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
times newspapersWhen we realized we needed to upgrade our Web site, we knew we could not do it alone. Linear Publishing more than answered the call. All the new features we were looking for were already in place at Linear. In addition, if we came up with a feature not yet available, they created it.

We now publish two Web sites a week in less time than it took us to publish one. The free time has opened me up to explore new ideas and features to use on our site. It's a great feeling when you can get an idea and in no time have it up and running online. Thanks to it's ease of use, our Web site is getting better and better every day.

We are always getting compliments from our readers and advertisers. With help from Linear Publishing, we are becoming the e-voice of the community that we were striving for.
