Being able to superscript trademark signs
The Sponsored Content department sometimes has to include registered trademark symbols at the client's request. However, since we're unable to superscript them, they stick out and can become quite obvious, especially when there's a lot of them. It'd be great if we could superscript them to not pull our audience out of their organic reading experience. As it stands, the ™ symbol seems to superscript on its own, but it'd be great if it could be made even smaller while still being legible. The ® is even bigger and doesn't superscript at all. Thanks in advance!
Pulse boxes don't appear properly in Chrome
The large text in pulse number articles don't fit on any screen I've checked (3 Android phones and 1 iPhone).
New RSS feeds
Would there be a way to program an RSS feed that would only contain the articles from one author? We need an RSS feed that only has Julia Murphy Stories. We also need one feed that contains all english narcity content ( Narcity Canada with US Content)

Redirection/URL issue with retracted stories
I've noticed a glitch or an error when I am retracting stories. It looks like retracted stories are redirecting to other retracted stories with the same URL/SEO headline. When I retract an article, I must remove the SEO headline and change the SOCIAL headline to "This Article Has Been Removed" however, I noticed that when I check if the article was updated on narcity.com , the URL will redirect me to a different link. E.g. I retracted this story (URL : /en-ca/life/toronto/twitter-discusses-why-scarborough-might-be-the-most-ratchet-place-in-toronto) When I click on the link, it redirects me to a different story that was also retracted on narcity.com back in May. I don't know if this will cause an issue for us down the road, but I wanted to submit it regardless. Every time we retract a story, the URL (this-article-has-been-removed) is duplicated again and again. I'm not sure if this matters or not but I wanted to make sure we look into it just to be sure! url link:/en-ca/life/toronto/twitter-discusses-why-scarborough-might-be-the-most-ratchet-place-in-toronto redirected to: https://www.narcity.com/en-ca/life/toronto/this-article-has-been-removed When you click on the link to see the story on narcity.com you should see this text "This post was removed on November 19, 2020, for not meeting Narcity's editorial standards. More details about our policies can be found here.". Instead, it's redirecting to another retracted story with the same url that was retracted on May 7, 2020.
Associate a location to articles
Request from Ariane: Add location to our articles, so we can see them on a map and know what the Narcity's recommendations are in different areas. Because we're now a travel and things to do reference for a lot of people in the country, it would be like a « Narcity approuve map». For example, I was in Magog last week and I wanted to know what to do, where to eat around there, etc. If our articles were on a map, we could see it more clearly. (Does it make sense how I'm explaining it?) Maybe I'm not the first one to have this idea, but it would be really useful and I think it would add to the user experience.
AMP Versions of Templates don't have styling
When we use templates like Editor's Choice or the Affiliate disclaimer, the styling doesnt work on amp. https://www.narcity.com/amp/14-advent-calendars-for-adults-in-canada-that-you-will-actually-want-this-winter https://www.narcity.com/en-ca/deals/14-advent-calendars-for-adults-in-canada-that-you-will-actually-want-this-winter
Search - Improve the display of the results
Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe. When I enter a keyword in the search field on mobile or desktop, theres no indication to the user that it produced results (this is probably due to the fact that there is an Ad and the Subscribe CTA Banner on top of the results), it gives me the impression that nothing happened. I have to manually scroll down on desktop after I entered a keyword (see video here ). On mobile, I need to tap somewhere else on the screen in order to see that it gave me results. Proposed solution: Desktop & Mobile - Once user hits "return/enter" after typing a keyword, can we show the results at the top and move the Subscribe CTA Banner below? This will indicate to the user that there is results on the page. We can have the Subscribe CTA banner appear after a couple of results. I think that if the user is using the search bar, their objective is to see the results.
