What is a content management system (CMS)?
A CMS is a software system for digital data maintenance and organization for websites.
Starting with the search engine-compliant standard version of TYPO3, users have the possibility to determine design, functions, and contents themselves, even without previous programming knowledge. An advantage in handling is the editor-friendly backend user interface on the part of TYPO3. TYPO3 supports editors in backend maintenance with help texts, assistants, and templates from various templates. The TYPO3 community also offers mutual exchange and support. Only a web server is required for TYPO3 installation. The system is used exclusively via a web browser, no additional software is required. In addition, TYPO3 enables internationalization through multilingualism, expandability through individual extensions and offers easily integrated interface connections to existing company systems for complex websites.
Why TYPO3 Update?
In order to exclude security gaps, regular DSGVO-compliant security updates and bug fixes are carried out by the TYPO3 "Long-Term-Support". With each upgrade, new functions and options are integrated that are relevant for a contemporary website, such as increasing the page loading time, adapting usability, and much more. There is a TYPO3 roadmap for this purpose, which can be used to see when it makes sense to update your older TYPO3 version.
