All decent sites should have an FAQ page so here it is. If your question
is not answered here don’t hesitate to contact me.
How do I get the puzzles to print on one page? |
Will there ever be any interactive puzzles?
Can I use these puzzles in my magazine?
Can I advertise on this site?
How does the content of the mobile and the desktop versions differ?
I have designed the puzzle pages so that both grids and clues appear in a decent size on screen and on paper. I am aware that the downside of this is that the crosswords need two sheets of paper when you print them. If you want to accommodate the puzzles on a single sheet, the best thing do is use the Scale option in the Print menu of your browser. If you scale the page down to 80% the puzzle should print on a single page. If the puzzle has a lot of clues you may need to scale down to 70%. Note: this is impractical for the Jumbo puzzles, which would require shrinking to a ridiculously small size.
I have no plans to introduce such a feature at present. I believe that crosswords are far more fun as a pen and paper exercise!

I am glad to link to other crossword sites, and also include a few free plugs for companies and services which have impressed me. I do NOT accept any form of advertising for other sites or products, even if the advertiser is willing to pay. I am pleased to have made this site an advert-free zone in a world which already contains far too much advertising. I do not reply to unsolicited emails about placing adverts on this site.
The mobile version contains all of the crossword articles and most of the non-crossword articles that appear on the desktop view site, in larger fonts to make them more readable on a small screen. I have put PDF versions of the most recent of the crosswords, mine and those from guest setters, on the mobile site as well. I haven’t put all the puzzles on the mobile site because they are print-only (non-interactive) and if you want to print the puzzles, you’re most likely using a PC anyway.
Using “request desktop/mobile view” on your phone will not change one view to another because there are two separate sites rather than a single responsive site. That may not be considered cool among the techies but I’m afraid I have neither the expertise nor the time to create a whole new site from scratch!
