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
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."
