  • Umbraco 8 brought a huge overhaul its backoffice UI. For Callum, the experience is a "buttery smooth" update from v7. But with the changes came some situations of "moved cheese", where finding the new v8 versions of v7 functionality can trip folks up. Callum shares some common trip-ups he and others have found, providing a useful guide for locating needed features that have moved.

  • The Umbraco CMS and community pride themselves on their friendliness. For Jan, part of being friendly means making the Umbraco backoffice as accessible as possible, both in modifying the patterns in our own projects as well as helping out in updating the backoffice itself with best practices.
