Umbraco 8 is the latest version of the popular Umbraco CMS platform. As an Umbraco Gold Partner, we are excited to be working with Umbraco 8 on the design and development of new websites. Please see below for three new features on Umbraco 8.
Designed to enhance your content-editing experience, Content Apps are one of the best new features on Umbraco 8.
Some apps are designed to give you an insight into your page’s performance. For example, there is an app that presents key Google Analytics data for the page, whilst another displays SEO audit scores, meaning there is no need to jump to another platform. Other apps are tools that act as an extension to the native editing features, for example, there is an image editing app that allows you to enhance the brightness or contrast of an image. Here at CSI, we can recommend, implement and configure apps for you.
For those familiar with Umbraco, you’ll know that it is a super user-friendly CMS. With Umbraco 8, managing your content is now even simpler. The UI has been re-designed, meaning that content editors can edit pieces of content and media in one place, without having to navigate to a different area of the admin.
For example, if you want to edit an image on a specific page, you can now do that from the page itself without having to navigate to the Media library, making content management smoother and more efficient.
Umbraco 8 introduces a new native feature called language variants. This is an excellent tool that is invaluable if you operate across regions with different languages. Your content editors will be able to create variations of the same page in different languages, and easily switch between these variations when editing.
For example, you could have the English and German version side-by-side, helping to make sure that content is consistent.
CSI Media will continue to provide ongoing support for previous versions of Umbraco. We can carry out development updates, maintenance and Umbraco health checks.
