This is a bog chapter and very heavy on programming concepts. Even if you're not an avid programmer with lots of experience, the examples in this chapter should start you on your way to creating new content and working with existing content in your Umbraco installation. Here's what you should have learned in this chapter:

  • Creating a macro in the Umbraco backoffice to render your .NET controls.
  • How to tweak the code examples to your needs (you're provided a full-blown Visual Studio solution and a project with code samples that you can download at www.wrox.com).
  • Leveraging the power of .NET in your XSLT macros using XSLT extensions.
  • Working with Umbraco's event model and examples on how you can implement custom hooks to work with your content, media, and more.
