I want to create a geocache puzzle based on sudoku. I have copied and pasted all the text into the long description window successfully. When I try to copy and paste in the actual Sudoku grid in this window it does not work.I created this grid in word and saved as a word document. Can anybody please give me help with this.

Make the Sudoku grid an image, problem solved.

Also, you can create tables as HTML in the listing, that way you also have a grid.

An image is the easiest, most reliable approach. Getting a table to look right might be challenging, given the filtering that the site does on the HTML entered by cache owners.

It's also easier to print an image. I'll have to print the entire page if it's done in HTML.

 

And don't worry about the image quality: just recently I saw a sudoku puzzle published where the guy solved this problem by just drawing the puzzle out freehand on a sheet of paper ripped from a notebook and then took a picture of it. Worked fine.

On my cache series that uses a Sudoku (http://coord.info/GC53M8H), I put a jpg image in the cache description page and also provided a link to a full-page PDF for those who wanted to print a full page Sudoku grid ahead of time.

Thanks Guys. However still having a problem. I have created a JPEG file for the puzzle, but it wont let me copy it into the Long Description Window. I have tried different ways of copying and pasting but it doesn't work. I notice that if I right click on the window the "Paste" instruction is greyed out. Do I need special privileges to copy pictures? Any suggestions are welcome.

RUN AROUND.

You have to have the photo posted on the Internet somewhere first. On your cache page, use 'upload images'. That adds it to your cache page. Right click on the mage to get the url of the photo. Insert that on your page using the format:

<img border="0" src="http://img.Groundspeak.com/cache/ xxxxx .jpg">

xxxx being the url without spaces. Actually, everything from src=" to "> is the url.
