Hi, completely new to Umbraco. Only heard of it's existence yesterday!!
I'm needing to a build a website to market a software product. Now, I have html and css skills to a good level which leads me to a few questions:
I have been looking at other .net CMS but there is something about this product that looks more compelling than the others.
Appreciate any advice/help.
I suggest if you're really interested to come at a grasp to look at Umbraco TV (needs a subscription but well worth it). There are some demo videos for free too on Umbraco TV.
There are at least 4 demo / start up sites, the most popular being http://our.umbraco.org/projects/starter-kits/creative-website-starter-(cws)
Also "Runway" is a small demo site that you can install when you install umbraco.
To answer your question about your templates, pretty much if you can build it in html/css then you can build it in Umbraco, Umbraco will only ever output the markup that you specify.
There are not really any templates/skins for Umbraco as every website is different, however the next release (Juno) will allow for skins.
Hope that helps
to answer some of your questions:
- you could made a document type with a field that accepts rich text and put your html in there, and have a template pointing to your CSS; but I would strongly advise to first understand the concepts of Umbraco and see why that would not be the way to go ;)
- yes, the 'runway package' is a demo site you can choose to install when installing umbraco and a lot of packages are around (codeplex, our.umbraco.org etc)
- Umbraco doesn't really work with templates (Joomla / Drupal) or skins (Dotnetnuke) - you basically build your layout with CSS and templates (using the ASP.NET master template functions).
Thank you for the speedy responses. Very good for promoting the program having a helpful community like this.
To give you an idea of the packages ready to be installed... just search on umbraco in codeplex or go to http://our.umbraco.org/projects.
