The embed code we announced two weeks ago is now available to everyone.

Copy paste the embed code!

Now you can copy paste directly from the the embed code to insert a PageOneX visualization in your site. Check at the bottom right and share your PageOneX dataviz where you need them.

It still needs some fixes of height and zoom level, but I am sure you will work it out.

Besides, we’ve also redesigned the display view to make it more compact and show the dataviz in a more prominent way. We’ve also avoided the duplication of the topics list.

Tell us how do you like it.

Old and new designs.



Now you can embed a PageOneX thread in your site:

You can check this thread at PageOneX > Corrupción España. Octubre 2013.

To get the embedded version you just need to add “/embed” at the end of the url
and embed that web page with an iframe.
This version of the display view is the same as the normal thread, but wihout the header (navigation bar, description, vertical legend) and footer.
You will have to play with the scale and height of the div and iframe to make it look good.

Code to embed:
<div id="wrap" style="width: 100%; height: 490px; padding: 0; overflow: hidden;">
<iframe style="width: 1280px; height: 700px; -ms-zoom: 0.68; -transform: scale(0.68);
-moz-transform: scale(0.68); -moz-transform-origin: 0 0; -o-transform: scale(0.68);
-o-transform-origin: 0 0; -webkit-transform: scale(0.68); -webkit-transform-origin: 0 0;
max-width: none; overflow: hidden; border: 1px solid white;"

Another example about Coverage of Gezi Park protests in Turkish newspapers last June.

This post is the newsletter that is sent to all the subscribers and people at the PageOneX users’ list.

Here is a compilation of all the things related to PageOneX that had happened in the past weeks. From now on, I hope I can make this more often.

Feaured threads

There have been good threads on PageOneX recently. I list here some of them:

Protesters or Vandals? How the traditional media approached Brazilian protests in June 2013 by Débora Leal.
Thread available at PageOnex: Violence x Protest

How 3 Colombian newspapers covered the agricultural strike? My analysis with @pageonex (in Spanish) by @Amelrame.
Based in the thread in PageOneX: Análisis Paro Agrario.

results La crisis de Pescanova en la prensa gallega
The collapse of Pescanova in Galizian newsapers
by @mcshuibhne. He analyses how the local newspapers from the Galicia, a region in Spain covered the collapse of the food company, debt of €3.6bn. I found interesting how he used the tool: highlighting in red the absence of coverage on the topic, and then classifying by type of heading (importance by h1, h2, h3). The percentage of surface is not useful in this case.
Based in the thread in PageOneX Pescanova.

#occupyGezi coverage in Turkish and International newspapers vs Twitter  Check the live threads at PageOneX OccupyGezi in International newspapers and OcccupyGezi in Turkish newspapers  Coded with @matrushka, @bilgenkurt and @numeroteca.


I’ve opened myself a month by month on Spanish corruption coverage. You can check all the threads unter the colorcorrupción category or in the specific Tumblr Besides the daily analysis, I’ve started a monthly review (September 2013) with more graphics using the export data feature at PageOneX. Last available thread at Corruption in Spain in September 2013.

If you wan to see your thread featured here, just comment this post. There is also a gallery of PageOneX cases at Pinterest.

PageOneX development

We changed the license of the code to a GNU AGPL v3, that suits better a web app like PageOneX, after the suggestion by a user related to the GNU project.

Some folks are trying to make their own PageOneX deployment in Heroku or elsewhere. We included an installation guide in the wiki and how to do it in Heroku. thanks to David Cabo for he advice.

There had been a lot of small improvements to make the tool more robust. Check the commits! With Edward L. Platt and Rahul Bhargava, from the Center of Civic Media, we keep fixing bugs.

Coverage of PageOneX: covering the coverage

There was an interesting article/interview in, a Spanish online newspaper, on PageOneX: Analyzing newspaper discourse with free software (Spanish) by @PauLlop.

PageOneX was featured in Euskadi Innova a public website for innovation in the Basque Country.

There was a post on PageOneX for the 6th congress on Research on Information and Communication in Madrid, Spain.

Thanks everyone for using PageOneX. It helps us to make it better!
