Navigating noovell

There are different ways to look for news on noovell.

The quickest way to find articles is to type in a keyword in our search bar. The search bar is located below the world map on our main page and at the top of each sub-page.

If you are looking for news from a particular country or region, you can use our geographic navigation. The regional riders at the top of each page (World, North America, Latin America, Europe, Africa, Middle East, Asia, Oceania) will lead you to a list of countries (or in some cases states or provinces) for you to choose from.

Alternatively, you can simply use the world map on our main page and click on the country you are interested in.

If you want to take it in all at once, our “All News” page is the right place for you. This page can be accessed via the “All” rider at the top right hand side of our website. On our “All News” page, we collect all news stories from our website on a rolling basis.

What’s with all the colors?

Since we feature articles from all over the world, it is easy to lose track of where an article was written. This is why we are indicating the country or region of origin for most of our news sources at the bottom of each news window.

On top of that, we have adopted a color system for our news windows for easy reference. Each color corresponds to one of the regions on our world map:

North America
Latin America & Caribbean
Europe
Africa
Middle East
Asia
Oceania.

So if, for example, you come across a news window with a red rim, this would mean that the article was published by a news provider based in Asia.

Our + button

Our + button can be found at the bottom right hand side of each news window. Once you tap the + button, additional buttons will appear, each with a different function for you to choose from.

By clicking the respective buttons, you can share articles with other people via facebook, twitter, Linkedin, e-mail, and WhatsApp (if you are accessing noovell from your phone). If you no longer wish to see articles from a particular news source, simply tap the “Unfollow this publication” button.

On noovell, you can also save articles and news stories to your personal account. For one, there is the noovell or “n” button, which enables you to add an article to one of your Journals. The default setting is the Journal “Read Later” but you may create an unlimited number of other Journals based on your fields and topics of interest. Finally, you can also save an article by using the heart-shaped “Like” button - all liked articles will be saved and accessible on your “Profile” page.

A special feature of our website is the button “Related articles from other sources”. After clicking this button, you will be able to access articles from other news providers on the same or a similar topic as the original article.
