Added Don't Connect Four.
For the past few days, I've been trying to get a "Tic Tac Toe Tactics" game to work, (mostly because the name amused me!) but with only a 3x3 grid it seemed rather unfruitful and somewhat repetitive.
Instead, I bulked it up to a 6x6 grid, with a "Don't Connect Four" rule.
It seems to work ok, but I'm not sure how solvable the puzzles are. Be sure to let me know if you have too much of a hard time with them.

Yet another fix for Crossed. I'm really not sure why it occasionally outputs completely blank puzzles.
All very odd.
I think it's a memory/variable issue, as it seems to be happening most often when the puzzle takes too long to generate, and curiously empties itself as it does so!
Anyway, I've rewritten chunks of it, yet again, in the hopes that it'll finally fix the issue, but ... yet again, it's reset the "Yesterday's Solution" content, so apologies for that.

The triangles weren't too hard to get up and running yesterday, so I also took time to make a completely random letter grid.
The letter grid doesn't really have any specific solution due to it being entirely random, but you're supposed to play it like you would a game of Boggle.. Trying to find words with letters that join up.

Added Critically Triangular.
Aaah, the joys of trigonometry!
Also added Word Snake, which doesn't currently have any solutions, because I'm not sure how I could do that!
It's an open-ended game, and should at least prove somewhat challenging.
In addition, I've also rejigged the puzzle selection menu to make it a little bit neater, sectioning off the games into their various categories, and I've also shuffled the How To instructions to be in the same order.

If you've tried clicking the "Words, Maths, Logic" links on the Foldapuz site, you'll probably have noticed that the templates aren't 100% just of that type.
This is simply because I haven't yet coded enough puzzles for each category.

Use your knowledge of Trigonometry to find the values of all the sides and angles of the critical triangle.

I added a simple new game to Foldapuz, last night, but .. Would you believe it.. It didn't show up on today's default layout.
D'oh!

Complete the grid using the letters provided, so that each row and column contains a valid three letter word.

Added Word Grid.
It's not the best word selection, but at least it works.
I did try making it only use "The most common 3 letter words", but it tended to get stuck whilst trying to generate the puzzles due to there not being nearly enough "common" words in the list.
I might rejig this game at a later point.

Spent an insane amount of time reformatting the URL so that I can add the new Words/Maths/Logic shortcut URLs into the mix.
Seems to function well enough, and should allow people to quickly pick their favourite types of puzzles from the site.
Additionally added a very brief set of instructions for the games in the "How To" page. Hopefully that's enough instructions to get the player going.
As always, let me know if it isn't!

The site has been moved to a new server, and I've rewritten a bit of the cache code, so it all works a little bit faster.
Added Logic Battleships, which Dabz suggested, right at the very start of this project.
Sorry it took so long!

A quick tweak to the Word Ladder generation. It was getting rather silly, and replacing letters with letters it'd previously used, leading to very repetitive ladders.

After realising how bloomin' simple yesterday's version of Solve A,B,C was, I spent an hour or so trying to find the most convoluted of puzzles.
I think the maths should be fairly complex, now, but am more convinced than ever, that figuring out the solution isn't as mathematically simple as it should be.
Added Move One Digit, which needed a brief explanation.
Currently considering adding a similarly short description to each of the panels.

Further tweaking to the Find a Way maze generator. Things are hopefully a little more varied, now, and I've also upgraded the solution display.
Added Solve A, B, C. (Thanks to Liam Kelk for suggesting it.)
I'm not 100% convinced that it's do-able, and will have to sit and try to solve a few of the puzzles over the next day or two..
Quite honestly, my maths brain has melted from all the coding, tonight!!

A minor update to the way Word Ladder is generated, which has sped the whole thing up by a remarkable amount.
What took about 3 or 4 seconds, yesterday, now only takes around 0.2 seconds.
Optimisation is the key!
Technically, instead of checking each and every word in the list, I first ensured the wordlist was properly alphabetised..

Rewrote a significant portion of Sudoku thanks to feedback from @JulieMontoya20. The puzzles are a lot easier, now, but should at least be doable!
Added Word Ladder.
It's a little bit slow. Hopefully I can find a way to speed that up.
Note : Due to the way I've rewritten the Random Words code, (so the Word Ladder worked!) Yesterday's Solutions will not work properly for today or tomorrow.

Fill in the grid such that no row or column contain duplicates of the numbers 1 through 9.
In addition, each of the nine bordered 3x3 miniature grids should also contain the numbers 1 through 9.

Finally happy with the Find a Way maze generation. The mazes aren't the "best" mazes in the world, but are at least now a bit better than a straight vertical line!
Added Sudoku.
Since Sudoku is fairly complex to generate, rather than being wholly generated by the script, I've opted to pre-generate 2000 number grid layouts, which then get numbers plucked from them to give a final puzzle.

Added a "Yesterday's Solutions" option to the bottom of the site. Click to switch between viewing today's puzzles or yesterday's solutions.
The solutions "should" be functioning properly, but may occasionally glitch if I tweak too much of the underlying ProcGen code for the puzzles.
Updated Number Target to remove instances where it would do "n x 1", which resulted in uninteresting maths!
Updated Crossed to remove some of the 8-letter word's letters.
Added Find a Way...

Finally got v1 of the main website up and running.
Simple drop down menu items and a puzzle page.
Nothing too fancy, just enough that you can select from the growing collection of puzzles.
