Improve date entry
Other newspaper archives have a better date entry system where you can type in the year and day and month default to 'Any Month' etc .
One feature that would need some programming work but would be very useful is if I enter the start date as 1850 then then the end date drop down list started at 1850. I might alternative be better if the drop down list worked opposite ways around i.e. start date at the earliest date available and end date started at the latest date available.
We will add this to the list of things to be looked at – a great suggestion which will save time for customers

Is it possible to search by date of publication, e.g., to see how a certain event was covered? I would have thought this was pretty basic but I can’t find how to do it.
