Fork CMS WordPress
Logo
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.

WordPress is not a very modern PHP CMS and does not use Symfony or other components. It is very popular and earns it's position in the listing of Symfony CMSes.

Main advantages
  • A fresh start, no legacy baggage
  • A clean user interface
  • Fully featured for marketing sites
  • Very popular
  • Good usability
  • Vibrant community
Main disvantages
  • Not a 100% standard Symfony Framework app
  • Limited adoption
  • Public REST APIs not a priority
  • Shoddy code quality
  • Relies on 3rd party plugins a lot
  • A weak security trackrecord, partly due to plugins
