Umbraco website and Umbraco backoffice on 3 laptops

Content Management Features

No-code content creation 

Thanks to the flexible, customizable, editor-friendly, and well-structured backoffice in Umbraco, you can create any kind of content from blog posts to campaign landing pages fast, and without any training or coding. With Umbraco, we always strive to make things simpler - especially for editors. Why? Because they’re the ones who’ll have to keep the website alive with relevant and updated content long after the website goes live. That’s why their job needs to be as delightful and friction-free as possible in order for them to focus on what really matters: creating great content for the world/customers/followers.

Create drafts and schedule content 

Go on and take a break. In Umbraco, you decide whether you want to publish your content changes immediately or save them for publishing later. This way, you can always return to your draft and make the finishing touches, get a colleague to spell check, or the likes, before hitting the “Publish” button. Actually, you can even schedule the publishing so it fits whatever launch deadline you might have. Or even schedule unpublishing for when the news/offer is no longer relevant. Your finished content can basically go live or be unpublished without you “being there” to press the button.

Multi-device preview mode 

In Umbraco, you can enjoy a responsive preview mode that fits today’s digital visitors. This means that you can not only preview your webpage or edits before they go live, you can also see how it will look, feel and work on different devices such as mobile, desktop, and tablet. Basically, you get an extended preview functionality that gives you valuable insights into how your visitors will experience your content and thus, a chance for you to make sure everything looks and works as intended on any device in order for your visitors to get the best experience possible.

Versioning, rollback, and audit trail 

Unlike real life, it’s actually possible to go back in time in Umbraco because the content changes are versioned. This means that you can always roll back to an older version of saved content. This comes in handy if you ever make a mistake or need to go back to content that’s been live before.

Audit trail: Who made the latest changes to this page? This is possible to keep track of in the Umbraco backoffice. This especially comes in handy if you’re multiple editors working on the same piece of content and you’d like to keep an overview of who has worked on the content and when.

Customizable workflow 

It’s the content editors that’ll end up using the backoffice - that’s why the structure and the workflows in the backoffice need to fit them. The flexibility of the Umbraco CMS enables you to build an editing experience tailored to your content editors and the tasks they need to solve whether that’s adding new products, blog posts, campaign pages, or the likes. This means that you can provide them with a digital tool that’ll let them publish their great work to the world with a confident smile on their face.

WYSIWYG editor 

In Umbraco, it’s possible to build a fully what-you-see-is-what-you-get (WYSIWYG) editor experience. This means that your editors/clients get a 1:1 feel and view of how the content they’re editing in the backoffice will look on the website when they push the publishing button. This means less need for clicking the preview button, faster editing, and more confidence when going live with updated content. It’s basically as intuitive as it gets - all your editors ever want.

Structured Media Library 

In the Umbraco Media Library, you can add and manage all your media items: images, PDFs, GIFs, videos. Create categories and folders in order to make sure the right image is always easy to find for anyone working with content. The folder structure makes it easy for you to keep things tidy from the very beginning which will make updating content not just fast, but a real delight both now and in the future.

Auto-cropping for images 

Wave goodbye to unfortunate chopped heads or logos. The Umbraco Image Cropper makes sure your images are always displayed as intended on whatever device or format is needed. The Image Cropper is customizable, which means you can add as many needed formats for your page as needed, keeping things looking correct and professional. And when you use the focal point, you can control what part of the image will stay in focus, no matter what device your visitor is using. You can even set up default image sizes in Umbraco so there’s no need to open photoshop before adding an image to your project. Pretty nifty.

Multilingual content editing 

English, Spanish, German, Mandarin… the web is worldwide and that often calls for multilingual content. In Umbraco, your multilingual content can exist side-by-side in the same solution without you losing an overview. With features like side-by-side editing (perfect for translations) as well as a way to easily preview the various languages pages at once to check if everything is updated everywhere, Umbraco is packed with features that make working with multiple languages a true pleasure.
