LA Times
« on: November 25, 2015, 09:53:10 AM »
Does anyone know if the LA Times across lite link and archive is gone for good, or it is going to be back once the site is finished rebuilding? It'd be nice to know what's going on!

Given that both the download link is not functioning and the LAT archive is gone, I suspect that LAT has cancelled its agreement with Cruciverb.

Then why would they have the link listed on the right side menu? Does anyone know? Is there any other site where you can interactively solve besides the Mensa, LAgametimes, and several others which all use the same format which is not user friendly.

Is there a way to learn definitively whether LAT puzzle is returning to Cruciverb? I emphatically agree that the online puzzle (non-AcrossLite) currently offered on the LAT site is lousy-to-the-point-of-unusable.
If Cruciverb is dropping it, I wish they'd lose the link.

 Since the "LA Times" link under "Today's Puzzles" now will download a .puz file if you are logged into the site, I suspect the archive of the last four weeks of the LA Times will be returning in a few days.  It is possible that the archive may not include puzzles before today's and will take four weeks to fill out, however.

Can you tell me where the new link is?  I still only see blanks on the home page.

My guess is the LA Times puzzles in Across Lite form will be back.  In the meantime, try: http://games.latimes.com/games/daily-crossword/

Also the LA Times archive web site is gone from the listing so cannot go back and get the older puzzles when they get online

I was able to download the Sunday, Nov. 29th LA Times .puz file from the cruciverb link. This was the first time in a couple weeks. But today, Monday, it wasn't available again. Hope we get it back soon!

Read the home page:

SITE IS BEING REBUILT. SOME THINGS ARE NOT
 
WORKING. BEAR WITH US.

and

Please note that the 3-month LAT puzzle archive is temporarily unavailable. It should be back very soon.




You can still get the puzzles at  http://games.latimes.com/games/daily-crossword/, just not in Across Lite format
