Forums are like message boards. You Define a main theme - a Forum - then Web visitors post topics. Each Topic then becomes a stream of messages relating to that topic. Forums are always listed chronologically in a descending order so people see the most recent offerings first.

Think of these as central community forums. You'll be able to name the Forums (i.e. Education, Local Politics, etc.) and provide a brief description. If activated, your Web visitors will first go to a page listing and describing the various Forums with links to continue on to a specific area. Forums can configured for guest viewing (i.e. non Users) - even allowing guests to add content. Also, Forums can be equipped with passwords to limit participation.

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."
