    Installed the Jigsaw plug in, it works great. So added the Find a Pair plug in to the same page. As soon as I went into the set up for Find A Pair and changed settings there, then saved, all the Jigsaw settings went back to their default out of the box settings. Can you not have two different types of games on the same page? Was going to add the slider as well, but if changing the settings on that one will undo the settings of the others, that’s not going to work. Help? Thank you!

      Hi, thanks for that. Was definitevly a defect and I fixed it. Please update to the new version 1.1.0 and let me know whether it works now.
      Should be no conflict with the sliding plugin!? Can you please check that again after the update of the Find the pair!? Thanks!

    Is there a non-flash version of your plugins available? if not is this something you will integrate in the future?

    Thank you!

      right now only the plugins “Wordsearch”, “Find The Pair” and “Sudoku” are non-flash html-based (maybe not mobile optimized thou).
      “Jigsaw” and “Sliding” are only flash-based available right now.
      We definitely consider building html based versions in the future. However I cant tell when and how big the demand for this actually is.
      Thanks for your feedback.

    A non-flash version of those games (and any others you make) would be very much appreciated… I use dialup at the moment so I understand how annoying flash games are when you have low bandwidth… and I figure it If I can’t use it then it’s not good enough for my visitors (I am going to use flash games for now because that’s all that’s available, but PLEASE!)

      absolutely agree. A non flash version would be nice. Even for mobile devices.
      For sliding I could imagine that quite soon based on html5.
      Jigsaw is more complicated and will definitely take some time.

    I have the plugin up and working just great on my site, but when I use my iPhone, the images do not show. I also have the word search and sudoku, both work fine on my iPhone. Do I have to do something to make it work on mobile devices?

    1. admin Post author

      Hi, jigsaw and sliding puzzle are adobe flash based right now. Therefore they are unfortunately not supporting mobile devices.
      We might have mobile versions in the future.

    I love this plugin! I am having one weird thing happen, though. There is no background color by default, but when I specify *any* color in the shortcode, it comes up bright blue! Am I doing something wrong? (WordPress 3.5.1)

    Hi Tom!

    Just as the last comment, I also have the problem of the blue background, no matter whether I change it in the plugins css, or in plugins->editor. It stays blue – and that does not match with my site (in WP 3.5.1).

    Anyway thnx for the great job you did on this plugin!
    But since my public (kids) watches my site on pads & pods, they cannot enjoy the puzzles. That really is so sad. I DO hope, with the others before me, that a HTML5 version or alike soon will come.

    Best wishes, Magda – from Amsterdam

      Hi Magda,
      at least with the color I can probably help you. There is obviously a bug when using the shortcode parameters with an #.
      So if you use something like “[jigsaw-mp bgcolor='#D2A7D4']” please change it to “[jigsaw-mp bgcolor='D2A7D4']” without the “#”.
      Right now its adding one # per default without checking the string really. So you do have ## in the code which wont work.
      Hope that helps for now. The mobile version…yes, not so easy.

    Can you actually explain how to install this? You refer to options and settings. There is none of that with this.

    1. admin Post author

      when you go to your wordpress admin side e.g. “http://yoursite.com/wp-admin” then you have a menu entry “settings” and below that there should be a configuration page for the plugin.
      Hope that helps.

      I have done a version that lets you choose where to redirect to when finished.
      Try to find and update that sometime.
