A Content Management System (CMS) is a vital tool for creating and managing a website in an effective manner. But having so many CMS options available, it’s easy to get lost while choosing the most suitable one. In this post, I’m going to compare the pros and cons of two absolutely different, yet significant platforms – Typo3 vs WordPress. So, let’s put a glance at their features and find out whether there is a fast and safe migration solution.
Typo3 Means Professionalism
Typo3 is a free and open source CMS platform, which allows creating sites of different sizes, from small ones to enterprise. It is a highly customizable platform so that you can use one theme for the whole website or design each page making your web project unique. Nevertheless, working with this CMS platforms requires deep programming knowledge. If you are an advanced and experienced user then it won’t be a problem for you. But it will be difficult for newbies to run a website on Typo3. One more thing is that the Typo3 extensions demand more server parameters for the fast server running.
🙂 This CMS enables editors to have controlled access to specific areas of the website via granular access control;
🙂 A wide variety of third-party plugins available;
😟 Free themes are limited in number, and you would need professional Typo3 specialists to alter the look and design of your site;
😟 Automatic updates for this CMS are not available.
WordPress Stands for Functionality
WordPress is a great platform to use if you’re new to blogging and websites. It’s free, easy to install and, what’s more, WP works out of the box. If you aren’t familiar with WordPress, it runs off a basic framework where you can add plugins for functionality and themes for aesthetics. While you don’t need to know how to code to use WordPress, it’s like sitting in a self-driving car. Is it cool because it can drive? Sure. But if you can get your hands on the wheel, you can throw it into an insane mode and create something amazing.
🙂 Easy to set up and demand no technical knowledge;
🙂 One can easily expand the features of a website like forms, image sliders, maps, etc. by integrating plugins, which are literally countless;

😟 If you use third-party plugins without proper research, vulnerabilities might arise in your website making it prone to hacking attacks.
