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
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."
