Page One: Banish Multi-Page Articles

Posted Jul 23, 2011 (updated Jul 28, 2011)

I despise multi-page articles with the heat of a million suns. The Page One extension for Safari and Chrome fixes them, automatically displaying the single-page version of articles for several popular news sites. Install the extension now:

Why This Is Awesome

You know the drill: instead of letting you read articles all at once, too many websites chunk them up into multiple pages, interrupting the flow for the cynical purpose of inflating page views for advertisers. That's not only annoying and time consuming, but it also screws up "read it later" services like the excellent Instapaper. Instead of saving the entire article for later reading, you get only the first page—a big drag if you're using the Instapaper app offline.

Web publishers know this is annoying and so they frequently throw us a bone by offering a single-page view of articles. That's what they should do in the first place, and the Page One extension makes it so. I built the creation for myself for sites I use frequently and so, for the moment, it gives you single-page articles for only these sites:

  • The New York Times
  • The New Yorker
  • The Atlantic
  • Slate
  • Wired
  • Vanity Fair
  • The New York Observer
  • Details
  • Gourmet

Update: July 24, 2011
Version 1.1 of the extension adds support for these additional sites:

  • Businessweek
  • Columbia Journalism Review
  • Foreign Policy
  • GQ
  • Intelligent Life
  • Lapham's Quarterly
  • The Nation
  • The New Republic
  • Outside Online
  • Rolling Stone
  • Village Voice
  • The Washington Post

Let me know if there are other sites you'd like to see supported, and I'll be happy to take a look. Meantime, happy uninterrupted reading!

Update July 27, 2011

Many thanks to everyone for all the suggestions for additional sites, keep 'em coming! I'll take a look at each and every one. A caveat: the way that the extension works is that it silently changes URLs for multipage articles to those of publicly available single-page or print-friendly views. In other words, for me to support a site, it has to have public a single-page or print-friendly view. (The excellent Ars Technica site, for example, requires a paid subscription to get access to the single-page view, a clever perk for loyal readers, but one which means I can't add it to the extension.) Ultimately, whether I can support a site depends on the content management system the site uses. So, feel free to suggest away, and I'll see what I can do!

How to request support for a site

Just add to the comments below. No need to add a comment if your site has already been suggested. When you suggest a site, it would be great if you could also post a URL to a multipage article on that site along with a link to its corresponding print/email page.

If you're code-inclined and enjoy this kind of thing, you can further contribute by helping me identify the URL pattern to use. Some sites simply add a query string like page=all to the URL. Feel free to point that out if you see that pattern. Other sites actually change the form of the URL; The Atlantic, for example, replaces /archive/ with /print/ in the URL itself to get a printer-friendly page. If you like doing regex, feel free to suggest the pattern to pull off this switcheroo. (Not trying to dish off the work to you good folks, but if it's something you enjoy poking at, feel free.)

How does Page One differ from Readability or Safari Reader?

I'm in love with Readability. I am publicly saying here and now, I want to make out with each and every one of the folks responsible. But it's a different take. Readability strips out the page's design, including its navigation. The goal is to send the site away and leave only the content behind. Page One meanwhile leaves the site design in place (in most cases), letting you see the article's entire content without breaking from the site's browsing experience. You don't have to take any action to trigger Page One's functionality, either. It makes its changes silently so that you're getting full content as part of your casual browsing. Page One and Readability are nice complements, I think.

Thanks again for all the good words, folks, and I'll see about implementing your suggestions over the next few days.

Great idea. Can you please add ZDNet to your list?

Jul 25, 2011 2:13pm [ 2 ]

Does ZDNet have multipage articles? Their blog posts (which is pretty much everything now) all seem to be single pagers. Feel free to shoot me a URL to a multipage article over there, and I'll take a peek!

Jul 27, 2011 5:00pm [ 12 ]

Hi gang,

Thanks for the kind words and for the Ars Technica suggestions! I looked at Ars and would've added it if I could. The way the Page One plugin works is that it silently changes URLs of multi-page articles to that of a publicly available single-page or printer-friendly view. In other words, for me to add a site, the site has to offer a single-page view somewhere.

Ars Technica offers single-page views, but only for paid subscribers. a clever perk for folks who care enough about the content to pay for it. Unfortunately, that means that I can't add Ars to the supported sites.

I'll keep an eye on this in case it changes.

