    Thank you so much for the great Joomla puzzles! We have a birthday bash every year for a forum I help moderate. During the bash, we have different contests and this year, I am running a puzzle contest. I am using your jigsaw, word search, and sliding picture puzzle and everyone is liking them a lot!

    I installed your Find the Pair puzzle today but am having problems getting it to work. I get it to load but the pictures don’t show up. In the initial load where it normally gives a quick preview of the pictures, all I see are ?. Then, when I click on a tile, it is blank. This is using your stock photos that are installed with the module. Any suggestions on how to get it to work? It would be a fun one to add.

    Here is how I am using your puzzles…For the jigsaw, I just a photo that has been posted on our forum. When the person completes the puzzle, they have to go to the forum and find the picture and then come back to the page where there is a form. On it, they have to enter the username of the person who took the picture as proof of completion. The same thing applies with sliding picture puzzle. It would be nice to have an option to not have the gallery button so that folks can not cheat!

    For the word search puzzle, I have edited your javascript code a little to put in my own custom message when the congratulations message pops up. In this box, I give a completion code that they then have to enter into the form to prove they completed the puzzle! You might consider adding a box on the back-end for folks to put in their own custom message then your puzzles could be used more easily in contests for the folks who don’t know how to edit the code.

    Anyway, thanks for some great modules! If you ever consider adding some of these features and want to charge a fee for a “Pro” version, I would be all in!

    Also, if you can give some guidance on the find the pair puzzle, that would be a great addition to our contest!

      Hi Curtis,

      thank you for your feedback and nice words. Very creative how you use the puzzles on your site.
      To your questions/suggestions:

      1. Find The Pair puzzle: cant find an error after a fresh reinstall. Do you have a test-page I could look onto to find out what the reason might be?!
      I really need some help here.

      2. Regarding the onSuccess Message. It’s possible for the html/js based puzzles like sudoku, findthepair and wordsearch. Its harder with the flash based. I’ll have a look on the whole idea for all of them.

      3. Hiding the gallery/restart button’s. That is something I implementented for the wordpress and typo3 version of jigsaw and will definitively do that for the joomla versions too. Soon.

      So thanks again for your feedback and help.

      Tom

    On my website I already use “find the pair” puzzles but they are not working ok. Maybe I want to use your puzzles because they are looking very nice and I can insert my pictures and I can increase the tiles. There is only one problem. I have a Joomla! 3.0 website and this extension is 2.5. Du you have plans to make this extension for Joomla 3.0

    Thomas Good day! I installed “MyPuzzle Find the Pair” local. The installation works very well, the module settings are very ├╝bersichttlich. Unfortunately, when you enter the puzzle, the images are not displayed! Neither the default path for the Gallery, even in my own path. What could be wrong? There the images are not eingelesen.Ich using Joomla 2.5.9. Maybe you can help me. Incidentally, MyPuzzle Jigsaw and Sliding MyPuzzle I have also tried local – that works!

      Hi Kurt,

      sounds not good! Can you please help me to figure out what the problem is on your site?
      Would be nice to have access to your test-page and check what the component is doing in the background.
      So please send me the link to the page causing the plugin not to work.

      Thanks, Tom

          Hi Kurt,

          found the mistake (hopefully). Your site is running as an subdirectory and I handled the image source-path not accordingly.
          Could you please download the plugin from this site again (version 1.1.0) and reinstall?!
          Let me know whether the new version fixes your problem and I will upload the new version to the extention directory.

          Many thanks,
          Tom

    Hi

    I have installed the module but it will not show the images. I have tried with images in other folders than default but nothing helps.
    Any ideas?

      Hi Tom,
      just uploaded a new version 1.1.0 that fixed an image-path problem. Maybe that helps your too!?
      You can download it on this page further up or on the joomla extensions site.
      Let me know, whether that works.

        Hi Tom! I’ll call again! It all works now, but a suggestion to you, I still want to do. In the demo, the user can select the number of couples. That would be great in Joomla! Up or down in the middle of a selection dropdown box would be perfect! Tom, as I said just a suggestion. I’m not a programmer, I can not implement it. Maybe you can install the.

