      Random gave me a pretty hard search this time, which I thoroughly enjoyed!

        If you refresh the page, your changes will reset 🙃

        But always good messing around with sites to learn new things.

        That has been a thing from the start. It is a non issue, you wont be able to cheese it by searching for edited words 😜

          You actually can cheese it. All you have to do is call a js function in the console after you make your edits, and it will regenerate the puzzle with the edited word list. I haven't tried multiple words in fields yet, that might break it. The only issue I had was it didn't cross off the changed word when I found it, but I figured that one out too. It just requires a bit more editing of the html.

          I don't know how much changing words will help you cheat, since you still need to find the words. Maybe if you made every word the same, but I expect that to break it. In my case I just replaced Kneecap with Patella.

          Edit: Multiple words with spaces in the fields equals solvable puzzle, but space squares render misaligned. Repeated words equals not solvable.

          Edit 2:

          Edit 3: And I've figured out how to adjust the grid size to make it even easier to find the one word. I promise not to actually cheat like this for future word searches. They aren't really that hard. Honestly, the effort required editing it like this probably isn't that much less than solving it legitimately.

            Yeah, not a big deal if people cheat. You can already do a few things to help find words and if you're really crafty, there's other stuff you can do too. 

            Its not even like we could even properly enforce it server-side. There's always a way around it and we're going to rely on user input somewhere. Inb4 server-side authoritative word searches so people just start bruteforcing them.

            I mean the point of these is to have fun, not to cheat it to get it done easy, but to each his own :) Thanks for pointing this out tho :)

          They've always been editable text fields? I thought he was messing around with the inspector.

        It's only client side on your copy of the page.

        It's up to you if you want to mess with your wordsearch page in your browser - I don't think Flux will care :)
