Answers to some common questions...

What is this thing?
It's an online local newspaper for any major town or city in the world - Botosani, Romania in this case.

How do I find my town's paper?
Simply type the name of your town or city into the search box, or use the map on the left to locate yourself. Click on a location on the map to zoom in and re-centre it, or use the + and - buttons to zoom in and out.

Will it remember my location if I come back?
Yes, the site sets a cookie on your browser which stores your longitude and latitude. No other information is stored.

Why did you do it?
I was bored. I had a lot of coastline data sat on my hard drive that I wanted to do something with, so I wrote a little clickable world map in PHP, and it grew out of that.

Where does the data come from?
The data and content on this site come from a number of sources. These include:

Local Content
BBC Travel

Weather Data

Geographic Data

Did you write this all yourself?
In the main, yes, however parts of the back-end code are based on:

PHP Weather
PIA - PHP Interface To Amazon

How many cities / pages are there on this site?
There are currently 3223 towns & cities in the database, which means there's about 32230 unique pages in total.

My newspaper is showing some very weird articles and links. What's wrong?
If you live in a place with a common name, or very obscure name, the system may have trouble finding suitable news items to serve. I'm working on improving the intelligence of the content gathering all the time though.

My town isn't on the map. Can you make me a newspaper?
If you live in a large town that isn't listed, I may be able to add it to the database if you can provide me with the name, precise longitude & latitude, population and country information.

Why is it so slow?
The site retrieves content from a wide range of sources. We do not have all the content stored in a huge local database. When you first request a particular 'newspaper', several requests are sent out to various other sites for the information. Once we have that information, however, it is cached locally. If you reload the page, it should appear much quicker.

Can I advertise on the site?
Yes, you can. Click here to read about geographically targeted advertising options.

Can I link to you or put my local headlines on my own web site?
Yes, you can. See our linking page to find out how.

Is there an RSS feed available?
Yes. Just click the RSS button at the bottom of the front page for an RSS feed of your newspaper. In this case, the URL is:

Do you have RSS feeds of the 'Gossip' page too?
The 'Gossip' headlines are actually taken directly from Localfeeds, who provide provide localised RSS feeds from bloggers around the world.

I've got a really cool idea on how you can improve this. Will you do it?
Possibly. Mail me and let me know your idea.
Cool, thanks! So how do I contact you?
Email me at However, please note that is NOT a newspaper publisher and does not publish stories or press releases or know how to contact your long lost aunt. I cannot answer specific local queries.
