Castling in Chess960

Hey Cubers
I play Chess960 now and then but I have trouble castling. I've tried to castle the normal way when the pieces between king and rook have been cleared out. I have never succeeded. I even started to think that maybe it wasn't possible on this platform but then I had an opponent today who did it no problem. I asked him how he did it but he didn't reply. So the question remains how do you castle in Chess960.
Thanks
Ken

Hi,

You need to place your king on top of the rook.

-Sansen
I sometimes drift over this way,, but not very often

all you have to do is to place your king over your castle..but don't forget.. there must be NO pieces at all between your castle and your king..