          Hi Kurt,

          I guess you mean a functionality like we do have on our website!? http://mypuzzle.org/find-the-pair
          Can imagine to add that in the future. Right now I’m a little short on time…sorry. But anyway a good point and I will add that to my to-do-list.

    Very nice job. Puzzle find the pair works perfectly. Nice that you can use your own picture. Is it also possible to turn off the preview ?

      to switch off the preview is not possible right now.
      Would be an additional option in the future.

    Hallo Tom,
    I like the demo of your program Find The Pair. About this program I have a question.
    On our website (Non Joomla) with traffic-signs we had earlier a game like Find The Pair, but the kids had to combine the sign with the meaning of that sign. We realized this by giving a suffix to the name of the image like image111a.jpg and image111b.jpg. Is this possible with your programma, in the way you name the images like animals-cat.jpg and animals-cat-2.jpg ?
    Kind regards,
    Gert

      Hi Gert,
      thank you for your message. The fixed couple idea has been brought to me before and I like it.
      I will check how much effort that would be. Probably the easiest would be to do such a filename-matching.
      Maybe with the last character or a suffix. When looking at your example image…To have the images side by side is not a requirement right?
      Thanks, Tom

    Thanks for your work on these puzzles…my kids are enjoying them.

    However, I can’t seem to get the pictures to show up. I am using a sub-directory where Joomla 3.x is installed – how should the path to the images be formed?

    Thanks in advance for your help.
    :)

    1. admin Post author

      Hi, go to your media manager. that is refering to the path “images”. So if you put the picture directly here. “images” should be the path for the module configuration.
      If you add another subdir like “holiday” and put your images there…then “images/holiday” should work as “Image gallery Path” in the module options.
      Hope that helps

    Hi Tom! I was happy when I found your extentions. They would fit my site perfectly. I downloaded and installed both Find the Pair and Sliding, but I can’t get any of them to work. They install fine, but when I try to load them in a post, they don’t show up. Am I missing something? I installed the files from the Joomla extension page, but I tried with the one from this page as well and it doesn’t change. Neither the default folder or my own image folder work. I do have my web page in a subfolder (sub sub folder actually), if that’s the problem. What can I do to make it appear?
    Thanks a lot,

    Hi Tom,
    On the date 22 apr 2013 I asked you for more possibilities to pair different pictures (traffic sign and the meaning )
    Now I have installed your progam , but the images are missing.
    The gallery image path is:
    images/pictures

    The link to the test page is:
    Leerling –> Kijk hier –> puzzelen

    Hi again Tom,

    It appears my last comment is still awaiting moderation even though you have replied to other comments after that, so I just thought I’d check in with you again. I’d really like to get this sorted out so that I could use your apps!

    I actually got Sliding Puzzles working. It works great! But for Find the Pair, I can’t get it to show any pictures. I have tried to uninstall and reinstall without success. My web site is 2.5.blissymbolics.org/open if you want to take a look – click on the links under “Fun Stuff” at the right side.

    Thanks!

    Hi Tom,

    I have installed two puzzles “Find The Pair” and “Jigsaw” but only the installation of Jigsaw was successfull.
    Find The Pair will not show the images . I have tried with images in other folders than default but nothing helps. What can I do to see the pictures?
    Please have a look on my testpage.

      Hi Gert,

      somehow you managed to get your site-path obstructed with that index.php in it.
      You need to enable URL rewriting. A related post would be here.
      Then the plugin should work too. Let me know whether you got that to work properly.

      Hi Razlie,
      looks like the plugin is expecting your images to be in the path:
      “http://dev.5r.com.my/kelabnuri_new/hubungi-nuri/images/mixnmatch/xyz.jpg”
      Maybe the give path is not correct?

    I have downloaded pkg_mp_ftpair.zip. When I installed the package the message was “package installed sucessfully”, but when i try to go to components-com-mp-ftpair, I get error “component not found”. I have uninstall and then I have installed again, but the error always is the same. My site is joomla 3.0.

    Thank you for your help.

      Hi,

      the component is only a background component to read and resize the images. You dont care about it.
      Just configure to module and use it with loadposition.
