  3. Missing search items

    Why is it that sometimes when I do a search I can't find the item in the results?

    For instance I searched for the the phrase "Nantwich Union" in 1825 and got this result:
    https://www.britishnewspaperarchive.co.uk/search/results/1820-01-01/1829-12-31?basicsearch=%22nantwich%20union%22%20&phrasesearch=nantwich%20union&exactsearch=false&retrievecountrycounts=false&sortorder=score

    but the term Nantwich Union doesn't appear in the result:

  5. OCCASIONAL POOR QUALITY OF DIGITALLY SCANNED IMAGES

    Whoever checks the quality of the final scanned image prior to release needs to pay more attention to the detail because, in numerous instances, the reproduction quality is so feint that it is impossible for it to be read either in the digital interpretation or by the human eye.
    Because of this, I have missed the opportunity to read several articles of interest and, to the best of my knowledge after searching the HELP categories, there is no facility for the user to report these page issues.

  10. Pin newspapers to specific people

    I had an idea, what if you could pin pages to people, like say you want to filter articles about a less known specific person, not on the level of like presidents, but say criminals or war heroes, etc. if you could tag that person and the system would give them a unique indexing number and profile that users could link pages to, add descriptions to, etc. kind of like how Ancestry links documents to profiles of specific people.

  11. Ability to sort bookmarked articles

    It would improve this site immeasurably if it were possible to sort bookmarked articles by date of publication (or source) once they have been saved into a folder.

    At present there is no way of organising articles once they have been bookmarked, except by moving them between folders. This makes any sort of chronological research incredibly difficult. It would not be difficult to introduce a 'sort by' field in the bookmarks page, given that the date metadata already exists.

  14. Old English grammatical question

    Not an idea, really. If a person edits a column from the 18th century and is confronted with f instead of s, should we use f, or the up to date s.
    e.g. Douglafs. I would like to confidently change the f' because it would accidently reduce the search field left in it's old English type, what do you think?

  15. The search returns

    Why do most of the searches just come back as a lot of gobbledegook? I want to subscribe but am not sure after seeing this!
