This site doesn't include puzzle-making software. Not sure if you have to be a member to access the Puzzle Database, but from there you can click on Grids. If your theme has, say, four 11-letter entries - insert those numbers (11, 11, 11, 11) and then click Submit to see examples of grids with that number count.

Today's Puzzles / December 1 crosswords: The buzz on Woody
« Last post by Thomps2525 on December 01, 2015, 01:53:13 PM »
My subject line, "The buzz on Woody," is for all you Toy Story fans. Now that my daily bad pun is out of the way, I can talk about today's crossword by Jeffrey Wechsler, which commemorates the birth of filmmaker Woody Allen, who was born Allan Stewart Konigsberg on December 1, 1935 in the Bronx and legally changed his name to Heywood Allen when he was 17. Woody is a nickname for Heywood. Today's puzzle, which begins with WOODY and ends with ALLEN, includes the titles of five films which he wrote and directed: BANANAS, SLEEPER, STARDUSTMEMORIES, MIDNIGHTINPARIS and MIGHTYAPHRODITE.

For the "Mister Magus Not-Used-In-English File": ORO, OSA and SEI ("Sardinian six").

Five clues in today's Daily News crossword by Kurt Mueller are "Vampire's bane" numbers 1 through 5. Four of the answers are THEHOLYBIBLE, DIRECTSUNLIGHT, SILVERBULLET, and GARLICNECKLACE. The fifth answer is literal and occupies the center of the grid: HEART is horizontal and is crossed vertically by STAKE. Get it? "Stake through the heart." Very clever!

The "colorful" Universal crossword includes REDWHITEANDBLUE, YELLOWSTONEPARK and BLACKEYEDSUSANS.

The NEA crossword clued EONS with "Zillions of years." Merriam-Webster defines "zillion" as "an indefinitely large number." The word was first used in 1934 and is patterned after "million" and "billion." In 1947, Disney comic-book artist Carl Barks created the character of Scrooge McDuck, Donald Duck's wealthy uncle. In the book The Life & Times Of Scrooge McDuck, Scrooge's wealth is said to be "Five multiplujillion, nine impossibidillion, seven fantasticatrillion dollars and 16 cents." I'm guessing that's considerably more than a zillion.

Actually clicking on your links works.  Entering identical ones myself does not.
To prevent nonmembers from downloading the puzzles they have it set up so the request must originate from the cruciverb.com domain. Using the links posted in this forum satisfies that requirement. Typing the URL directly into you browser's address bar does not.

Thanks Phil.  When I tried with other dates, I always got:

Phil,
 Where/how did you find these links? Thank you!
The file name for the LAT puzzle has used that same format (lat+year+month+day.puz) for as long as I can remember so I just put in last week's dates.

Apparently the files are here on the server but the links to them haven't been posted yet because the homepage is still under construction.
