LightCMS was built to remove the hassles of hosting, configuration, and maintenance that designers encounter on other systems. We've worked for years and we continue to work every day to improve upon this objective. So, when we came across the following blog comment from a customer who uses both LightCMS and Wordpress, we just had to share it with you. We think it's a great illustration of the many advantages of our CMS.
I recently launched a WordPress site, am currently producing another WordPress site, and am about to start building an approved design-out on WordPress. Keep in mind, I am a huge LightCMS user, and I have over fifteen clients and growing on Light's platform. With these WordPress sites, I've had nothing but trouble. On the first WP site, we finished the build-out of a customized theme on their server, and WP's database/server was causing the site to run extremely slow. So I ended up having to prove to the client it was their server and not our design by installing WP on another server and importing the theme. Of course it ran blazing fast. So now the client has had to go back to her hosting provider, and they have to do database testing, etc. On another WordPress site I recently launched, the day after launch the server went down, and the current customized theme we used has had countless errors, including not being able to upload another WordPress export file of posts. That's bad news.
So I can safely say I've had it with WordPress.
Every issue I've had with LightCMS (all minor) has been handled by their support team and taken care of very promptly and professionally. I love being able to use one login to be able to access all of my clients' sites and to help them out when they need it. We've never even had any server or downtime errors on any of our LightCMS websites. I build on this platform and urge my clients to as well as much as possible.
