If you are still hesitating whether to convert your Joomla website to TYPO3 or not, initially, you should determine the priorities and perspectives of your future content management framework. TYPO3 is distinguished as the advanced and scalable website building tool. TYPO3 allows you to create enterprise websites with a huge amount of users. It counts the user-friendly editor tool, modern design templates, and what is more important, the ability to customize your extensions. Also, you may provide your website with the shopping cart, mobile app extensions, and a multimedia gallery. Looks like an excellent alternative.
And now, let’s start with the migration process itself. You’re probably wondering whether it is possible to make it more straightforward and flawless or the most appropriate solution is only to move website with the help of a third-party extension or manually? We have prepared the tutorial for the automated Joomla to TYPO3 migration that will save tons of your time – and sanity.
