TYPO3 is probably the best-known and most feature-rich of all Open Source content management systems. Its enormous range of functions and superb flexibility make TYPO3 first choice for medium-sized and large websites.
Open Source content management system TYPO3 is based on PHP and was first announced in 1998. Kaspar Skårhøj from Denmark is the spiritual father of TYPO3. MySQL is used as a database for preference. Apache is a suitable server basis although content management system can also be operated on other platforms. Its enormous fan community is continuing to further develop TYPO3. Using extensions as they are known, TYPO3 can be adapted to suit the relevant requirements. Thousands of these extensions are listed in TYPO3’s extension repository. TYPO3is distributed under the General Public License (GPL).
Both frontend as well as backend can be adapted to the language desired. A rich text editor in the backend allows texts to be conveniently adapted. Another big advantage of TYPO3 is its flexibility in terms of web design and extension integration. While TYPO3’s performance is almost unlimited, a serious amount of expertise is a prerequisite for the development of a website. TYPO3’s functional scope is completed by graphics applications, search-engine-friendly URLs and a sophisticated caching system.
TYPO3 is undoubtedly a good choice for anyone planning a more complex website with little interest in limits on scalability.
