automate enhancements


Linear Publishing provides powerful tools to effect the automated enhancement of your Editorial Front and Section Pages. Simply create and define visuals to be used in lieu of editorial section names (i.e. "News" or "Sports") and your Linear system will automatically insert these visuals with each issue.

1. Visuals appear in lieu of editorial section names. 2. Section Pages can feature larger visuals anchoring the section. 3. Each editorial item can automatically include the section visual at the top.

Different visuals can be defined for the Front Page and Section Pages. This allows you to employ a small visual on the main page and a larger visual anchoring the Section Page. Define the visuals once, and Linear Publishing will automate the process going forward.

Go the next step and configure Linear to insert the section visual at the top of each editorial item in the section. This adds color and information to even your most basic editorial.

Using our unique style selector, you can visually promote editorial items on the Front and Section Pages. As shown in the example, you can easily enhance your presentation with no additional work. When adding editorial, simply choose among the three available styles and Linear Publishing will do the rest.

In addition to controlling the font face, colors and sizes, Linear Publishing allows you to individually control editorial items with background colors, spacing, borders, and other features. Make sure when you win an award to thank Linear Publishing.

Section Ads: Naturally, Linear Publishing can be configured to deliver specific rotating ads with an editorial section - that's a given. You'll want the sports ads with the sports section, just like in the print product. Can other vendors automate this ad delivery?

Business Links
Other features allow you to automate the inclusion of information with specific editorial sections. Simply configure Linear Publishing to include your sports links with the sports section - and Linear does the rest - every day, every week, every issue with no additional work from you. We'll go one better, simply choose among Linear's stock link sets (News, Business, Sports, etc.) and a set of national links will appear with the specified editorial section. Also, you can define these links to be included with the editorial items within the section.

It is all automated. Once you define the settings for an editorial section, your Linear system will do the work with each 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."
