LightCMS Features In Depth

Drag and Drop Design

Among the many advanced design tools that users of LightCMS can enjoy, the ability to drag n drop various elements while building forms and tables is the most prominent and useful for those who don’t have any coding knowledge and experience. With this feature, designing a web interface, adding buttons and setting up slideshows becomes easier than ever.

All you need to do is hop to the design tab and choose one of the many templates available to start with. You may then choose to further customize the chosen theme through the left sidebar where all available options lie. From there you can drag n drop elements onto the main screen, change their attributes and style, and fix their positioning. Their size and shape is comfortably auto-adjusted according to the frame of its position.

Cloud Hosting

For a web developer’s success, it is of key importance to be able to provide seamless hosting to his/her clients, enjoy automated client charging and stay secured with frequent updates that are done in the hosting server level by the LightCMS developers. This way, the creator or the manager of the websites stays fully focused on the task of content management, and the e-commerce entrepreneurs can develop their business plan undistracted.

The quality of the hosting and security of the provided cloud network is guaranteed by the experience and infrastructure of the ever-growing California-based NetSuite Inc that employees more than 2550 professionals. Their services include support via email and twitter, creation of comprehensive how-to videos, product updates and advising.

Mobile Platforms

Reaching out to mobile devices and their respective users is of critical importance nowadays. Most people are currently connecting to the internet using a variety of mobile platforms, with a plethora of devices, browsers and screen sizes that are available today, it is increasingly difficult to stay compatible with all the above mentioned.

Thankfully for LightCMS users, the software offers advanced tools with which fully mobile-compatible content can be created. The images and design elements of a website created with LightCMS are auto-adjusted to the screen size of the visitor’s device, while optimizations for responsive design makes the websites more touch-friendly. The platforms supported are Android, iOS, Windows Mobile and Blackberry.

Online Store

Whether you are selling digital goods or physical products, the LightCMS e-shop creation and management tools set will amaze you with its power and ease of use. You can accommodate promotional needs with secure dedicated download links, deliver updated products to previous customers, set sophisticated product and cost options and even import products from an existing CSV file.

The way product lists, inventories, checkout pages, tags and categories are tailored and updated through the dashboard is a walk in the park for even the most novice and inexperienced e-merchandisers out there. The payments can be accepted through PayPal or credit card, while the total cost is auto-calculated according to the inputted weight of the product and the provided local tax data.

Partner Platform

For web developers that have to deal with multiple websites and clients, there is the Partner Platform that comes at an attractive price and powerful set of options. On top of the discounted website subscription rate, you get access to the LightCMS Forum to interact with other LightCMS Partner Platform members and gain insider knowledge about upcoming LightCMS features. With gold-level support services, adjustable client auto-billing, dedicated account manager and a free of charge website for your business, you will literally have nothing to worry about.

New websites are added with just one click, and no charging is activated before the development is 100% completed. Disabling/enabling and updating the added websites is done with a few more clicks, while detailed metrics and reports are provided by LightCMS, so getting an overview of your websites’ traffic is a simple and joyful task.

Brian May

We've been building sites for 15 years. We built 40-45 sites on LCMS....do make that mistake!

2018-07-20

Pros

That's why we moved to this platform for our clients in need of an easy and affordable solution to something custom. After building on the platform for 2 years we're finding their customer service is the WORST we've ever experience.

Cons

The platform is more limited than their website makes it out to be and once again the customer service isn't just bad, it couldn't be better.