Awesome idea. Thanks.

Business Insider (businessinsider.com) has a lot of "10 {Reasons|Ways|Things} {You|Apple|Google} {can|can't} {Succeed|Fail|Win|Lose}" articles. By default these are split into 10 separate pages. There's usually a "View As One Page" link that changes the 10 pages into a single list. Looks like they just add ?op=1 to the end of the URL.

Frederico

Note: many of their articles do an artificial page split, but not all offer a 'View as Single Page'. Tricky.

wow. so many requests for Ars means you like the content. Pay for a premier account then - $50 bucks for a year.. 4 dollars a month. one page view can be set as the default. and do you really want to read 100 pages of Siracusa's review on one page?

Ars subscribers get epub, mobi and pdf versions. if you're to too cheap to pay for Ars Premier, then you can get that article for 5 bucks from amazon (there's a kindle version).

Marco Arment (author: Instapaper) respects the one page boundary at Ars. You should too.

http://www.marco.org/2011/07/19/siracusa-multipage

I respect Ars Technica’s choice to keep single-page versions of long articles as a subscriber-only feature. If you want to save John Siracusa’s huge Lion review to Instapaper as one long page tomorrow, please support their business and buy an Ars Premier subscription.

Chullo
Jul 27, 2011 5:35pm [ 29 ]

Safari's reader option allows you to read the entire Siracusa review on a continuous page. Any idea how apple gets that to work? Maybe it could be incorporated into the plugin somehow

This breaks the relationship between Disqus threads and articles at the Atlantic. If I click on a Disqus link (in email) I get sent to the print page, not the still live one. Not sure how it's doing that (does it look for a print style sheet and then just display that version?). So I can't use it yet.

Jul 30, 2011 3:31pm [ 94 ]

For Slate articles reached via an RSS feed, they append “?from=rss”, which breaks the regex detection. Here’s a patch that should work but I haven’t tested yet: https://gist.github.com/1115893

I second the request for startribune.com. Looks to me like "?page=all" appended to the URL is all it takes...

Scott
Jul 31, 2011 11:35pm [ 97 ]

For the Washington Post, the extension currently redirects from the paginated view (ending in story.html) to the printable view (ending in print.html). It should instead probably use the single-page view (ending in singlePage.html), which uses the normal story formatting but with all the content on a single page rather than paginated. I find that much more readable. (When the Post’s redesign first went up a few months ago, there was a link to the single-page version in each multi-page story. They’ve stopped displaying that link now, but the single-page version still exists for each story if you enter the proper URL.)

In general, for sites whose only single-page view is the printable view, it would be nice if the extension offered an option about whether to redirect the user or not. I hate multi-page articles, but I arguably hate printable view in a web browser even more, and so would prefer not to be forwarded to the printable versions (although Safari’s can format those nicely with its “reader” button).

Thus, this URL: http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/college-affirmative-action-back-on-supreme-courts-horizon/2011/07/28/gIQApXnwlI_story.html

Currently forwards here: http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/college-affirmative-action-back-on-supreme-courts-horizon/2011/07/28/gIQApXnwlI_print.html

But should instead go here: http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/college-affirmative-action-back-on-supreme-courts-horizon/2011/07/28/gIQApXnwlI_singlePage.html

I just treat this stupid fad as another IQ-test.

If you are a multi-page-whore, nothing you have to say is worth reading anyway.

One page load, or one pant load.

Minor bug report: the Chrome extension(? - I haven't tested the Safari version) appears to naively whack the query parameter at the end of the full URL; thus if you're direct-linked to a URL with a hash fragment it won't work. Example.

Other than that, this is the Best Thing Ever.

The Washington Times – just make sure "/?page=all" is at the end of the article URL.

Page One is a great extension!

The extension currently breaks the “email this” link on New York Times articles, which works via a hidden POST form submission and some javascript. In fact, by trying to redirect to a new URL without catching the form values, it will break any POST submission. Not sure if there’s a good fix to that other than finding and whitelisting all of the form submission URLs. In general, the extension (somewhat understandably) isn’t too smart about NYTimes pages; I’ve seen it add ?pagewanted=all to .jpg’s, to pop-up pages (e.g., clicking an image for the larger view in a pop-up window), and at least once I’ve seen ?pagewanted=1&pagewanted=all, which obviously shouldn’t happen either!

