Typo3, a content management system (CMS), is feature rich and yet is one of the easiest systems to learn. With new functions being created by more than 300 registered developers on a frequent basis, Typo3 gives you over eight hundred available extensions with new ones being constantly developed. When choosing a CMS, all to often you're forced to choose between functionality and ease of use but Typo3 gives you both.

Administrators will like the wizard that allows them to create a site with one of several HTML templates. Typo3 uses Typoscript, a scripting that offers many tools to access data easily and quickly. It also has a tool to make your own extensions called Extension Kickstarter. While it may take awhile to learn all the aspects and uses of Typo3, making a basic site is simple and there are many tutorials available to help. This CMS allows restricting and limiting usage to certain users and groups very easy and is rich in security features.

Content editors can learn to use Typo3 in as little as 30 minutes! It can run on Windows, Linux or Mac and is compatible with most browsers. Text editing is done using familiar Office icons; Typo3 features a rich text editor and WYSIWYG editors as well as the ability to add or remove buttons and styles. There is a spell checker built in and help icons beside most of the functions. Typo3 also displays file management functions in a directory-tree format so that content editors can locate pages and files easily and quickly. The intuitive user interface saves time and aggravation as well.

Typo3 rivals most commercial systems in quality and ease of use. With so many CMSs available, it can be difficult to choose among them but Typo3 will quickly convince you that you've made the right choice.
