LightCMS, a NetSuite (NYSE: N) company that provides a powerful, yet easy-to-use cloud-based content management system (CMS), today announced a host of feature enhancements that provide an improved experience for designers, businesses and end customers. These advancements include self-service user profile editing, added user information for easier ecommerce transactions, improved page publishing, an updated Design Manager and more.
These enhancements align and support the LightCMS Developer Program, offering greater flexibility and discount pricing to help web professionals, design agencies and resellers grow their businesses with LightCMS.
“We remain committed to providing a CMS that is flexible, easy to use and functionally rich so that our customers and design partners can continue to build the best websites possible,” said Justin Cowan, Director of Commerce Products at NetSuite. “These new enhancements are the latest step in that commitment and we can’t wait to see what the LightCMS community does with them.”
Among the new feature enhancements LightCMS has recently added to its platform to help design partners and end users streamline and accelerate business growth and meet client demands are:
Enhanced user profiles. This release brings an expanded user profile page that lets registered users edit their profiles and provide additional information, including: home and cell phone numbers, company/organization, Twitter, Facebook, and home and work address, to give businesses greater insight into their customers and expand the available communication channels.

Store users. Enhancements to the LightCMS Store allow customers to create a profile within the company’s ecommerce shop, thereby saving them the time of having to re-enter information in future transactions. When logged into their account, customers can easily and securely view their order history and edit any of their shipping, billing, and credit card info. This feature is available on all paid accounts for an unlimited number of users. Learn more.
Checkout page customization. Website owners can now modify the look and feel of the checkout page by uploading a header, a logo, adding a background color or adding a heading/text color within the buttons on the page. Learn more.
Updated checkout page. New checkout pages are responsive and provide a more intuitive ordering experience. Learn more.
User registration. The new features allow site owners to specify the custom role to which registered users should be assigned, how it’s presented and also allow customized email confirmations. This allows users to register for specific sections or programs on their own. Learn more.
Updated design template manager. The new, more-intuitive design simplifies browsing through the design collections. Now, personal collections and each of the collections in the gallery are displayed together on the design home screen. Clicking a collection displays the designs. Learn more.
Publish date and time. Administrators can now specify when a page becomes publicly available on a website without appearing in any menus or search results until it’s launched. Learn more.
“LightCMS continues to build out the features and functions I need to succeed,” said David Chapman, Owner of Overnight Creative, a website design firm. “These new enhancements are a clear demonstration of that. The new page publishing enhancement is a huge time saver for both me and my clients and the new store user capabilities provides the control and functionality to let customers create an account on checkout, and to access member-only pages and see a personalized area with past purchases. It really makes me look like a larger company. It’s something that other systems don’t or can’t provide, or would cost tens of thousands of dollars to build myself.”
