  2. Birmingham Weekly Post

    Would it be possible to include Birmingham Weekly Post on the BNA website?
    My great-great grandmother wrote stories that were published in this paper!

  4. 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

  7. 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…

  8. 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.

  9. Serious bugs in Chrome browser

    There are some serious issues with the site in the Chrome browser. Viewed with Firefox, I don't have problems. But in Chrome, there are several huge issues. For example in the full-page view I can zoom in and out but I cannot pan around; click and drag with mouse doesn't work (although strangely dragging on a touch screen does). An even bigger issue in Chrome is when a window (such as the bookmark-this-item window) or dialogue box opens on top of the newspaper viewing pane in Desktop View, I cannot interact with the box/window using a mouse and I am…

  10. Show total items in each bookmark folder

    In the window for saving a bookmark, the drop-down menu showing the folders that I have created helpfully includes in brackets the number of items in that folder. However, when we go to our saved bookmarks section, the list of folders down the left-hand side does not have this feature. It would be handy to show the number of items in each folder in brackets here too.

  11. Ability to sort saved bookmark folders

    The feature allowing search results to be sorted by publication date instead of 'relevance' is very useful. It would also be extremely useful if there was the same option to sort our saved/bookmarked items into publication date order. At present it seems they are sorted by the time the user saved them, which is usually fairly arbitrary. Other sorting orders (like by publication title) might also be helpful.

  12. Articles are repeating themselves.

    I'm finding that I'll read an article, go back to my search, go to the next search page, and that same article will be on that search results page as well. For example, stories from 30 July 1894 are repeating in the same search session before moving onto 31 July 1894. The first screenshot is of the story on page 3 of my search results, the second screenshot image is of the same story on page 5.

  13. STOP chasing subscriptions

    Having paid for one month UNLIMITED access, I've had nothing but hassles. When I wish to open and view a page to READ the text, your systems reverts to a page giving me subscription options! What is the point of having accessed the site by logging in if your syetem takes me for another sucker and fails to let me actually use the time I have paid for?
    So SICK this am that I'm turning to read hard copy of the London Illustrated News of 1843. You owe me compensation and must get real with simplified access and searching

  17. Scanning errors

    There does not seem to be any mechanism for reporting scanning errors, particularly where the scan has picked up lines from across several columns at once.
