Putting your crossword puzzle on Facebook

Unfortunately, at this time we don't have a super-easy way to get your puzzles onto Facebook, but it's definitely something that we'd like to offer someday.  In the meantime, you have a few options.

Putting the puzzle on your own website

If you have your own website where you can upload web pages, the easiest thing to do is to create a web page for your puzzle in EclipseCrossword, and then you can upload that page directly to your site.  You can choose an interactive puzzle or a printable puzzle.

Sharing the puzzle as a printable document

If you don't have your own website, your best option is probably to make your puzzle into a printable document.  Then you can post that file online for others to download and print on their own.  Here's what you can do:

  1. Save your puzzle as a Word document.  (Click the link for step-by-step instructions.)
  2. Go to OneDrive, a free file sharing and storage service from Microsoft.  (You can of course use any other file sharing service you like.)
  3. Sign in, using the same account information you use to sign into, Hotmail, Windows, Xbox, Skype, Office, or other Microsoft services.
  4. Click Upload, and then upload the Word document that you created in step 1.
  5. Right-click on the document that you uploaded, and click Share.
  6. Click Get a link on the left and choose the View only option.  Then click Create link.
  7. Now, you can either copy the link and paste it into a message on Facebook (or anywhere else), or you can directly share it to Facebook using the buttons provided.  Anyone with that link can view, download, and print your puzzle.

(Please note that online services can change frequently, and these instructions may have fallen out-of-date.  Let us know if something doesn't work anymore!)
