Two questions:

1) I have checked the "automatically log in" box but I still have to manually log in each time I want to post a message. I saw where others were having this problem, but did not really see a definitive response. ???

2) When I am posting a new puzzle I have copied from Simple Sudoku, I do not get additional spacing within the rows that I observe in postings entered by others. Do I have to manually insert additional spaces or is there a "trick" to make this happen using the "Code" command?

Thanks ....

Ted

1) I can't figure out the log in thing. It's not consistent. Sometimes I'm logged in and when I click to reply I have to log in. For a few days I wasn't logged in when I arrived at the site, but checking that box you mentioned fixed that, at least for the time being.

2) Not sure I understand. Exactly how are you getting that puzzle onto a post?

1) I have had the login problem for a long time. First, I thought it was because I am an administrator. Then, I thought it was because I was using Firefox, not IE.

It is now particularly bad. If I am logged in to the discussion groups, and go to the home page (with the daily puzzle), I have to log in again when I return to the discussion.

2) I do not know. Code tags only apply a constant pitch font, and disable all other formatting. I do not know "Simple Sudoku", but you should look for some kind of "export" function. Sudoku Susser allows you to write a text file, which you can then copy & paste in the forums.

Best wishes,

Keith

Ted,

In SS: Edit > Copy

In your message: Click "Code", paste Ctrl+V, "Code" again.

You will get:
Code:

 |...|.97|...|

 |2..|...|1.5|
 |---+---+---|
 |...|14.|...|
 |.19|7..|3..|
 |...|..6|.2.|
 *-----------*

 
 *-----------------------------------------------------------------------------*

Problem solved?

If you want additional spaces, you have to manually edit the above.

That's been consistent with me. I'd just go to the home page via a new tab and get back to the forum by switching back to the original tab. Or if on the home page and I want to go to the forum I just use my forum bookmark; that's a little easier than logging in.

Thanks everyone for the timely responses.
1. Logging In is not a big deal ......

2. I have been pasting the code in from Simple Sudoku ( and will try Susser), but it is more compacted in the row than the code provided by others. As suggested, I will manually enter spaces in the future.

Ted,

Alternatively, you could type the clues into Draw/Play and easily get a nicely aligned grid that way. I don't know how much effort that might be compared to manually entering spaces. That also has advantages to the reader who can print the puzzle or play it online.

Why is it that the most obvious answer is always the last one or the one that I should have already known?

I thank you again ......
