    Completely new to Umbraco?

    If you've never worked with Umbraco before, there's a few resources which we recommend that you start with in order to get to know your way around the backoffice and learn the essentials for working with content.

    The three platforms for Umbraco Uno

    There are three platforms that you will be going through as you work with your Umbraco project.

    The Portal

    The Portal is the landing space for when you enter your project, here you will have the options to manage your project. This is also where you can get an overview of your environments, make changes to them, and invite users. We will continue to refer to this as the portal throughout the rest of the documentation. The portal is a general thing when working with Umbraco on the cloud, it is used on both regular cloud projects and Heartcore as well as Umbraco Uno.

    Umbraco Backoffice

    The Umbraco Backoffice is where you will be working when editing and creating content. It is divided into sections in the top of the page. In the content section of the backoffice, you will have a content tree on the left side of the screen. This content tree is where your pages will be when you start making content. We will continue to refer to this as the Backoffice throughout the rest of the documentation.

    The Frontend

    The Frontend is what people see when they visit your website, meaning that this is where all the content you create in the backoffice goes. How the frontend looks is completely up to you, and you choose this by creating the look you want in the backoffice. You cannot do any editing on the frontend. We will continue to refer to this as the Frontend throughout the rest of the documentation.


    You can customize your Umbraco Uno project to have exactly the look you want. Customize colors and fonts using the Theme Editor and add custom logos through the Themes settings page.
