I've been looking for a tool to help me get from pdf of a print magazine to putting it into our Joomla-based news system. Do you know if this student-faculty web shop has found something to help them with this process? I'm overwhelmed at the PDF-extraction tools out there, most of which provide less-than-great results. Thanks, Bill Sutley, Columbus State University
So for those who have used some of the PDF >> to Flash based page flipping tool, what are some of the added features?
For example, if we wanted to lock down certain newsletters per department or group, is there a way to achieve permission based viewing of the e-magazine? Or maybe a one page teaser and only members can view the whole newsletter or magazine?
Saint Michael's has a simple wordpress.com implementation at http://smcmagazine.com/. The clear benefit is it takes just a day and a half, on average, to put up a new edition, complete. Our prior, customized attempts took much longer.
I also like the ability to keyword and tag these stories - it's been a good method of attracting interest from people who otherwise don't know about the college.
I'll have to say that given the time it took and the fact that almost every page used a different layout that am proud of it, especially the class notes sections in the rear. There is something to be said for lots of index-able HTML code.
We currently use ISSUU (pro version) to display the printed copy of the magazine. However, I'm looking into solutions now to actually have an online presence where it isn't a duplicate version of the printed copy, but rather a host of complementary pieces with videos, photos, etc.
We are using presspublisher.com to host www.sinclair360.com. It took a little tweaking but so far we've been fairly satisfied with it. The company has also been very responsive and helpful.
I spent a number of years working in IT for a magazine publishing company so I set out looking for a CMS that was built for periodicals (and affordable) and not for regular content. The concept of an issue and associated articles is often harder to pull off in a traditional CMS.
