Thread: Trove, please fix this error.

    Trove, please fix this error.

    This issue of The Daily Telegraph has the pages jumbled, i.e. in incorrect order.
    http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-page18374863
    e.g.http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article153762553 (p. 7 placed as p.11).

    If it could be fixed, that would be great.
    Thank you.


    As an aside, would it be possible to add to the Trove Newspapers' "wish list" a "Report" button (or similar) to be added to each page? (e.g. beside the "Cite" and "Buy" buttons).
    This would enable quick reporting of such errors.
    Using the Trove "Contact Us" link means you have to fill in a short questionnaire of details, just to report an error (which isn't worth it).
    The lack of an easy option to report mistakes means that many people won't bother, because it's too much of a nuisance (I must plead guilty on that score, for a number of instances).

    These two pages of The National Advocate have been placed with the issue of Wed. 30 June 1915 (http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-page17045863), but they are actually from the issue of Wed. 28 June 1916 (http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-page17066650).
    (Note: it appears that the two badly torn pages are only 4-5 columns out of a 7 column spread).

    The correct date of the pages can be confirmed from this article:
    1915 'The Anzacs', National Advocate (Bathurst, NSW : 1889 - 1954), 30 June, p. 7. , viewed 26 Apr 2019, http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article157913307

    That article is from 1916, as can be seen in the following articles which include the same text/story (just search for the word "Anzac"):
    -- 1916 'ANZACS PRACTICALLY SUCCESSFUL.', The Bundaberg Mail and Burnett Advertiser (Qld. : 1892 - 1917), 28 June, p. 2. , viewed 26 Apr 2019, http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article215642943
    -- 1916 'Earlier Cables.', The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record (Vic. : 1914 - 1918), 29 June, p. 2. (Bi-Weekly), viewed 26 Apr 2019, http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article74486069
    -- 1916 'THE WAR.', Wellington Times (NSW : 1899 - 1954), 29 June, p. 6. , viewed 26 Apr 2019, http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article137412105

    Also, at the top of page http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-page17045872, the partial date of "Wednesday June 28" can be seen.

    If those pages could be transferred to the correct date, that would be great.
    Thank you.
