LVSYS CMS Modules
In addition to the core features, our CMS comes with additional modules that can be purchased separately. These “plug-ins” are here to help you publish, organize and collect content in different ways. At this time, the following plug-ins are available:
||Modify and design your own templates. Requires some basic knowledge of HTML and CSS. All our sites come with preconfigured templates.
||The event calendar is a full-feature plug-in that lets you create events with accompanying slideshows and pictures. They will be visible on a small calendar and available through a “latest events” box on a home page (for example). In addition, you can set events to be automatically renewed on a set interval, for example, every other week, or every other month. You can have expired events be automatically archived or automatically deleted.
||The news article plug-in is a sophisticated feature that lets you create a newspaper-like website.
You can create articles, article categories, cross-post articles to multiple categories, organize articles within their categories, show slideshows and pictures for each article and each category, search the article base, schedule articles to be visible on a specific date range (ex: just for the Summer) and choose to have articles appear in the Event calendar. Similar to the events, you can choose to expire or auto-archive articles past an arbitrary due date.
||Setup advertising zones and display advertising campaigns. Full reporting module providing real impressions and click data, without search engines or prerendering false impressions or click throughs. Setup permanent campaigns or fixed date campaigns. Give some advertisers more weight than other. This module will generate revenue for your website.
|SEO Audit Module
||Centralize the editing of all SEO meta title, meta description and H1 tags of articles, events, products, business listing and web pages via one searchable screens, making SEO tuning so much more convenient. Search your SEO and make updates to your keywords in seconds.
|CRM - Customer/Contact Management Module
||Record contacts and contact activity every time a new or existing contact interacts with your website, for example when submitting a form, submitting an order, commenting on an article, or any other activity. This module provides a strong core of automated features that are supplemented with manual options so you can efficiently organize your contacts.
|Site Search Feature
||The site search is a plug-in that allows visitors to search your entire website for specific keywords. All content will be searched, and the results will be offered in a simple result list.
|Online Store (e-Commerce)
||The ecommerce plug-in features product catalog and product categories so that you can sell items from your website. The plug-in comes with a shopping cart and the product and product category plug-in are very similar to the event and the article functions. You can display your products in gridviews and by categories, search the product base, let visitors submit reviews (into an approval queue) and buy products off your website.
||The form designer plug-in lets you create all kinds of forms. It is most commonly used to create a contact form to let visitors send you messages. You can design a form with any of the following elements:
- Plain text fields, which can be optionally checked for valid email addresses websites, phone numbers, zip-codes, integers, times and dates.
- Check boxes, for questions with yes/no or true/false type of answers.
- Radio button lists, for questions with a single choice answer.
- Simple lists, for questions with multiple answers.
- Drop down lists.
Additionally, you can insert column breaks, line breaks and informative text (labels) into your forms. You can rearrange each line by dragging it up or down the list. You can also choose which fields are required, and which are not..
||The blog editor is a plug-in designed to write and maintain simple, informal information on a website. The widespread blogging trend makes this plug-in a favorite among our customers.
You can add pictures and slideshows to your blogs and keep them live. The blog plug-in is searchable and provides a calendar so that users can browser through past blog entries.
Our blog plug-in is SEO friendly; all links contain the associated blog entry title making it easy for search engines to index.
||The Photo Galleries plug-in allows a website to host an unlimited number of photo galleries, making it the ideal complement. You can invite visitors to submit pictures taken during an event or any other occasion. It features a similar plug-in as the slideshow editor.
Unlike slideshows, photo galleries show a collection of thumbnail images and a larger picture view side by side so that site visitors can jump to any picture in the gallery.
Visitors will be able to auto-play the gallery showing each picture with a nice fade-in fade-out transition.
|Third Party Integration Scripts
The script is sent through the CMS without validation or parsing, ensuring 100% compatibility with our rendering engine.
|Content Smart Tagging
||Articles, Blogs and Events share a common tagging mechanism with the Integration Scripts, which sllows the CMS to display scripts next to similarly tagged content. This is an efficient way to manage a smart advertising system on your website without the cost of third party Ad systems
||Random quotes are an easy way to communicate information to your visitors. The plug-in displays a line of text that automatically changes at a set interval, or that can be paged through with arrows. It’s the ideal plug-in for displaying short announcements, quick news or random quotes from famous figures.
||This plug-in lets you create your own discount coupons and works much like the Form Designer. Visitors will be able to print, cut and bring coupons to your store. It's a must have for many website with or without the e-commerce plug-in
||This plug-in integrates with a third party booking engine and allows you to book multi-city trips with hotels, attractions, car rentals, airfares and trains. It's a must-have for any travel or tourism organization.
