Umbraco review

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 create content which can be accessed by everyone. Using F12 and the ability to see how the information is viewed by users on different devices extremely useful, as well as the ability to caption images on the site, to allow users with screen readers to understand the information. In the search facility, it's extremely useful for a membership Organisation like the Scouts to be able to use the SEO hide from searches function. This helps to ensure that the right information reaches the right group of volunteers.

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.

Built our new site using Umbraco and it was easy

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.

Umbraco

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.

Very Good Product

We are using Umbraco to roll our a new digital banking platform. We are still in development, and it has proven to be stable.

Pros

Umbraco is a full featured CMS with many useful features. As knowledge grows with use of the product so too will utilization. The documentation and user forums are quite helpful. When building a site, it's preview function is useful to visualize how your site will look on different devices, quickly.

Cons

As this is a full featured products, the learning curve is a bit steep for beginners.

Easy to use and great results

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!
