    We couldn’t help but notice that Magento recently announced it is doing away with two of its ecommerce platforms – MagentoGo and ProStores. As of February 1, 2015 the 10,000 small and mid-sized online retailers currently leveraging these platforms to run their online storefronts will be evicted and forced to find other ways to run their businesses.

    The women behind Sugarillashop share a passion for fashion.

  • Summer of Love This Week: Separate Product Option Dropdowns

    The Summer of Love continues here at LightCMS and this time, it's our built-in store functionality that's getting a little love with new, improved ways to display your product options. Thus far, all product options have been combined into a single dropdown list on a product's detail page.

  • New Feature: The Store Manager Role

    We've got a new feature coming to the LightCMS platform. It's called the Store Manager role and it will allow you to grant store management capabilities to non-admin users on any website.
