New URL for WSJ & Philadelphia
  • I found the problem with the Wall Street Journal and Philadelphia Inquirer puzzles. The URL has changed to include comcast rather than att. Just change that one part of the URL and the puzzles are available again.
  • Update: Black Ink 1.1.9 is now out, which automatically fixes the URLs in question:

    Check for updates from in the app, or download it directly from the site:

    Aha! Great discovery! Thank you, Vicky. I'll get an update out ASAP with the newer URLs.

    In the mean time, detailed instructions for anybody who is less familiar with the puzzle source configurations in Black Ink:

    1. Open Black Ink.
    2. Select "Black Ink -> Preferences" menu item from the top of the screen.
    3. Select a puzzle source, e.g. "Wall Street Journal" from the list.
    4. Click the Edit button.
    5. Change the Web Source URL so "att" becomes "comcast", so the whole URL for example in Wall Street Journal becomes:

    http://mazerlm.home.comcast.net/wsj%y%m%d.puz

    6. Click OK, and close the preferences window.

    At this point your puzzle source should now open with the latest releases.

    Thanks again Vicky! Great discovery, appreciate your sharing the news.
