I did a major rewrite of the layout code, today, and it broke EVERYTHING!!! All "Yesterday's Solutions" are no longer valid for today, and all puzzles have been re-generated.
The reason is so that the layouts can be expanded to MANY more puzzle types.
Previously the Layout format was 8-characters, meaning you have up to 62 different puzzle types (A-Z, a-z, 0-9)
Although I'm not 100% sure I'll ever reach that limit, I figured it was probably a good idea to bump that number a li...

Fill the grid with the letters from the chosen word, ensuring each row, column and bordered cluster contains all five letters from the word.

Added Wordoku, which makes use of a pre-generated list of layouts. (From a self coded generator, created using BlitzMax)
2048 layouts are in the file, and on top of that you've got a random selection and then a random selection of missing tiles, so I think (!?) it should be plenty random for days/weeks/months to come.
But I'm also starting to get a little worried about whether the random number generator is doing a good enough job.
I might have to peek into that, to be sure, but it...

Added Alternating Maze.
Make a path from the marked Start and End points, where each step is on an alternate coloured tile.
A nice and simple game that makes secondary use out of the normal Find A Path code, but tweaks it just enough to be different, and quite a bit harder, too.

Late last night I decided to add a bog-standard Chess puzzle to Foldapuz.

Place the remaining queens onto the board, so that they don't end up in the same row, column, or diagonal as any of the other pieces.

Added Eight Queens to the mix.
It's an age old puzzle that's existed in newspapers for as long as I can remember, and was alarmingly simple to add into the mix.
I'd like to do another Chess based puzzle, but it's proving a teensy bit more complex to generate, and I honestly don't think it's all that difficult to solve once it has done!
A puzzle for another day.
The Chess Pieces are drawn using the font "Chess Alpha", which I found on this page.

Fill the grid with X's and O's without connecting a line of four.
Each row and column should have 3 of each symbol.

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.

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!

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.
