Features Beyond your Reach



/editorial/15152.412112/CalendarPuzzle.gif
Linear's Web site calendar system is without peer in allowing our customers to maintain extensive community calendars. The calendar system was originally designed as a holding bin to be exported to the print publication - so you will be keeping your Web site up-to-date while making your print staff more efficient.

Completely customizable, your Web site calendar can reach decades into the future. Multiple search interfaces allow visitors to quickly find any information they seek.

Recurring Event Capabilities
Enter events once to repeat indefinitely - or until a scheduled expiration date. You linear system can handle irregular weekday events (i.e. Tues & Thurs), weekly events (i.e. Every Thrus), monthly events (i.e. on the 15th of each month), irregular monthly events (i.e. on the 2nd Thursday and 3rd Friday of each month) and of course annual events.

Download
In less than a minute, you can export the calendar data for a specific time range. The exported content is embedded with Quark/Indesign style sheet tags for immediate layout in the print product. Exported events can be sorted by date, category - even venue!

Multiple
For heavy users, the Linear system can be configured to offer multiple calendars - each with its own sub categories. Need one calendar for Night Life and another for Family -- no problem. Each calendar can be independently configured for design, content, ads and more.

Client Based
Calendar events can be easily tied to local advertisers and businesses. With a click, your Web visitors can view just the calendar events for a specific account. Best of all, the account's calendar listings can contain events not found on the main Web calendar. With a username and password, your client can add their own events which are stored for your review prior to being made available on the Web site.

Public Submissions
Your linear calendar system can be configured to allow the public-at-large to submit events. Again, these events are stored for your review prior to posting to the Web site.

Visuals
Naturally, you can place a visual with any calendar event for maximum impact. Each visual may be aligned, captioned, bordered and shadowed.

Lay-out controls
Beyond the controls for configuring the look and features of your calendar, you can apply specific designs to individual calendar entries. Background colors, borders and type control allow complete customization when an event really needs to be brought to the front.

  1. Embedded internet links

corydonI've had a great experience with Linear Publishing. The system was easy to learn, and Greg and his staff are always available to answer any questions I may have.

Our readers are apparently liking the results, too, because our visits to the web site have tripled this year.
