Site Votes

This tool allows for a more in-depth presentation of a poll topic. While similar in functionality to Linear's Poll inclusions (see Poll Inclusions), Site Votes allow for more information to be presented on each item within the poll's population.

Each Site Vote is called a "Topic". A particular Topic is unlimited in how many items may be included. Also, each Topic can be custom designed using Headers, Inclusions and CSS controls.

Other notable features include:
  • Optional Dates: Each Topic can be given a beginning and ending date. The Topic will not appear on your website prior to it's start date, and no additional votes will be accepted after the ending date.

  • Columns: The Topic's items can be displayed in up to 4 columns.

  • Optional Down Voting: In addition to voting "for" an item, each Topic may optionally include the ability to also vote "against" an item.

  • Images, You Tubes and URLs: Each item presented with a Topic can include a URL (i.e. link) and an optional image or You Tube. If an image or You Tube is included, clicking on the item will open the larger image/you tube player in an overlay presentation.

  • Optionally Categories: In the default settings for Site Votes you can enable categories. Apply categories to your Topics and have the site pull the most recent - or featured Topic from applied categories.

  • Voting Frequency: On a per Topic basis, determine how often a person can vote - once, daily, weekly or monthly.

  • Member Based: Optionally, make a voting privileges on a Topic member based.

  • Ad Grouping: Optionally select which set of ads will accompany a particular Topic - great for sponsorship.

  • Custom Page Presentation: Need more design control? Create custom page on your site to present the Topic.
Examples: We're created a couple of on-site examples of Site Votes.

Up/Down Example displayed in a single column.

Up Only Example displayed in a double column with the image as title.

Quotes
times newspapersWhen we realized we needed to upgrade our Web site, we knew we could not do it alone. Linear Publishing more than answered the call. All the new features we were looking for were already in place at Linear. In addition, if we came up with a feature not yet available, they created it.

We now publish two Web sites a week in less time than it took us to publish one. The free time has opened me up to explore new ideas and features to use on our site. It's a great feeling when you can get an idea and in no time have it up and running online. Thanks to it's ease of use, our Web site is getting better and better every day.

We are always getting compliments from our readers and advertisers. With help from Linear Publishing, we are becoming the e-voice of the community that we were striving for.
