How IssueM works
IssueM creates a new post type called Articles. You create your articles and assigned them to an issue. Once your issue is ready to go live you simply change your issue to Live status. The last issue created becomes the current issue and is automatically displayed on your current issue page.
All issues are available on your past issues page and are displayed by cover image in a grid layout.
Major components of the IssueM plugin:
- Three article types to publish with: Feature rotator/Feature thumbnail/Standard article
- Cover image widget always displays what issue you are reading
- Current issue articles widget creates a handy navigation for the articles in the currently viewed issue
- iOS and Android app publishing with UniPress
- Extend IssueM with these IssueM Add-ons
