Overall, this is a great package for basic information websites or maybe even a blog. We tried to turn it into more of a web application (serving up both XML feeds and normal web pages), but the underlying structure just couldn't handle the more complex stuff cleanly or easily. I'd happily use it for my personal website though.

Umbraco has been a great help in our more complex projects. Being completely open we've been able to integrate 3rd data, and build our own applications on top of it.

So my belief is that umbraco is easy to extend and work with, so Risingfish's problems must be caused by his lack of understanding the application.

Only really works in IE. No plans to port to mono, indeed developers quite hostile to the idea.

If you are stuck with then you could do worse.

We replaced our homegrown system with Umbraco in less then 7 hours.
Templating is very nice and it was easy to work with and build on. The only
knock I have is that it is somewhat less snappy then systems like Site Core.
