Every Umbraco website is unique. The flexible nature of the software allows tons of leeway in terms of how any given use-case is implemented. This is a wonderful advantage of the system for developers; however, it can also allow the creation of sites which don’t have the best architecture for your needs going forward.
In many years of working with Umbraco, I have had the opportunity to look closely at numerous sites. Most sites created by reputable development agencies are in reasonably good shape, but some I have seen have made it immediately obvious that the developers who created it had never used Umbraco before.
If the site is working as expected, this might not really matter to you, but if you are struggling with a difficult-to-use back-office, overly complicated content update procedures, poor performance, or strange bugs – the underlying structure might be the cause.
If you plan to add some new features to your site, or change the way some pages are working, the first step is to understand how the system is structured right now, in order to determine the best way to make those changes.
The simple solution is an Umbraco Website Audit.
An audit will give you invaluable information about how your site is constructed and can answer questions like:
I offer two versions of the Audit service:
If you have a simple setup without any external custom code, or if you only have access to the back-office of Umbraco (via an Umbraco login), this is the Audit for you.
The Audit Report will include:
If you have access to the site’s full source-code, it can be reviewed for basic best-practices as well.
This Audit would include:
Both Audits include a written report as well as a phone consultation to review the results.
