Single Management, Multiple Sites
Linear is designed to allow multiple sites share data.

For example, if you had 4 linear sites we might add a 5th site to control the other four. From the master site, you could place ads, polls, business listings and more on one or more of the four "children sites".

This allows a group of publications to share a main control site while providing each of the publications their own identity.

Currently, Linear allows cross site data of the following nature:Here are links to two of six site sharing a common management system - Homer Horizon and Orland Park Prairie.

Single Site, Multiple Publications
Alternatively, multiple publications can be run on a single site using a particular Linear configuration. But here, you are limited to targeting editorial, letters and obituaries to particular publications within the same site.

Here is a link to 10 publications sharing a common site - Denton Publication. Check under the menu item "Local News" for the various publications. With thoughtful use of Linear's page layouts and call elements you can deliver individual front pages, but eventually with classifieds, business listings and more you have a shared site.

quotes
SMDP"After years of subpar online publishing services, we discovered the answer to everything we were looking for in Linear Publishing. Linear is so easy to use and so quick to respond that our site was up in no time. Their online manual is invaluable but their staff is also extremely responsive. They have so many features that we may never use but they are there if and when we want to use them. Most recently, we created our mobile site. Within an hour it was up and running. Linear far exceeds their competition and our expectations."
