  2. 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:

  3. Please add the papers with the most votes ?

    These are enough votes to warrant you adding the Wolverhampton Express and Star yet it continues to be looked over in favour of yet more Scottish or London based papers highly repetitive and needs looking at

  5. Allow searches to be specified using "regular expressions"

    Please allow searches to be specified using "regular expressions".
    This is where the user specifies a pattern to look for rather than a fixed strings. This means that the user doesn't have to keep submitting searches for the same thing.
    For example.
    I'm looking for Henry Boot.
    The problem is that "o" can look like o,a,s,0,c. "y" can look like y and v. etc (I'll keep it simple..)
    Searching for him could result is searches for:
    Henry Boot
    Henry Boat
    Henry Bost
    Henry Boct
    Henry Baat
    Henry Baat
    etc etc. Lots of separate searches.

    However, a rexex search to achieve…

  6. 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.

  8. Too many Scottish titles and little else presently

    I’m all for covering every region but not at the expense of ignoring whole regions is it not possible to add titles from Yorkshire, Wales, East Anglia, Manchester, Midlands as well as your Scottish ones it’s very frustrating playing the waiting game

  9. Allow users to edit which paragraphs are included in a story

    The OCR seems to select at random which blocks of text are to be included in a given story. Many times it would be useful to connect multiple paragraphs that your website treats as separate stories, but which actually should be only one.

  10. Supposed to be a British archive

    Sick to death of obscure old Scottish items, should be renamed the Scottish newspaper archive.I don't think they pay any attention to the forum site, very disappointing and not worth a subscription.

  15. Add a button 'Report image problem'

    It appears only the first column has been scanned on https://www.britishnewspaperarchive.co.uk/viewer/bl/0002677/17980801/003/0002 - but how can I report it (and all the other problems I come across).

  17. I was automatically re-subscribed to this Archive, though I didn't ask for it. Please get rid of the auto-renewal function

    Get rid of the auto-renewal subscription feature. I've already paid a lot more than I signed up for.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.
