Reviews for this release

PLEASE UPDATE THIS SITE TO HOST VERSION 3.0 - it's altogether better and would have saved me loads of time trying to fuss around with version problems. Best combo is CWS version 3.0 with Umbraco version 4.7.2 don't get the latest umbraco - you'll regret it and nothing with cws will work.

Shame the stars only go up to 5, deserves a 10 at least! Fantastic starting point for anyone wanting to get into umbraco, or build a quick website. Framework does more than most people would have on a basic site and rather complex sites. Awesome job

It is a great starter kit, but actually a number of elements are useful as a foundation for many websites. It is not necessarily just for beginners or people getting started. It is easily adjustable using css, so you are not limited to the default template. Excellent work Warren.

The best way to get started with Umbraco!

One of the great option for a newbie in Umbraco to start with.

The CWS2 project is an excellent way to introduce yourself to Umbraco. The macros and XSLT files have been usefully commented so that they are easy to understand. With a small amount of work on the templates and CSS files you can really customise your own website. Using CWS2 and Umbraco there are no limits to the features you can incorporate into your website. Fantastic work Warren !!

This is excellent to get started with learning Umbraco. The default layout might not fit everyone, but for someone with some html+css skills it can easily be adjusted. If you like to have full control on what is going on, I'd suggest you install this on a seperate subdomain and move things you want to keep and you like to your solution Good luck!
