    Web version of FC Mag

    I love reading Full Circle Magazine. The pdf layout of the mag is optimised for wide screens which is good if your reading on a laptop or desktop screen. But most of the time I use my cheap phone to browse the forums and read some blogs using opera mini 4.2
    Sadly my phone don't have a pdf viewer so I can't read the magazine when i'm on the go. Can I request/suggest that the articles have an HTML or web version similar to what the Linux Journal is doing on their older issues?

    We'd love to be able to do web and PDF versions but we don't have enough volunteers to do both.

    A web version would need to have a nice layout, similar to the PDF, so it would take several people to create the web version of it each and every month. And then there's the back issues...

    Uuuuhhhhhh!!! I remember this conversation from two years ago and about every six months after.

    Since I'm no longer in the publishing industry, I'm no longer up-to-date with software tools, and don't know anything that will repurpose native Scribus or pdf to html.

    The other alternative is produce the magazine native in html first then render it to pdf. I think PCLinuxOS do things this way round. Our magazine looks better than theirs! RC
