Management System Enhancements for Elements

Making life easier for our clients


July 27, 2010 | 04:14 PM

Usage Report: As Linear clients design their sites, they can end up with a lot of Elements in their Library. Elements are discrete pieces which can be placed on page layouts. Overtime, these elements may be used and retired on layouts and other portions of the system. New controls will list "Usage" for a particular element detailing which layouts, elements or inclusions use the element in question.

Unused Report: Similar to the the Usage feature listed above, this control will list all Elements which are not in use in the system. Great house-keeping tool for discarding old Elements.

Templates: Call Elements are a staple of Linear Publishing. These dynamic elements pull discrete data from throughout the system. New template controls allow you to base one Call Element on the properties of another. For example, you create a Call Element pulling the Title, Date, Author and Image from the "News" section - looks good. Now, create another Call Element using the first as a template, but select the "Sports" section - all done. The formatting and content structure of the first Call Element are adopted through the template. If you change the original Element all dependent Elements will change as well!

smiley peteFor a small publishing company, with large amounts of content, wanting to make an impressive charge into cyberspace, without prior web-publishing experience, Linear Publishing delivered everything we needed, and even options we didn't know existed, in a quick and effective manner.

Linear's staff worked with us to make sure we had the site we wanted, and the software provided is easy and vast for continuous changes and improvements.

Within a month of launching, the results have already gone well beyond hopes and expectations. I recommend Linear Publishing as far as somebody is allowed to make a recommendation.
