Custom Page Layouts

Linear does a great job automatically configuring your content - now it gets better with Page Layouts.

Imagine starting with a blank piece of paper and dividing it either horizontally or vertically. Then imagine the ability to divide each piece either horizontally or vertically. Again and again. We call each piece a cell.

Each Cell can be formatted with borders, images, alignment, backgrounds, padding and more. Within each cell you define what content you want pulled from your Linear system. Front Page News - no problem, the 7 most recent public submitted photos - easy, 3 featured coupons, ads - okay. No limits.

Each cell holds up to 13 elements - an element being some data pulled from elsewhere within your Linear system. Naturally, each element includes design controls for backgrounds, borders and more.

Now imagine having multiple layouts that can be applied to your Home Page, any editorial issue or any page within your Linear system. You could change your Home Page layout completely 10 times a day!

Best of all it's completely dynamic. Change your featured coupons and it changes everywhere. Add a new piece of editorial and it's on the site - right where you want it. Change your color scheme instantaneously.

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."
