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 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.
