Key facts about TYPO3 CMS

Selecting a CMS platform

When comparing content management platforms against your feature list, most CMS platforms should fair well, however this is only half the story, as the devil is really in the detail, here we really need to focus on how well the features/functions are implemented. This is where TYPO3 really stands out from its contemporaries.

While most CMS platforms offer basic staging capabilities allowing you to work on a draft version of a page, enterprise customers require a much more powerful workflow.

TYPO3‘s workspaces provides a mature and robust set of staging & workflow capabilities. Editors can work on multiple draft versions of the website, providing draft links to team members who can preview the content, enabling content to be published through different workspaces into the live website.

Version control and history 

Version control is an essential aspect of any enterprise class CMS allowing you to roll back to earlier versions of content, tracking who made changes and updates.

Typo3 tracks every single element within the site (not just pages as in many CMS solutions), ensuring you have a full historic audit of pages, media and content on a user by user basis.

TYPO3 compared to other solutions

As a full service digital web agency we need to make sure we use the best CMS platforms for our clients projects.

As a specialist TYPO3 agency we can not just carry on blindly using the same CMS platform, and we regularly re-evaluate our choices of CMSs considering whether the likes of Drupal, Site Core, ModX, WordPress, Joomla etc are more suitable for our clients projects.

We continue to believe that TYPO3 CMS is the best general purpose CMS platform for clients who need a fully featured CMS, out performing the other open source alternatives which struggle to offer the true enterprise capabilities expected in the larger or more complex projects. 

TYPO3 also out classes most of the commercial options in terms of functionality, whilst adding the benefits of an active developer community and the low cost of ownership of an open source platform.