Love the extension. Another NY Times glitch: When one is not logged in, attempting to log in with the extension enabled does not successfully keep you logged in. You notice this when you get the pop-up window telling you your 20 free articles are used up. A workaround is to temporarily disable the extension, then log-in, the reenable the extension.

For the Atlantic, the extension seems take away the links in an article (doesn't happen with the NYT so I assume that is just the way the Atlantic rolls). I like the links there and the online articles are short. It would be great to be able to disable the extension for specific sites.

Thanks for the service!

Love it, but it conistently breaks Wired's blogs. It seems likely that as you add new sites, more and more will break for whatever reason, and upkeep will be a growing problem; and, of course, the vast majority of users will never figure out why they're getting 404s - it took me quite a while.

Maybe you should breaking it out a bit, with (a) a config page, and (b) a feed allows you to add new sites. Right now, to see a Wired blog item, I need to disable the extension; it would be much nicer to click a box exempting Wired from Page One.

Creative Loafing (Atlanta's alt weekly). Example of multipage story: http://clatl.com/atlanta/living-walls-welcomes-global-street-artists-thinkers-to-atlanta/Content?oid=1981611

Url for 2nd page: http://clatl.com/gyrobase/living-walls-welcomes-global-street-artists-thinkers-to-atlanta/Content?oid=1981611&storyPage=2

Url for viewing as a single page: http://clatl.com/gyrobase/living-walls-welcomes-global-street-artists-thinkers-to-atlanta/Content?oid=1981611&showFullText=true

Also, Creative Loafing also owns the Chicago Reader (both CLATL and the Reader are in the top 20 alt weeklies in the US), Washington City Paper and maybe a few others, so it's possible if they are on the same CMS, they fix could work for all.

Hi, Can you add support for the new Pittsburgh Post-Gazette website? It is currently on http://ppgnow.com, but will soon (<2 months) be on the http://post-gazette.com domain. It should be much easier to add support for this site than the old one:

  • Initial page load: http://ppgnow.com/stories/local/state/nations-eyes-focused-on-sandusky-hearing-59288/
  • Second page: http://ppgnow.com/stories/local/state/nations-eyes-focused-on-sandusky-hearing-59288/?p=2
  • All pages: http://ppgnow.com/stories/local/state/nations-eyes-focused-on-sandusky-hearing-59288/?p=0

Thanks!

Jan 13, 2012 12:54am [ 124 ]

Josh,

Your Chrome plug-in ROCKS. Here's a suggested site and I've done the URL breakdown for you -- it's extremely easy.

Normal Page That Requires You to Click from Page to Page
- http://www.businessinsider.com/mark-sanchez-endorsements-2012-1

To "View as One Page", they just add "?op=1" to the end of the page's URL.

Full Page Requiring No Clicking
- http://www.businessinsider.com/mark-sanchez-endorsements-2012-1?op=1

Any chance that would be easy to add to the plug-in? :-) :-) :-)

I only ask because I love the coverage businessinsider.com does across Tech, Sports, Business, etc. Just the interesting stuff worth reading.

Thanks and keep up the great work!

Jan 17, 2012 2:07pm [ 126 ]

Josh,

I made a small change to the Chrome extension (haven't looked at the Safari version yet) to avoid adding pagewanted=all to NYTimes links that already have a pagewanted= in the URL (this enables getting to the print-formatted page, for example). I tried to make it generalizable to other sites, but haven't tested it.

Here's the diff:

Josh, this is a really useful extension — thanks.

Unfortunately, when enabled (in Safari), the extension breaks the account management pages at https://homedelivery.nytimes.com, making it impossible to update subscriber billing info. It would be helpful if extension allowed specific subdomains to be excluded.

Please add http://www.alternet.org

To get the single-page version of an article they just add the following query string to the URL: ?paging=off

Here's an example: http://www.alternet.org/glenn-greenwald-how-marriage-equality-movement-uprooting-centuries-religious-and-social-dogma?paging=off

Could you do that automatically to long stories on their site?

I think there's a new issue with Village Voice; opening this link [http://www.villagevoice.com/2013-04-24/news/stoya-pop-star-of-porn/] with the extension turned on launches into an endless refresh loop. But I can open this link [http://www.villagevoice.com/2013-04-24/news/stoya-pop-star-of-porn/full/] explicitly without an issue.
