  2. clear option to upgrade when renewing sub

    allow for renewal upgrade through your account to ensure archive is not lost. At present only option is auto renew, but I don’t feel secure that that click leads to option of upgrade? It’s not clear as presented.

  3. Stop the Stupid Drop Down Panels

    I am paying to do research at the British Newspaper Archive. It's not a video game nor an entertainment for me.

    I do not need to have a drop down panel repeatedly appearing, (especially over the menu bar), and suggesting that I "Search the archive"!

    It's a nuisance! Or, do the people at the British Newspaper Archive not have the intelligence to realize it? It is not much better than to have some library worker interrupt people who are reading a book, "Would you like a book to read?" That idiot would be tossed out of a job, very soon;…

  9. defalut search to a region

  10. Show how many matches from a search

    When you do a search, you get ten results on the page and at the bottom links to four pages. But you have no idea if there is one more page or a hundred more pages.

    It would be good to have an idea how many matches there are.

    Also to be able to navigate direct to one of those pages especially when leaving a search overnight.

  16. Easier use of BNA for academic referencing

    WHen you bookmark something into a folder, in its description include its full details for referencing, as as to make the BNA easier and more attractive for academic use.

    i.e.
    at the minute there is article name, then 'My notes', then published, then newspaper

    also have...

    Author, ‘Article title’, Newspaper/Magazine Title, Date, Section (if relevant), p. /pp. page/pages of article.

    Author and article title not overly important.

    Even aside from the above, when you bookmark an article the page number the saved article is on would be useful

  19. Viewer bug with touch screen and Chrome browser

    There is a fault with the BNA page viewer when running in Chrome (60.0.3112.101 64-bit ) in Windows 10 (1703 Creators Update) on a machine with a touch screen (Dell XPS 15-9560). Instead of the initial "Desktop view" with floating cross-bar navigator, the view immediately switches into the full-screen view, but with the "Back" "Desktop View" "Full page view" "Zoom in" and "Zoom out" buttons instead of the full floating crossbar navigator. It is possible to zoom in with the zoom button, or by double-tapping on the touch screen, but the image cannot be panned using the mouse, only the…

  20. Paper, Browsing and Correction


    1. Oldham Newspapers.

    2. Make it easier to browse a paper. I want to be able to flick through the pages or issues.

    3. Make it easier to correct text. This will then help everyone find what they are looking for. At the moment there is a huge amount of information that can't be found because the text is messed up.
