    How to start with Umbraco

    Completely new with Umbraco and wondering if someone could give some advice.

    The below would ideally apply to multi language site.

    1. I need to build an Umbraco site which would require a application/section. By this I mean when I log into the administration area I can build my own restricted pages to carry out some database operations.

    2. For the public end of the site I would like to use Identity to allow users to create an account and log in but also utilise the login facility provided by other social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter etc so that users have the option to log in by creating an account with the site or their own social media account.

    I would be utilizing Entity Framework 6, Autofac but I can't find any examples of how to build the backend pages or anything on how I should get started with the above 2 objectives.

    Could anyone provide me with examples please? Or any tutorial/book for Umbraco 8 steps?

    Thanks in advance

    I think some Umbraco semantics will help you find what you're looking for.

    1. You're looking to build a custom backoffice section or dashboard: Docs:


    1. In Umbraco land, what you're looking for is membership, not users. Users refers to the backoffice, members to the public.

    These are a bit dated, but should at least get you started:

    Also, that site has tons of info and a web of links to other good resources:

    One thing I noticed was Umbraco is using AngularJS.... Isn't that old whereas Angular is the current version?

    If so any reason why the old version is used? Could I use the more updated version of Angular?

    Thank you

    You can use whatever JS framework you wish on the frontend of an Umbraco site however when customising the backoffice you need to stick with AngularJS
