Harnessing Umbraco v7.2 for Britax’s European websites

The Session

Crumpled Dog recently spent 6 months developing Britax’s European websites and would like to share their experience & approach in developing a large multilingual website using Umbraco v7.2.  Britax manufacture childcare products such as car seats, pushchairs & bicycle seats.


Topics include:

  • How and why we created early prototypes for considering Umbraco content UX using Umbraco Core tools, Archetype, nuPickers & other packages
  • A look at the 40 custom Angular JS property editors we created as well as a few Umbraco hacks we needed in order to provide the Britax content editor team with a streamlined UX for managing complex content
  • How we have approached mixing 1-1 multilingual content with language specific websites, including friendly URL’s & Multi-language search indexes using Examine
  • Super flexible Grid layouts using 20 custom grid editors for generic content pages
  • Integrating custom data sources and management into the Umbraco UX through the utilisation of custom applications and trees
