By using GNWeb, editorial users publish to the web as easily and seamlessly as publishing to print. GNWeb’s One-Click-to-Web feature instantly publishes any article with the correct graphics, headlines, byline, body copy, metadata and electronic content. Newspapers using GNWeb are able to continuously update fast breaking stories and keep readers returning to their website to view those updates.
When integrated with the article-based GN3/GN4 content management system, GNWeb selects only those article components that are slated for a particular website. When the article is published it appears in the correct section and subsection of the website, properly formatted and ready for viewing. Other than clicking once, no manual, special or scheduled processing is necessary.
The article-based content management allows the publisher to define an article structure as part of system configuration, rather than through customisation. Through system configuration, the publisher can specify a presentation destination for each story element. For example, a headline may be marked as being for a particular website, print title or other channel, or some combination of title and media. An article can contain electronic-media items such as audio, video, flash, polls, metadata, geocoding and of course, hyperlinks.
At anytime, an appropriately privileged user can send an article direct to the web with a single mouse click.
