Product intro

Fork CMS is a new take on PHP CMSes. Built on a contemporary base that is a customised version of the Symfony2 framework, this is a challenger to keep note of.

Joomla! is one of the big three PHP CMSes. Currently it uses only a single component from the Symfony project. Joomla remains a strong contender with a large number of users and extensions.

Main advantages
  • A fresh start, no legacy baggage
  • A clean user interface
  • Fully featured for marketing sites
  • Large developer and user base
  • Plenty of ready made extensions available
  • Tried and tested basic concepts

 

Main disvantages
  • Not a 100% standard Symfony Framework app
  • Limited adoption
  • Public REST APIs not a priority
  • Administration can be confusing
  • Lack of focus, tries to do everything
  • Codebase is a mix of old and new
