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
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!
Can I advertise on this site?
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
advertising. I do not reply to unsolicited emails about placing adverts on this site.
How does the content of the mobile and the desktop versions differ?
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!
