Umbraco is one of only a few CMSs built on the Microsoft .NET Framework and as such, it flawlessly integrates with Microsoft word, allowing you to edit your web pages in Microsoft Word or even whilst offline. The Umbraco content management system gives web developers the freedom to build a unique and highly customised site and is used by many large corporations who have highly complex websites.
You don’t need to be a web developer to use Umbraco to blog, just add the blog module and you can edit and publish your posts, add images or videos and manage your archives and tags all from one screen. A great feature of Umbraco is the visual directory tree in the left sidebar, which makes it easy to understand and manage the content of your website.
Creating any type of page is simple in Umbraco. You can easily drag and drop images, videos and audio files into your landing page, change the background, themes and headers, add Google Maps and reorder pages all in the one screen. Using the Form Building package you can add any type of form you need to your pages, from a simple contact form to a complex, multi-step survey, all without using code.
Creating an online ecommerce store in Umbraco is easy. Just select the eCommerce module - set up takes only a few minutes and you have a powerful ecommerce solution ready to populate with your products and start selling. Payment gateways and shopping carts are built-in, making for a streamlined and user friendly experience.
Unique to this CMS is Umbraco.tv, a website that offers more than 6hrs of video tutorials on building and using an Umbraco website. Constantly updated, these videos focus on helping web developers, web designers and mon-techies build and customise their sites. You also have access to community forums and blog chats dedicated to Umbraco web development and web design.
Umbraco is also fully integrated with all social media platforms, such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. At WCP Digital we love social networking, so if you need help in this area, just ask about our social media management services.
