Therefore links become broken and you have to re-link post courier and then courier again.

Can be slow at times and often won't work well if multiple users are performing similar tasks at the same time.

Umbraco review

Reviewed 5 months ago

We used Umbraco as a system to build the Scouts website. It is extremely well labeled, clear and intuitive. I have found that members of my team who need to use the software for their role are able to pick it up and use it easily.

Pros

Umbraco is an easy to use system which I use daily in my role to build website pages, sharing information with members. Main features which I like the most are that the templates and content blocks are easy to build on for administrators with basic understanding of website building. The labelling is clear and there are a wide variety of content blocks available to add. I find that Umbraco helps to...

Cons

A feature which I think could be improved would be the ability to select and copy entire blocks from one website page to the next. It would also be useful to have more built in analytics of pages, rather than having to use additional add-ons like HotJar. An improvement to the software could be to use AI to improve the search function. When tagging in codex and the SEO, I spend time adding incorrect spellings of words in order for the webpage content to appear in the search bar if a incorrect spelling is made. It would be helpful if the system could identify regular incorrect spellings and add these as TAGs, so this doesn't have to completed manually.

Powerful .NET-based CMS with the possibility of using the cloud or your servers

Reviewed 2 months ago

We have been using this CMS for many years and have used it for many of our clients' projects. There is also a two-week trial version that I think you should try and see how simple it is. It's Powerful .NET-based CMS with the possibility of using the cloud or installing on a local or custom web hosting server.

Pros

It is completely open-source, dot NET-based, and works very fast and smooth. I like the form builder section which is very simple and various forms can be easily created and used. The file and image management section is also very simple. Files and images can be easily categorized and named in custom folders. Also, it has a professional community and support team.

Cons

The online Photo editor is not professional enough and must upgrade. CMS has good facilities and performance on the windows servers and Microsoft Azure, but Umbraco developers must think about the Linux version because most projects are managed by Linux servers.

Katastrophe

Reviewed 2 months ago

Nicht zu empfehlen!

Pros

Ich kann wirklich keine Vorteile erkennen. Es gibt andere viel bessere CMS

Cons

Das CMS ist wirklich nichts für alle die sich ein bisschen Benutzerfreundlichkeit wünschen. Der Aufbau ist absolut wirr und macht teilweise keinen Sinn. Wenn man ein Problem hat sucht man lange nach Lösungen, oft ohne dafür eine Antwort zu kriegen oder man muss sich wieder an den Entwickler wenden. Dieses CMS kann ich nicht empfehlen. Vielleicht wenn man sich gerne viel mit Entwicklung auseinandersetzt aber dann muss man sagen, ist der Ertrag den man für die Zeit und die Leistung reinsteckt jämmerlich. Von mir aus gesehen fehlen auch die absoluten Basics die ein "Freundliches" CMS haben muss. Überlegt es euch gut. Ich nerv mich schon seit Monaten weil ich für einen Kunden der Umbraco benutzt das Online Marketing machen darf.

Umbraco

Reviewed 5 months ago

Generally good. Easy to use, and quick. Sometimes experience errors and deployment failures when too many users are in at the same time. Syncing issues from prep to prod cause problems.

Pros

Easy to use and easier to train other colleagues to use

Cons

Basic functionality at times. Content pages could offer more features. Least thing i like is when you deploy to courier a set of pages, Umbraco isn't clever enough to understand what needs to be deployed in a certain order. Therefore links become broken and you have to re-link post courier and then courier again.

Built our new site using Umbraco and it was easy

Reviewed 5 months ago

Overall, learning Umbraco from scratch six months ago to using it constantly now has been actually quite easy. I'm sure there's lots more to learn, but I think it's been a good upgrade for us.

Pros

What I liked the most was how intuitive it is. For the most part it was very straight forward to building our new public website using widgets and how it is structured. It is a much better CMS than our previous site.

Cons

It does have some interesting quirks, as most do. If you've made too many changes in a row things slow down and you need to refresh to keep it from randomly autofilling places you've already typed, but once you know what you need to do, it's not too bad.

Great CMS

We use Umbraco to manage our websites and deploy content to thousands of users, it's reliable and fast!

Pros

We use Umbraco to manage our websites, it's a great CMS that makes managing a large and popular website slightly easier!

Cons

The system would really benefit from some additional plugins that allow for the backend to be easily customized by admins as user needs change.

Easy to use and great results

Reviewed 5 months ago
Pros

It's much easier to use than a CMS I had used previously. The flexibility to create a range of different webpage layouts, without the need to do any coding is great, and the preview function is particularly useful.

Cons

I haven't come across anything I dislike so far!
