Threading


Competing on the Internet means incorporating advanced features. The ability to link articles together between issues provides readers with more readily available information on a topic. Linear makes this advanced feature a breeze.

At anytime, simply declare a "Thread" - local government, the football team, education - whatever. When adding or editing an editorial item you'll be able to choose among your Threads with a simple pulldown menu and the system will do the rest.

Threaded items will include a small window listing up to the 5 most recent items in the thread. If there are more than 5 items, the system will include a "more" link which lists all the threaded items in a chronologically descending order. It just does not get easier.

Threads connect related topics between issues. Columns are ideal for recurring information such as publisher's notes and routine columnists.

Quotes
smiley pete"Linear publishing has provided a turnkey solution for Mile High Newspapers that far exceeds anything that we could have accomplished on our own. While the capabilities of the system are impressive, what I have found most useful is Linear's willingness to implement new features and its ability to support the ones it has. The Linear system has so many features, that one newspaper will never use them all. I have looked at other newspaper content management systems, but have yet to find one that matches Linear's price, tech support and feature set."
