Umbraco demo site features

Umbraco 7 is really easy to use with the new grid system, and we have done a great deal of work to make the rest of the content editor's experience as good. As a matter of simplicity, we have decided to split the functionality into three groups.

Umbraco Core

If you are new to Umbraco, this is where you learn how to add new pages, reorder pages, how the grid system works etc. This is not to say that advanced users will not use this section. There are some advanced features of Umbraco that are not immediately visible to a normal user, but can be accessed with one or two clicks. This allows the new user to dive in without being intimidated by the sheer number of controls, while the advanced user still has fine control.

Manao Configuration

On every page there are settings that are not directly related to the content, and the site itself has a lot of settings that do not belong on a specific page. In this section you will learn how to use all of these configurations. Some of them we install by default when wee do a project, and some of them are optional extras.

Modules

After the content editor has used 5 minutes to learn how to create a page, this is where she should look. Modules are the content that goes in the grid on the page. The most obvious module is a Rich Text Editor (RTE), but we can add any number of modules, as agreed in a project.

On this demo site, we have included the modules we needed to create the site itself, and a few extra we simply wanted to show. There is also an example of a module that is not in the grid itself.

If you want to learn about the grid system with its configuration of layouts and rows, you should look in the Umbraco Core section.
