The biggest advantage of using a CMS (content management system) for your website is the ability to control your content separately from the layout or design. With a powerful CMS like TYPO3 CMS you can add, change and remove text, images and plug-ins on your site without installing any proprietary software or paying a third-party. Because of the simple administration and editing tools in TYPO3 CMS, you can run and edit any kind of site, personal or business, without learning HTML, CSS, programming, or web design. There are other CMS solutions out there, of course, but TYPO3 CMS has some unique features that make it a great option for websites of any size, from small to enterprise:
Being among the best has never been exceptionally easy, but when it comes to usability and such, the community is taking issues seriously.
HTML5 + Mobile Ready
Since version 4.7 TYPO3 supports the future standard for modern Web development - HTML5. Content can be published in future proof by editors or the website operator. TYPO3 is both a content supplier for native mobile apps, as well as for so-called Responsive Sites which are designed to scale gracefully on a variety of devices.
With a TYPO3 installation, you can organize and manage any number of websites or applications from a single administration backend. It allows you to either separate or share all kinds of content and access rights across multiple sites. TYPO3 is an ideal tool for distributor websites, product sites, separate microsites or cross-intranet applications.
Workflow, Versioning, Workspaces
With the use of workflows, internal approval processes can can be integrated with content managament, allowing editors to review the work of others before releasing it to the live site. Versioning functionality saves every change to your TYPO3 content and provides a seamless history and the possibility of returning to previous versions with the push of a button. With the use of Workspaces even large structural changes, such as Navigation or complex layout changes, are made on the fly providing TYPO3 with the power of integrated deployment.
Extensive functions for editors
TYPO3 supports you or your editors in the creation of content through genuine "What-You-See-Is-What-You-Get" and frontend editing, as well as integrated image processing with automation capabilities. Other functions such as "Copy & Paste", automatic thumbnail generation, or a wide range of content and media elements are available when working with TYPO3.
High scalability with API-based framework
Whatever the size of your company or your need for content management, TYPO3 can be flexibly expanded and configured according to your needs. With the API-based framework your own TYPO3 applications can be developed based on best practices against a unit-tested, well documented core.
Unlimited expandability with its “App Store”
With more than 6,000 freely available extensions, TYPO3 provides almost unlimited possibilities for expanding your TYPO3 website or application. The built-in Extension Manager helps you to install the extensions you want, which are available for free in the “app store”, otherwise known as the TYPO3 Extension Repository (TER).
