The most versatile and functional CMS out there!

I was unfortunate enough to have to deal with using this system as a CMS. I would not recommend it to anyone who is not both obsessive-compulsive and a PHP genius. Drupal or XOOPS are far superior. Heck Wordpress is almost as good as Drupal...

Typo3 is the best eeCMS and his flexibility is your strong point as well as being very safe and suitable for all reality

For the long run, TYPO3 gives your clients the greatest flexibility. You can make a quick buck and have migraines with low-end CMSs or have a headache and good client relationship with TYPO3.

Typo3 is an enterprise open source cms. Everybody should keep this in mind. It can be easily compared with RedDot, but as RedDot it is no system to maintain your private homepage.

So, Anonymous comment from dec 22nd makes me smile a little bit. There's no php skills needed at all to install or maintain Typo3. And only because you can not setup Typo3, it is no bad cms.

Kids with homepages should choose a simple CMS like Joomla or Wordpress. Pros take a look at Typo3. It's worth it!

Very steep learning curve on the installation and administration side. But hang in there because once you learn how to install and configure this CMS, your customer (users) will be a happy camper.

Abundant extensions give you the flexibility to build a CMS tailored to your needs.

I had a hard time locating a good set of English documentation. First obstacle was to find a good English installation guide. Next obstacle was to find a good English tutorial for templavoila. But that's just my selfish criticism because I only read/write English. Perhaps some day, some nice soul will translate some of the documentation to English. :)

Highly flexible and well maintained, a friendly and motivated community. Quite complex though, rather for a professional audience. Over 5000 extensions - very popular in Europe.
