A while back I discussed the desire to have a document that
helped me to evaluate a web content management system from a
developer perspective. A few other people expressed interest in the
idea so I've published a very rough first draft here in case anyone
wishes to collaborate or provide any feedback.The document is intended to be a verbose specification of a
simple website to build in the CMS the functionality of which is
extremely common to most websites. The exercise itself should take
no more than a day and leave a developer with a good feel of how to
perform basic tasks such as create content types and templates. The
simplicity of the exercise is such that I'd expect any reasonable
developer to be able to sit in front
This post is highly subjective.
My web CMS architecture separates into 3 circles, Content Management Deployment and Runtime.
The three should be able to operate entirely independently of one another though in an ideal world the Runtime and Content Management may co-exist, for preview of content in the CMS authoring environment.
Take the first circle – content management. It should perform the following roles.
Authentication and Authorisation (Login to the CMS... – the file is placed in a folder that corresponds to the path within the content hierarchy.
This puts us in a state where we can synchronise this output folder to another file system – but remember that is the job of our deployment circle.
I’ve been working with Interwoven TeamSite for several years now. For those of you who aren't familiar with TeamSite it is a commercial “Enterprise” content management system (Note: the inverted commas – I don’t like the term enterprise as it is so often misused).In the last few years I’ve also started working with Umbraco. More often than not, Umbraco is my product of choice when building a content-centric website. In most cases TeamSite is overkill requiring significant hardware to host the content repository not to mention an outlay of tens/hundreds of thousands of pounds in license fees depending on the components of the Interwoven product suite that are required. I’m not saying that there is no case where TeamSite is the solution

Here are some presentations I have given:
2013: Umbraco and the three flavours of Azure
2011: Building Commercial Packages and The Deli
2010: Multi Language websites in Umbraco
I'm into speaking at the moment, I'm happy to come and talk at your event.
I am a content management enthusiast with more than 15 years of industry experience.
I run an Umbraco gold partner called Moriyama in which my role is involves all things content management and web related.
I run the Umbraco Level 2 certfication in the UK and travel worldwide to teach the course. I'm actively involved in developing and maintaining the course materials.
I contibute to the Umbraco project in many ways and have
I've been digesting some of the information on day two of
codegarden and in particular this
post that contains a list of 'most wanted' packages.
I'm unsure who requested RSS feed aggregation but before anyone
were to dive in and start coding it may be worth having a look at
As yahoo say:
Pipes is a powerful composition tool to aggregate,
manipulate, and mashup content from around the web.
I've been using pipes for some time to consolidate all of the
RSS output to your Umbraco web server, possibly using some kind of
Macro, but I'd recommend using a scheduled task and simply writing
the feed to the file system as pipes with multiple feeds may impair
your page load time - if for example one
It seems like an age ago now, but in 2013 I wrote about mapping Umbraco content to POCO and presented on the state of Umbraco and Azure as I saw it at the time.
I also wrote an article called My three circles of Web CMS Nirvana (I was into diagrams... cache and associated Examine indexes - and in scalable applications launching new instances fast is important.
Sometimes for really fast scalable apps that combine editorial structured content and user generated content Umbraco isn't the right architecture.
On the last point, joining Umbraco content and user generated content is difficult and slow if there is lots of user generated content.
I'm fresh back from Umbraco codegarden which is always inspiring and I'm pleased to see that lots
recently asked people to contribute to a debate on the future of content
management. While this is an interesting debate I'm going to
attack it from a slightly different angle. I'm looking at it from
the point of view... of my content, now I have to manually
enter keywords too.I'm performng an operation that takes some time, the status
screen is of the "white" and "blank" variety.I've had it with your browser GUI. I want to use Livewriter but
no API exists for me... of my new page is

this is half a day of development.My site relies heavily on user generated content. I need to set
up a cron job
At the end of part 1, I had all of my Umbraco content serialised to disc ready to push to a webapp that didn't have any Umbraco dependencies. But this whole system would be a little useless if I couldn't view my pages from within Umbraco before pushing... RenderMvcController so when we detach from Umbraco we need to remove that dependency and just use a regular MVC controller.
RuntimeController looks like this:
var homeUrl = url.Scheme + "://" + url.Host + ":" + url.Port + "/";
var content = RuntimeContext.Instance.ContentService.GetContent(homeUrl);
if (content == null)
updating and expanding upon a little.
We do web - applications and content. We are very good at
Interwoven (Autonomy) content management products and Umbraco. If
these technologies won't contain your application we'll work with
to to increase
revenue through your website using Autonomy products. A large
proportion of the audience wanted something different, in an
interactive vote at the end of the day 38% of the audience voted
that they'd like to see "more technical content" at the next
gearup, twice the percentage of any other option.Throughout the day I felt that the confidence of some of the
presenters bordered on arrogance we were told that "Interwoven
invented web content management" and there were constant... reserve judgement but we
were consistently told throughout the day what the future of
content was and how certain practices were dated. On this subject I
feel compelled to make a point.A little rant:It is extremely hard to sit and be schooled
