Easy Add Obituary Listings

April 15, 2012 | 04:14 PM

We've been converting to an "Easy Add" tabbed entry for common items where the public and/or members are submitting information.

The Easy Add approach has now been added to Obituary Listings. Features include:
  1. Maximum character controls for the description within the listing.

  2. Free form fields allow you to add extra response information you may desire outside the normal obituary information (i.e. "Are you interested in having the obituary included in our print edition?").

  3. Email Notification: Optionally, add an email address to be notified when new obituaries are submitted.

  4. Base Cost: Optionally, apply a base cost for an individual obituary.

  5. Image Controls: Enable and apply a per image price (optional) for including images (up to 10 images) with the obituary.

  6. Video: Enable and apply a price (optional) for including a full-size you tube video with an obituary.

  7. Condolences: Enable and apply a price (optional) for including a condolences feature with a listing. If enabled, the individual obituary will allow the general public to submit condolences through your web site.

  8. Highlights: Enable and apply a price (optional) for highlighting an obituary. Highlighted listings can have different borders/backgrounds and fonts.


With Obituary listings, the Easy add interface includes tabs for Specifics, Options (paid features!), Review/Preview, Payment and Confirmation. With each step you can include custom messages/instructions at the top and bottom of each page.

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."
