How do I find something in the wiki?

I am struggling to get my puzzle published. What do I have to do?

When you save the crossword you will get an indication in the top section whether your puzzle is ready for publishing. Next to each puzzle clue you will get an indication if there is an error. If you get a message like missing word(clues) NNNN over "answer" then you possibly need to add a clue. A fundamental crossword rule is that every word that crosses another word needs a clue. Two letters adjacent to each other require a clue in the direction of the two letters.

How do I create a new wiki page? (Full Members)

The best way is: Create a wiki link in an existing page where the target link does not have an existing page. Click on the link to create the page. (Another way is to use the 'Create page' link in the wiki menu)

Why is my new wiki page (link) not working?

If your link contains characters that aren't allowed, then the Wiki won't recognize it. In general, we use CamelCase (New words begin with capital letters instead of spaces). The following characters are allowed in wiki links:

  • Normal Ascii characters [a-zA-Z],
  • Numbers [0-9] and
  • The punctuation marks [.-_]
