  2. Fix The Siging Up Page

    It has proved impossible this week to sign up to a month's subscription. Having filled in credit card details I am returned to the sign up page. Despite sending an email at the beginning of the week no one has bother to reply. Disappointing

  3. User experience on Apple iPad with Safari browser is poor

    Browsing the site on an Apple iPad is a terrible user experience. Many problems exist. E.g. Typing this feedback is in a minature box I can hardly see. Scrolling of newspapers is almost impossible. Pinch zoom does not work. Accessing the minute navigation control is almost impossible with my finger touching the wrong control than i intended. Very frustrating!

  4. More newspapers covering South Wales

    There are too few newspapers covering South Wales, including Newport and the old county of Monmouthshire. The South Wales Argus would be a great addition to the BNA online.

  5. Add a FAQ that covers the actual mechanics of the website

    As I am finding this website impossible to use with an ipad, I would appreciate some indication as to wether it is not ipad friendly, or if the site being not fit for purpose is just my problem.

  7. Better editting facilities required

    I use a Windows 10 desktop and have two screens attached. How can I split the original image of the newspaper onto one screen, and leave the OCR text box to fill up the second screen? The small postage stamp sized OCR box currently provided makes editing text very difficult, with continual scrolling required.

  8. No suggestion at all. Just please give me a simple way in which to express my now frustration in trying to send you a message to say that

    Just get back to me - I've written a message, and keep receiving these silly empy message boxes instead of moving on

    can you list newly uploaded titles by when they were uploaded rather than alphabetically?

  10. Nottingham - 1950s

    You already cover a couple of Nottingham papers up to 1950, but I'm especially interested in the period 1950-1960. They were times of massive redevelopment, the local race riots, and my own childhood.

  11. Bug: not logged in and "anonymous" on the Help and Advice pages?

    Even though I am logged in under my BNA account on the website, and my name shows at the top of the screen, as soon as I click "Help & Advice" this disappears and I only see "Sign-in". Attempting to post a comment asks me to sign in, but using my email address just shows me as "anonymous". Returning to the BNA home or search screens shows that I am still signed in under my correct BNA account. Why don't I remain signed in and automatically post comments under my BNA account name in the help and feedback sections?

  12. Bug: Entire article screen faded and inactive on returning from full-screen view

    If, after using the Edit text window in and artcile, you click the full-screen button in the article view, then click again to return to normal view, if you then click "Show article text", the text box appears correctly but the entire screen is greyed out and ALL buttons and links are inaccessible. The only way out is to use the browser Back button or press escape.

  13. Add a service status so we know when you database has access issues

    Just add a link to show current service levels rather than those annoying and non-information messages that say "unexpected error"

  15. Don't take payments without explicit consent

    Don't automatically sign customers up to monthly subscriptions and have them end this with a fairly well-hidden tick box. It's disingenuous. Be more honest about the payment system.

  16. Bookmarks

    Your bookmarks tab now comes up with the list in blue and is difficult to read. The print is small which makes it worse. I have a lot of bookmark folders and find it also difficult to scroll down beyond a certain point.

  17. Previous/next result

    Add ‘Previous result’ and ‘Next result’ links to each page shown from a list of search results, so that it is not necessary to return to the results list before viewing the next result. The Times Digital Archive already has this facility.

  20. Bookmark feature is unusable on mobile device

    Hi. Really enjoying the site. But when I try to bookmark a search result on my mobile device, the box displays partly off the screen. This means I can't click to save the bookmark. See attachment.
