Misc Refinements

April 20, 2012 | 03:21 PM

Just a quick note about some additions within the Linear system.

Zip Code Qualifiers for Subscribers: Some linear clients want to offer different subscription packages to people inside or outside their area. We added "Zip Code Qualifiers" to help meet this demand. Enabled in the Subscriber Defaults, you simply enter a list of zip codes. When creating subscriber packages, you'll be able to choose if a particular package is available to persons inside or outside the qualified zip code list. Works like a charm.

Right-side Scroll Up Arrow: On both the public Web site and the Management system we added a right-side arrow which only appears if a person has moved down the page by an appreciable amount. When clicked, the window scrolls back to the top. This is an automated feature; however, users can define their own arrow image in the Internet Defaults.

Action Items Expanded: We applied the action bar (i.e. Print, Email, Share, etc.) to Obituaries and Editorial Lists.

WYSIWYG Filter: We enhanced our WYSIWYG interface to provide a more true web interface. Try it. Just like before, but much more predictable appearance on the Web 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."
