A web poll is a useful way of gathering opinions from your site users. It is also one of the most trivial pieces of web functionality that you could write.A friend who is a java developer and has never really used .net or Umbraco wanted to see a real world example, so I put this together for him real quick (he was impressed).http://darren-fergusoncom.site.securepod.com/development/polldemo.aspxI’ll look at releasing a package at some point. It is implemented as a Macro that takes a question and a delimited set of answers as parameters.
My new site http://autoumbraco.darren-ferguson.com/ allows you to install an instance of Umbraco by filling out a web form which will take you less than 10 seconds. You can choose from version 3 and 4 and also specify whether you want any packages pre-installed – such as Warren Buckley’s excellent Creative website wizard.Why is this useful? Scenario 1: you want to demonstrate Umbraco to a client/colleague who has never used it before. You are out of the office and don’t have IIS running on your laptop.Scenario 2: You want to check out a new Umbraco package or test one that you are developing but you don’t want to install it into any of your development/production environments before you’ve tested the functionality.Scenario 3: You want
Umbraco backup 1.1 is available for download. Although labelled beta, this release will only be updated if user bugs are
reported in the next few weeks.
Before I give details on the product, a brief statement on the future of Umbraco Backup.
Recently I have undertaken a contract
that is challenging to the extent that I don't have the drive for development in my spare time. Additionally my health has not
been so good of late. As a result the only development on Umbraco backup.... Verify Path. Allows you to check that the web server user has the required permissions to backup under the specified path.

set up. This is really simple as I have the Microsoft
So I need to learn how to use Umbraco
5 - because in a couple of months of time I'll be teaching it
to others. I've played with version 5 during development and
contributed a few bits of information back to the community but now
is the time... to move forward with what I have and address it as the
first issue post go live.

I'll aim to write each step of this development up as I work on
it. I'll do my best to use screencasts and screen grabs where
Disclaimer: I see this as a nice little hack, and something that I’ll use for development and fast prototyping. I’m not recommending it for production use and I know and appreciate that the guys behind Umbraco would probably discourage this in terms of 'best practices'. There is nothing here you couldn't do with C#.
Anyway, having said that, I think Perl is a great and very current technology. I use it day in day out as part of my work with Interwoven TeamSite and it still powers some of the biggest sites on the web including the BBC and parts of Amazon. Web frameworks like Catalyst are excellent and I’m quite prepared to argue my corner with anyone who thinks that Perl is old ‘skool’ and dated.

I'm back from Umbraco codegarden 2009 in Copenhagen with the
obligatory sunburn. I'm a lot lighter in the wallet but enriched
and nourished in terms of ideas and inspiration for web CMS.As the title says, this is a brief summary. I just sat down... .net interfaces.Some may argue that by promoting commercial packages I'm not
really entering the spirit of the whole Umbraco and open source
movement but my answer is simple. If I had an employer subsidising
my Umbraco development then everything... on

the core team that I needed in order to try and present Umbraco as

The old Ferguson Moriyama site used web site forms and Umbraco
to handle a lot of our back office processes - in the next post in
this series I'll be trying to put some forms onto my web pages...
appropriate folders under the Umbraco web root. A little digging
around suggests that the place to put CSS files is in
~/Content/Styles so I drop my CSS files... realise that by modifying the
default Layout I've trashed the out of the box example layout, but
luckily I can now just go and install a clean copy of Version 5

There was a very good web chat yesterday about the Umbraco 3.0 package repository.
Details are here. http://www.umbraco.org/10722.aspx
The Umbraco Backup manual is available to download.
There will be an update added shortly on how to restore from an XML mode backup. Finally, I will look at adding scheduling which will wrap up development of 1.0.
