Umbraco FAQs

Umbraco Free is the free version of the open source CMS. It is described as an Umbraco version for “Sites with no need for technical support and assistance.” Other versions of Umbraco CMS include Umbraco Professional and Umbraco Enterprise, both of which are paid for and include access to support as well as features and addons.

Umbraco is a flexible and powerful content management system (CMS) that can be used for a wide range of use cases, including:

Corporate Websites: Use Umbraco to build corporate websites. The CMS is especially suited to companies that require a high degree of customisation, flexibility, and integration with other systems and tools. Despite Umbraco’s developer-oriented approach, creating and managing content for your corporate website is pretty straightforward.

E-commerce Websites: Umbraco doesn’t have built-in eCommerce functionality. That doesn’t mean you can’t use it to power your online store. Third-party add-ons can be used to add eCommerce functionality, or opt for a custom-built solution.

Digital Marketing Websites: Umbraco is a great CMS for building digital marketing websites such as microsites and campaign sites. With its flexible architecture you can easily create custom landing pages and marketing campaigns that are tailored to your audience and that support your marketing objectives.

Intranets and Extranets: Umbraco can be used to build internal company portals such as intranets and extranets. These portals can be used to share information, documents, and resources within your company or with external partners, and can be customised to meet your specific needs.

Content-Rich Websites: Umbraco is a good fit for building content-rich websites such as blogs, news sites, and online magazines. It’s a CMS, so managing large volumes of content and creating custom templates is easy.

Umbraco is known for being developer-friendly so it may not be the easiest CMS for beginners to use. But, it can be a good choice if you have some prior development experience in the Umbraco technology stack, or if you’re a beginner eager to jump on that learning curve.

There are plenty of resources available on the internet to help you get started with Umbraco. These include tutorials, documentation, and a community of developers who are willing to offer assistance and advice.

Here are a few ways to get started with Umbraco:

Visit the Umbraco website: The Umbraco website is a great place to start and provides links to different types of learning resources. Download the software, read documentation and get an overview of the platform. Check out their blog for the latest Umbraco tips and tricks, or click through to their YouTube channel for in-depth tutorials.

Join the Umbraco community: Find out what to learn and get help as you progress with the help of an active and supportive community. You can find help and guidance on the Umbraco forum and connect with other users in the community.

Take online courses: There are many online courses that can help you learn Umbraco including the official Umbraco training courses. You can find these courses on the Umbraco website or through third-party providers.

Read books: There are several books available that cover Umbraco, including “Umbraco User’s Guide” by Nik Wahlberg and Paul Sterling and “Umbraco .NET Core Mastery” by Jon D. Jones.

Attend events: Umbraco holds conferences and events all over the world such as the annual Umbraco Codegarden conference. These events offer a great opportunity to learn from experts and connect with the Umbraco community.

Experiment with the software: One of the best ways to learn Umbraco is to start using it. Download the software, create a website, and start exploring the features and functionality. You can also experiment with templates and modules to learn more about customisation options.

By using these resources and taking a hands-on approach, you can learn how to use Umbraco and start creating and managing websites with this powerful CMS.

Umbraco can be integrated with other platforms or systems in a variety of ways, depending on what you want to achieve. It is built on .NET technology, allowing for simplified integration with systems or platforms built using the same stack. Custom code can be used to create custom modules, integrate with external databases, or connect to other web services.

Umbraco Heartcore includes the RESTful API which can be used for “omnichannel delivery” (according to Umbraco), which is a fancy way of saying content can be pushed to a front-end on pretty much any device loaded with a browser.

Umbraco also supports webhooks, which can be used in automation sequences in other systems or platforms. For example, a webhook can be used to trigger a message in a messaging platform when a new item is published in Umbraco.

And since it’s a modern CMS, it supports integration with various web-based services and APIs such as those available for Google Analytics, Salesforce, and Mailchimp.
