Thanks, missed that one. Fixed.
