Clue database
« on: January 30, 2020, 04:24:07 PM »
Does the answer database only include answers that have been published in the NYT and LA Times? I could have sworn that I could look up answers that have been in other puzzles also, but all I see in the drop-down on the "Answer Search" page is NYT and LAT.

Also, where is the link for the FAQ referred to on the "About this site" page? ... https://www.cruciverb.com/index.php?action=ezportal;sa=page;p=7

Hmm ... Now I see why I thought there were more puzzles in the answer database. When I do a search, it returns a variety of other puzzles in addition to the NYT and LAT. But I only see All, New York Times and LA Times as choices when I click the Publisher drop-down. I don't get it.

When you select NYT or LAT it only gives you the answers from those publications. When you select ALL, it gives you answers from ALL publications (that is, all that are in this database, which is far from all publications). For a more robust database, try crosswortracker.com or crosswordgiant.com
