Umbraco Content Editors User Guide

The Umbraco content editors guide is a comprehensive yet easy to read instructions for editors and marketers performing everyday tasks within Umbraco. This guide isn’t written to look at every single function available within Umbraco. My aim is to create a simple Umbraco manual that will help you to get an overall understanding of how you use the various features within the CMS. The tutorials in this area assume no prior knowledge of Umbraco and provide a brief introduction and explanation of the overall interface. The guide covers the most common tasks an editor would likely face providing clear instructions and helpful guidance.


These tutorials, include your first introduction to using Umbraco.  These tuorials will cover things such as, what is Umbraco?, how To Access The Umbraco Login Page, Umbraco Interface Explained, how To Log Out Of The Umbraco Backend.


Your website is a collection of web pages which are grouped together hierarchy and usually connected together in various ways. Creating and managing pages is how you will use Umbraco the most. This section will cover all the basic you need in order to build your website the way you want.


How you will add content into Umbraco will vary slightly based on how the developers have structured your templates. As Umbraco provides a very flexible platform every person reading this will have a slightly different set-up as your page templates and blocks will be unique to your business. There are a number of principles, however, that will be relevant to everyone reading this.


When we work with Umbraco we have two types of people who interact with the website.  You have the people who run the website and you have the people that use the website.  When you work with some CMS systems, the terms "user" and "member" are used interchangeably, however, in Umbraco the two are very different things. A member, is a customer/someone who uses your website.  A user is a content editor/website owner, if you are reading this then you are probably a user.  How we manager users and members is slightly different and this section contains some guides to help you manage the basic tasks.
