Umbraco vs. Wordpress
Is Umbraco similar to WordPress? Both are powerful CMS platforms, but they cater to different needs. While WordPress began as a blogging platform and expanded its functionalities over time, Umbraco offers a more bespoke and tailored experience, especially for complex websites.
Wordpress relies heavily on community plugins to do much of the heavy lifting which can sometimes result in dashboard 'bloat' as seen below. With Umbraco we're able to create a much more streamlined editor experience
