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 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."
