Thanks for all you do. I had followed your directions and logged into cruciverb.com and still had problems. Then I cleared my cache and cookies and now it seems to be working  :)

I think he deserves some credit for working 6 theme answers into the puzzle.

General Discussion / Re: How do I Export to .jpz in Crossword Compiler?
« Last post by stickler on March 30, 2014, 06:38:39 PM »
If you have CCv9, then go to File->Web Export-<Export to files. Select Java in Applet Type (bottom right), then zipped XML. You will be prompted to save an HTML file, but the process also creates a .jpz file of the same name. Previous versions I think had Java with optional zip. Just make sure you select zip.

Hope that helps.

Thank you, admin.  I went to this website via Safari on my iPad and today's LA Times downloaded successfully.  In my opinion, your message on the homepage would be better understood if you clearly state we must access your site with our browser and not through the app.  Thanks, again.  :)

Apps are not supposed to be picking up the puzzle. I locked down the security so that they can't. This is in accordance with the agreement we have with the LA Times. They are kind enough to offer the puzzle to cruciverb.com members exclusively. To prove you are, you must log into the site with a valid username and password and click oon the LA Times link with your web browser.

If app developers do figure out a way to circumvent the required process and get the puzzle directly, I will have no choice but to stop offering the puzzle on behalf of the Times. Everybody loses. :-(

Folks, please read the message on the homepage. Third party links will NOT work. Getting the puzzle through an app which tries to circumvent authentication will no longer work.

You must log into the homepage, then click on the "La Times" puzzle on the right hand side.

I will be working on a hand-held device-friendly version of the homepage soon. In the meantime, you must log into cruciverb.com using the browser in your phone or pad, then click on the link.

THEME:   Exchanging B for C in phrases changes their meanings, orally
   
GOOD ONES:    
Sketched a Gibb brother?   DREW BARRY [with C instead of B, it would be the actor]   
Qualifying exam for opera school?  VOCAL BOARD [with C it would sound like Chord[ {"Examiners for opera school" might have been better}    
What you can't get if you pass the bar?   A DRINK   
Confrontational opening?   NON [making it the opposite]   
Base shade?   KHAKI [Army base]   
Glower?   EMBER [didn't read it with long O --- missed the question mark]   
One helping swingers?   BATBOY [not party-goers or apes]   
   
BTW:   
Undersea party pooper?   MARINE BORE [the clue makes no sense, but "Undersea drill" does] {I smell an editor's touch.}   
   
I immeditely recalled the songs MARIA and MR. LEE, but I'm sorry and a bit embarrassed about the latter --- a brain worm.   
   
Haven't heard "Have A COW" in a "coon's age."   
   
Lotto variant   BEANO [got me on this one; I thought the gas reliever pills, a motto of which might be "In Beano nary gas."    :-[
   
RATING:  ;D ;D   
Three grins = Loved it; Two grins = Enjoyed it; One grin = A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Not much fun
