With just a little bit of code you can embed a crossword puzzle, and all of the other puzzle types, within your own website with ease!
At Puzzel.org I want to ensure that the online sharing of crossword puzzles is as easy as possible. I have therefore made a special, clean version of the crossword puzzles which can be embedded nicely!
Why embed a crossword puzzle?
- It's fun and awesome! :)
- Directly available to the visitors of your website
- More engagement from your visitors
- In combination with some of your own styling/logo, the embedded crossword puzzle will be an integral part of your website.
How does the embedding work?
All of the features and styling are being loaded from the Puzzel.org servers. Therefore you don't need to implement any fancy code, except the embed-code of your own crossword puzzle. This works in the same way as embedding a YouTube-video. The example code looks as follows:
Embedded puzzles are also available via Wordpress by installing the new Puzzel.org Wordpress plugin! A new experiment that is interesting to try out! :) - Discover the new Wordpress Plugin
Are you using the Canvas LMS as a teacher? - Discover the LTI Canvas LMS integration for crossword puzzles
Embedded puzzles are premium
Embedding puzzles is a premium feature, which means it is available to you as a teacher for 30 dollars per year, or as a non-teacher for 10 dollars per month. You can read more about the pricing here.
To make sure that the puzzle is in its optimal form, you can also adjust the width/height of the iframe in the code above. This also impacts if a scrollbar is shown or not.
A different way to customize the puzzle is to make use of the brand new custom styling feature. This allows you to create a personalized puzzle which fits your website perfectly. Read more about customized crossword puzzles.
