'Current Issue' Page - Custom
With the 'custom' option publishers can replace the standard page with one they design & maintain themselves. Publishers may include any content in custom pages, which might, for example, include links to their own website*.
Editing and Control:-
The other benefit of being able to edit the page directly is that the publisher can change and update the page as frequently as they wish - to include news items for instance, or details of special offers.
It's not free...
But the cost is nominal - just £1 per month per page, which goes towards the cost of providing this functionality and hosting the pages. Magazine Exchange subsidize this service in the interest of improving the quality and usefulness of the information which appears on the website..
How to create a Custom page:-
The first step is to request that a 'blank' custom page is set-up, and control of it assigned to you - this is done by completing the appropriate web-form in the 'Contribute Content' area of your Seller Account. Once the new page has been created it will appear within the 'Promotion Pages', area of your account, and can be edited and maintained in the same way as other Promotion Pages. The only difference is that 'About this title' pages are limited to an overall width of 650 pixels because of the way they appear on the website.
*The value of links:-
The ability to set-up inbound links to their own website is itself is a valuable reason why publishers should consider setting-up custom pages.
