New Recipes Module

New Recipes Module

April 16, 2012 | 09:32 AM

Added a new module within the Editorial Management area for recipes! The module must be enabled by your Linear representative (call 800-211-2267 it's free). Once enabled, adding and presenting recipes is a breeze. Here are some highlights:
  • Customization: Like almost everything in Linear, you'll have total control over the presentation. CSS containers and styles are easily applied to any aspect of the new recipes module (see CSS).

  • Mobile Ready: The Recipes module is fully compatible with your mobile interface (see PDA interface). Simply create the mobile menu item for "Recipes" and the rest is automated.

  • Dynamic Ingredients: Each recipe includes a value for the number served by the recipe. On your web site/mobile interface simply change the desired servings and the ingredients will recalculate to accommodate the selected servings.

  • Call Elements: The Call Element controls for recipes is fully developed (see Call Elements).

  • Ratings Enabled: The Recipe module has been integrated in the Linear ratings engine (see Ratings). Of course, this feature can be enabled/disabled in your Recipe Defaults.

  • Feedback Enabled: The Recipe module has been integrated in the Linear feedback engine (see Reader Feedback). Of course, this feature can be enabled/disabled in your Recipe Defaults.

  • QR Code: On your web site, each recipe can include a QR code which, when scanned by a mobile phone, will put the recipe on the mobile device - great when heading to the grocery.
While not for every Linear client, we think the Recipes module can be a great tool for driving new traffic to your site.

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."
