Solution - How to access the NYTimes crossword through Cruciverb?
« on: September 01, 2015, 04:51:40 PM »
Hey all,
Kevin, our admin, already addressed this issue and posted it in January 2015...... but, I cannot find that post.
I am hoping he'll be gracious enough to repost the solution here under this new Forum Subject....so that new users might find the solution simply?

or,,,,, can anyone share where the older post is located, please?
Thanks in advance.
hmmmm, gonna try using a message icon to see if that works better.

actually - - here is the specific error received when using Internet Explorer:

This error (HTTP 403 Forbidden) means that Internet Explorer was able to connect to the website, but it does not have permission to view the webpage.

For more information about HTTP errors, see Help.

Make sure you have logged into the NYT website recently to establish your credentials. When you do, a "cookie" is saved on your computer and as long as that cookie is there and has not expired, you should be able to click a link from anywhere (including cruciverb.com) and get the puzzle.

So that's pretty much it:

1) Log into the NYT website with a valid userid/pass
2) Try to access the crossword
3) If your subscription has expired, renew it on the NYT site ($39 a year, I think)
4) Once your NYT subscription is in place, try to get the puzzle from a different site, such as cruciverb.com
