  1. Search within a saved (bookmarked) page

    I have a lot of saved pages but when I review them often I can't find any highlighted search term on the page. On some pages the original search term blue box is still there which saves a lot of time finding the part of the page I need. I find myself taking a lot of screen shots and filing elsewhere, which shouldn't be necessary.

  2. More Welsh papers post 1950

    South Wales Echo, Evening Post, Evening Argus, Western Mail or Wrexham Leader fit the bill for equality as Ireland seems to have precedence on here currently

  3. Add whole regions one by one

    Would take time but for example you could spend a month uploading London papers, or East Midlands, South Wales, Lancashire etc

  7. Thank you, BNA

    Have just been reading the suggestions for improvement and have added one of my own, but I would like also to say thank you for this amazing website and all the work that has made it possible. It is a godsend for researchers. I cannot understand why here in Canada we cannot provide the same resource to researchers. We have far fewer newspapers — and far less history! So thank you, Britain, for creating the BNA.

  8. Suggestion page

    The same newspaper appears under multiple titles. Check out the Stratford Express, produced in West Ham. It appears as The Stratford Express, Stratford Express, etc. Hope this does not affect vote counting because I really need that newspaper!

  13. Make payments clear. I paid the fee, having contacted you. Now it seems the money has mot been taken I thought I had sorted this out

    I thought I had paid but you have not taken the money even though I sorted it out with you. Try communicating - a good idea for a site that deals in communication

  14. Stoke sentinel

    Stoke Sentinel please update this far too much emphasis on appeasing Irish newspapers on this site, they only make up a small part of Britain

  16. lists of newspapers

    it would be great to be able to have a downloadable version of the list of newspapers available digitally at a particular point. That way, I can keep track of how comprehensive my search was at the time I conducted it - making it easier to report on the limitations of my search.
    I mean the list here - https://www.britishnewspaperarchive.co.uk/titles I've just spent some time taking screenshots of the full list! (around 40 separate screenshots!)

  18. Allow changing page in fullscreen

    Currently, when looking through an issue of a publication, it is a process (once the issue is found) of: click on page, click fullscreen, go back to standard screen; select another page, click fullscreen, go back to standard screen; and so on.
    This could be: click on first page, click fullscreen, click or scroll to next page.
