Puzzlemix has just moved to a brand new web server. This should mean a faster response and an end to the occasional delays when submitting or loading a puzzle.

If you spot any problems, please let me know!

Gareth, puzzlemix

when I type in it's automatically sending me to brainedup which isn't where I want to go.

I'm not sure it's serever related, and not sure either wether it's intended or not, but when I change between solution and pencilmarks de dynamically update clues aid switches back and forth (on for pencilmarks off for solution). Very annoying.

It will be due to the recent change to support iOS 8, where I stopped the browser resetting the input focus after each change - this was causing the keyboard to pop-up. Now it only resets it when you press TAB.

I see you are using Firefox, but I can't reproduce this problem. Can you let me know exactly how to trigger it, and on which puzzle it happens? Are you pressing SPACE to toggle? Can you let me know the sequence of events to follow after opening a puzzle which makes it happen?

I've just tried it from Chorme and it seems OK. I rarely use Firefox, but I'll try to reproduce it. I've used space to toggle.

Just tried but I can't reproduce either.

With Kakuro 1339 I have tried several times to make a comment and each time I get the page rejecting it. Whereas with others I have been able to make a comment without difficulty. I'm on Google Chrome.
And this has worked too!!

Hi Elisabeth,

Ah... I think I know what the problem is. It's not the puzzle, but it's rejecting use of double-quotes since I moved to the new server. If you submit your comment without any " marks I'm sure it will work!

Meanwhile, I will fix this.

Okay, this is now fixed - thank you very much for pointing this out, Elisabeth!

Meanwhile, kocos, I will revert part of the change I made to the player which clearly did lead to an issue, so hopefully this should never happen again.

Hi kocos,

I have now changed the player so that it works as before once you press a keyboard key. It now detects whether you use an actual keyboard or not to configure this behaviour, in order to work around one of the (many!) bugs in iOS 8.

Therefore, please let me know if you see this problem again - but I think this will not happen again, I hope.

Gareth, puzzlemix
