Content management made simple
Umbraco is a free-to-use Open Source CMS, which powers more than half a million websites online.
Projects come in different shapes and sizes, with different needs and requirements; that's why our CMS is kept neat and open for just that reason. We value that content should be easy, simple and friendly to create and edit. After all, your website is the face of your brand, so it deserves the best.
Take a look at how Umbraco excels with intuitive workflows, social media and SEO, integrations, and previewing content, and our products Umbraco Cloud and Umbraco Uno take it a step even further.
An Editor workflow that works for you
We've worked hard to make an editing experience that fits your natural workflow. Once you’re in the zone and the creative juices are flowing, nothing should be overly complicated or stand in your way.
Integrated workflows in the Backoffice ensure that you and your team won’t get interrupted and can always stay focused on the context and the content you are creating.
Create a page, add text, upload and crop images perfectly for the page and write catchy SEO titles and descriptions - all without leaving the page you are working on.
Trusted by brands that you know
Working on a multilingual website?
Translating pages can be a tough job.
But Language variants make that easier, too. With the side-by-side mode, you can edit two pieces of content at the same time, so the text you are translating is always visible in your screen and you won’t have to keep switching tabs.
Integrate and extend Umbraco to fit your needs
Would Umbraco be the center of your digital workflow or would it be part of a bigger suite of tools?
Either way, you can have it your way.
At Umbraco, we strive to be a best of breed CMS and all that comes with it. But, in a digital world, you often need more than one tool to get the job done. That’s why we won’t limit you in any way, but instead encourage you to integrate and extend Umbraco with any other 3rd party tools, extensions or packages that you need.
So when you go ahead and integrate with your ecommerce, CRM, email system or whatever tool you need and use, Umbraco will work seamlessly along with them.
With a thoroughly documented API, your developers can integrate almost anything and make it work with Umbraco - and we encourage that, too! Our Umbraco community of developers are always creating and sharing a selection of apps, packages and extensions, that you can use right away.
Preview before you ship to the world
Once you’re ready to publish, you never have to be scared of how it will look for your users - no matter the device they use. Does the content in the editor look like expected on the page? Are your images going to align properly on tablets? Will your headlines break down to multiple lines on smartphones? With the powerful preview feature, you’ll always be able to preview your content on multiple devices before publishing, so it looks great across all screens.
The unique Responsive Preview gives you previews of how your content will look on desktop and laptop screens as well as portrait and landscape view on tablets and mobiles.
Be confident when you press “Publish” and know you don’t have to spend time afterwards on fixing how it is presented on the page.
Be seen on Social Media and rank higher on Google
With a CMS that fits your workflow, you'll be able to create more and better content. Once you’ve hit publish, it’s time to get your amazing content shared with the world, and most importantly, seen. Sharing on social media is easy and efficient, with fields to add Social Media OG Tags and Cards.
Umbraco has all the technical features for you to optimize your technical and on-page SEO, so you can get better rankings in the search engines. Fill out title tags and meta descriptions that are the proper length, add noindex and nofollow to your pages, avoid duplicate content with canonical tags, and get your pages indexed with XML sitemaps.
Did you change the URL of a page? No worries! The built-in redirect management will add a 301 redirect automatically and let you manually add more. Once your content is published and shared it's easy for your data team to add all their tracking scripts, so they can do data-driven marketing with the analytics tool they prefer to use.
