Typical Linear clients use Issue dates to group editorial items for presentation on the Web site and in the archives. Although individual editorial items can span issue dates, what about publications, supplements or other items which may not fall into a regular issue? No problem, Linear provides the ability to add "Special Issues".

These Special Issues act very mush as a normal issue with a few exceptions:
  • Special Issues do not appear in the archives.


  • Special Issues have link controls which make it easy to create menu items and ads which link directly to the issue.


  • Special Issues have no Date information associated with the individual editorial items


This is a great tool for seasonal or annual supplements. You can create the Special Issue and leave it on your Web site for an extended duration. Combine the Special Issue with a "Pic Paper" presentation (see Pic Paper) and you have the best of both worlds.

Special Issues can have custom present pages, custom ads and custom layouts - just about anything you need to deliver your vision. Of course,the content of a Special Issue is fully searchable along with all the active editorial on your site.

Welcome to Indianapolis is an example of a Special Issue.

Quotes
smiley peteFor a small publishing company, with large amounts of content, wanting to make an impressive charge into cyberspace, without prior web-publishing experience, Linear Publishing delivered everything we needed, and even options we didn't know existed, in a quick and effective manner.

Linear's staff worked with us to make sure we had the site we wanted, and the software provided is easy and vast for continuous changes and improvements.

Within a month of launching, the results have already gone well beyond hopes and expectations. I recommend Linear Publishing as far as somebody is allowed to make a recommendation.
