Something For Everyone
Developers and Users
The API-driven extension framework offers unlimited flexibility by letting developers extend the functionality and add new types of content elements using standard programming practices like MVC (model-view-controller) design. Thanks to the large community of developers that use TYPO3, you can already find a solution for almost any need in the Extension Repository.
Authors and Editors
TYPO3 is a user-friendly, intuitive tool for producing and maintaining web pages with just a few clicks of the mouse. Authors benefit from the full-featured rich-text editor that offers all of the formatting options they would need in a WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) tool with a familiar word processor-like interface. Seamless integration of multimedia content and dynamic image manipulation are available to right out of the box in TYPO3. In addition, an internal messaging and workflow system helps content creators and editors collaborate in the administration backend.
Administrators and Content Managers
TYPO3 provides an extremely detailed permissions system for implementing professional editing workflows for both users and groups. Administrators can even manage multiple websites in one TYPO3 installation and share users, extensions, and content between them.
Web Developers and Agencies
Appreciate the complete separation of design from content that TYPO3 offers as a total CMS. The designer-friendly template system lets developers quickly and easily map existing HTML & CSS files to dynamic content without limiting the design options for professional website designers. If the website needs to change dramatically, site redesigns are easily implemented in TYPO3.
The extension framework and database-driven design of TYPO3 means that sites can scale easily and adapt to future needs without a large investment in hardware or costly rebuilds.
As a Framework for Large and Small Sites
TYPO3 provides the best out-of-the-box solution and a stable, high-performance architecture that can accommodate almost any type of custom solution or extension.
As a Standards-based Web Application
TYPO3 can run on most standard hosting services that offer PHP and MySQL (see also: system requirements). TYPO3 users (editors, administrators, etc.) only need a browser to access the backend administration section to do everything they need including upload and maintain files and documents.
As a Community Driven System
TYPO3 is supported by a large community of both users and developers. A community this large around the world means that it’s always possible to find support, and a library of documentation, tutorial videos, and books are available in multiple languages.
Thanks to the community, TYPO3 is a very active project with frequent updates, regular releases, a dedicated security team and a solid roadmap. Under the direction of the TYPO3 Association, core developers in the community keep TYPO3 consistently progressing from version to version.
As an Open Source Software
TYPO3 is published under the GPL, which means that there are no licensing fees or upgrade costs over time. For large companies, that means more money can be spent on training or customization where it will make the most difference. The open source nature of TYPO3 also means that problems or bugs are fixed faster by the community and TYPO3 sites are less vulnerable to known security holes.
