Umbraco (in our opinion) offers the easiest and cleanest looking management system that is intuitive and easily configured to create not just a great looking site but an extremely well organized and structured site making Umbraco a great choice for organizations who don’t have a lot of time to tweak page layouts and spend time adjusting page layouts, widgets etc; or equally for larger websites (over 100 pages) or websites that are likely to grow extensively over time.
Umbraco is a CMS (Content Management System) that is in constant development by a large community of developers offering a stable and extremely extendable platform, Umbraco (in our opinion) offers the easiest and cleanest management system that is intuitive and easily configured to create not just a great looking site but an extremely well organized and structured site making Umbraco a great choice for organizations who maybe don’t want the hassle of tweaking each page layout or for larger websites (over 100 pages) or websites that are likely to grow extensively over time.
Due to how Umbraco has been developed it lends itself to be developed in a very efficient manor, put simply this means there is very little excessive over head when your customers load your pages meaning your site will be a lot faster than if it had been built in other systems that require Themes (which normally come with a lot of bloat – un-required code that gets loaded each time a page on your site is loaded).
Content is easy to add and edit via the cleanly designed and intuitive management section which uses simple and familiar looking form controls to update content but also offers more complex options to set up things such as pictures and slideshows.
Your media (images and other files) is also in good hands as its folder-based media library allows easy replacement of images throughout your site by simply replacing it in the media library so there is no need to go trawling through your content to find any old images. Not only that Umbraco can also dynamically size images down for smaller devices meaning images that appear large on a PC screen get reduced in size for smaller devices to save band width and speed up your site on Phone and Tablets.
If you are looking to really target content to different countries, users or even for specific times of day or the year Umbraco can offer extensive functionality to dynamically show and hid content based on a variety of content that is displayed on your site.
The search functionality is probably the best search on the open source “market” it can be customized to only check specific types of pages, but it can also be tailored to display different types of content differently.
For those in the know Umbraco can also dynamically manage 301 redirects meaning if you were to change a URL the old URL will automatically redirect to the new URL.
The other great thing about Umbraco is its page cache, this offers much faster page generation speeding up your website to another level.
With such an extendable and flexible system it is possible to produce almost any type of content or functionality on your website below are just some of the features you can expect from an Umbraco website developed by AME WebTech,
Almost all websites will have generic web pages, these are normally used for content describing your services and possibly products but also detail contact details and the usual terms and conditions and website policy pages that we needed for most organizations.
