Easy Add Public Interface



Easy.Add.Letter
Our "Easy Add" interface is intended to make public submissions through your web site as easy as possible. The screens are divided into "tabs" or "steps" which walk the web visitor through an easy, intuitive submission process.

Another goal of the "Easy Add" approach is to assist our clients in monetizing portions of their website. For example, calendar event submissions can include options to upgrade the listing or add a visual with an associated cost for each option.

Design: Linear clients have total control over the look and feel of their Easy Add interface. Borders, spacing, fonts, colors and more. Each screen of the Easy Add interface allows our client to place custom messages at the top and/or bottom of the screen for additional explanation or policy considerations.

Calendar
Calendar submissions (see Calendar) can be limited to registered members of the site. Email notifications of submissions are optional. In addition to the predictable controls for required data, extra fields and field lengths, Easy Add Calendar options allow you to:
  • Images: Allow image uploads for either free or a set cost.

  • Links: Allow links for either free or a set cost.

  • Highlighting: Allow highlighting for either free or a set cost. Highlighted listings appear first and will often have larger type, borders and/or custom backgrounds.

  • Combined Cost: Allow for a single cost for all the aforementioned upgrades.

Letter to the Editor
Letter submissions (see Letters) can be limited to registered members of the site. Email notifications of submissions are optional. While there are no upgrades available for letter submissions, you can define up to four additional fields of information (i.e. phone, email, town, etc.). Each additional field can be required and ad /displayed/hidden on the public web site.

Directory Listings
Directory listing submissions (see Directories) can be limited to registered members of the site. Email notifications of submissions are optional. Additional fields for Directory Listings are controlled by the category selected - individual categories can have up to 10 additional information fields and four primary "sort" fields. Basic listings can either be free or a fixed charge. Easy Add Directory options allow you to:
  • Images: Allow image uploads for either free or a set cost.

  • Links: Allow links for either free or a set cost.

  • Upgrade: Allow
  • listing upgrades for either free or a set cost. Upgraded listings appear first and will often have larger type, borders and/or custom backgrounds.
  • Video: Allow a youtube video to be present with the listing for either free or a set cost.

  • Additional Categories: In addition to the listing's primary category, allow the submission to select more categories (up to 5) charging on a per category basis.
Payment for Directory Listings can either be a one-time fee for a finite term (i.e. 1 year) or monthly charges. For finite term listings, the Linear system will disable the listing at the expiration date. For monthly listing, your Linear system is configured to work with Paypal to charge the clients credit card monthly until they choose to cancel payment.

appen newspapersWe have worked with Greg now for about ten years. I expect we'll continue for another ten. When I need help on one of our sites I pick up the phone and call Greg. He fixes it. It is about that simple.
