Umbraco 7.7 Beta - Beautiful User Management is now a thing!
Here’s a video that goes through it all:
But there’s even more
In addition to greater user management and lots of bug fixes, we’ve also managed to add a couple of other great features, details will come in future blog posts:
- Content Templates (previously called Blueprints). Think of it as default content, where an editor can now select pre-defined content as a part of creating new Content Nodes. Super easy to use and support for all property editors - including 3rd party ones.
- ISearchableTree. Much less technical than it sounds, it now enables search throughout sections from the main search bar. This means that your search - given you have the right permissions - now searches for content, media, types, etc all at once, making it super fast to navigate even large sites.
- New Starter Kit. While it’s been demoed several times over the last year, the successor to Fanoe is finally here, showing you a best practice implementation to quickly get new Umbraco people up to speed as well as being a great baseline for demos of Umbraco.
- Nested Content. The most popular package is now finally in the core - big thank you to the Umco people for their contribution.
Case story: Sport England
Sport England is working towards getting more people active across England – regardless of age, background or ability. Building an active nation is a great purpose, one that should be backed by a solid website. Which is what our Gold Partner Sigma achieved by upgrading Sport England’s website from Umbraco 4 to Umbraco 7. Have a peek at this adventure (and expect some sport puns).
