About the Book

Learn how to make the most of TYPO3 – the enterprise CMS – to organize information and digital assets, and communicate globally with powerful multi-site and multilingual support. This book will show you how the TYPO3 CMS backend and frontend work from top to bottom.

Content management is a core aspect of every company’s communications, whether intranets and internal digital asset repositories or public-facing product pages and online communities. The book starts with four chapters covering how TYPO3 works, giving you a high-level overview of the most important aspects you should know about, including its community and professional ecosystem. If you’ve never seen TYPO3 before, you’ll learn how to make the most of it and what makes TYPO3 different from other content management systems you may have used before.

You'll then move on to 10 hands-on guides. These step-by-step tutorials show you how to work with TYPO3 CMS. Each guide is self-contained, introducing a scenario, and showing you how to solve a given problem. The guides include references to documentation, examples, code samples, and everything you need to get the job done.
