  1. 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.

  2. 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"

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. Dorset Echo Digitalisation

    The Dorset Echo needs digitizing and there is some concern that if this is not completed soon then some history will be lost.

  12. Zooming feature

    I've just rejoined after a couple of years away... maybe it's because I am using Chrome now but when I zoom in to read a highlighted result, I cannot move the page around so the highlight if off the screen... I do not want to have to make a pdf of every result, however tangential to my research! Maybe there should be arrows/ + and - signs, for zooming/navigating a page that are not appearing on my screen? I am having a similar issue on ancestry so it maybe a browser issue

  13. Problematic search facility

    I'm struggling with your search facility. (8 and 9 July) I click to view an item returned by the search and it insists on taking me to the sign up for a subscription page! I joined you last week & paid for one month. Help!

    If the error continues please contact our support team." Why is that?

  20. "View" box does not display on small / mobile screens

    Millions - especially the young - are accessing sites like yours via smartphone. And your site is already ALMOST there - but not quite! Having found the articles I wanted, I was blocked at the very last stage - clicking on "view" - because the box mentioning credits was too large to fit on the screen of my phone, could not be modified, and made it impossible for me to click further (I am using Safari on an iPhone 6). So close! What about modifying that box so that it is smartphone-compatible? Thanks!
