Multi Media Embeds

With internet advances in speed, the options for including multi-media links within your content become more realistic. If only there were a way to easily present these rich content tools. Well, now there is thanks to Linear's demanding clients.

This editorial item features an example set of multi-media. The "Indianapolis" picture has been highlighted to appear in a larger format atop the media embed. Try clicking the multi-media links for the full experience.

With Editorial items and Blog entries you can embed
  • You Tubes
  • Flash
  • Web Pages
  • Quicktime Movies
  • Audio Files
  • Images

These are user-controlled settings for determines the look, placement and feel of the multi-media embed. You can replace, size or eliminate the media icons. You can define CSS containers to enclose almost any portion of the media window. You can even have normal editorial and blog images included within the media presentation

When a web visitor clicks to view the media, it will open in an "overlay" setting which can be closed returning to the parent page. Each media item will allow the visitor to scroll forwards and backwards to other media. The overlay will always adjust to the new media. You can even include "hidden" media - items which don't appear in the multi-media window, but do appear when a user is "scrolling" through the media overlay -great for editorial specific photo galleries.

Management Interface
When working with either Editorial or Blogs, there is an "Attached Media" section. Just click to add an item - Viola! Seriously, you can add any type of media in seconds. There are previews available at all times.

Other Features
You front page presentations can include icons with editorial and blog items which offer these new media tools. Like the media window, the icons are specific to the type of media. Of course, you'll have controls to select, style and size the icons in this presentation format. Click Here for an example of the icon indicators.

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.
