Timeline Controls


While your print publication may be weekly, monthly, or some other irregular frequency, your Web site may feature any entirely different frequency.

This approach is allowed by Linear's unique use of durations for editorial. You can one piece of editorial run for 2 days and another run for 2 years. So, if you added three (3) new editorial items each day - each with a dustation of three (3) days, your daily Web site colud always show 9 pieces of editorial. Each day the three (3) oldest would fall off and the three (3) new items would join the other current items.

This is an especially useful tool for columns and noted content which may not appear in every print issue, but could appear current on the Web site.

When editorial is added to the system, Linear will automatically calculate the dates based on your preferences, but you can return and edit an items duration at anytime.

Easy controls allow you to view editorial items in a "timeline" format where items can be extended for future issues.

Quotes
times newspapersWhen we realized we needed to upgrade our Web site, we knew we could not do it alone. Linear Publishing more than answered the call. All the new features we were looking for were already in place at Linear. In addition, if we came up with a feature not yet available, they created it.

We now publish two Web sites a week in less time than it took us to publish one. The free time has opened me up to explore new ideas and features to use on our site. It's a great feeling when you can get an idea and in no time have it up and running online. Thanks to it's ease of use, our Web site is getting better and better every day.

We are always getting compliments from our readers and advertisers. With help from Linear Publishing, we are becoming the e-voice of the community that we were striving for.
