Update 16th April
All that this test seems to have proved is that the second option works for fewer people than the first one. I have a third option but it needs some work before trying it out. In the meantime i have disabled the second option as it was causing problems with the spoiler I was using for the FAQ.
I have been aware for several weeks that the spoiler facilty used to hide the answers is not working for everyone. I have tracked down a different system, but it requires that the code be manually inserted before and after every word that is to be hidden, which means that it is not viable as it stands. If it works then I will try to merge the best features of each, but that is new territory for me and might take some time. Before embarking on this project it seems sensible to see if it is going to work for everyone.
Below you will see two identical hints, the first uses the existing system and the second the new system. Please let me know in a comment which ones work for you. While I need feedback from a number of people, I am particularly interested in hearing from those for whom the existing system is not working.
1. Journalists plot to divide mates, potentially (10)
SUBEDITORS: The kind of plot found in a garden or allotment inside (to divide) some potential mates or love interests
Option 2 has been removed
I have removed the crossword grid as it looked like it was interfering with the test.
