Automated Headers

April 29, 2012 | 08:00 PM

Linear Publishing has extensive tools and defaults for creating "Headers" for the pages of your site. As you edit your defaults - all the Headers on the site will change.

Headers can also be tied to other Headers. As you change the characteristics (i.e. CSS containers and styles) of the controlling Header, all dependent Headers will change as well.

Now we've added "Auto Headers" and "Auto Header Templates". You don't even need to create the Header anymore. Where applicable (i.e. Directory Categories, Blogs, Site Tags), select "Auto" for the header. The system will build the Header based on your defaults using the title and description of the contextual information. Like all other headers, change your defaults and the Auto headers will change as well.

Auto Template Headers allow you to define one or more CSS headers to be available as templates for Auto Headers. Simply select a template and the Auto Header will be built from the characteristics of the controlling template. Change the template header and all dependent headers change as well.

This approach allows you to make sweeping global changes to your site. Imagine after a year - or a week - you want to change your color scheme of font profile. Just change your Header Defaults and the site has a new look.

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."
