Easy In-House Updates

Lightstream’s websites are typically built with WordPress, the most popular content management system (CMS). As an open-source platform, WordPress offers lower setup and maintenance costs and is easy for nontechnical users to manage, update, and edit. This helps eliminate the hassle and expense of relying on an outside programmer for everyday changes.

WordPress Advantages:

  • WordPress is the most popular CMS, used by approximately 75 million websites around the world, including those of CNN, Forbes, the White House, the New York Times, and thousands of financial institutions.
  • WordPress is highly customizable to meet a wide range of requirements.
  • Relying on this popular platform prevents being “locked in” with a development company that built your site with a proprietary CMS. If more customization or development is needed, it is easy to find WordPress designers and developers.
  • From easily buildable contact forms to fully integrated blog and video capabilities, WordPress is a highly customizable platform that is powerful and sophisticated while remaining user-friendly.

Drupal Option:

Lightstream also offers Drupal, another popular CMS option, for clients who prefer to work within this system. If you are interested in comparing the two systems, our team will be happy to explain their relative advantages.
