Product intro

PyroCMS 3 is a major rewrite of the PHP Content Management system. It is built on the Laravel Framework, which in turn uses many Symfony components at it's core.

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
  • Built on a common framework
  • Clean code and modern architecture
  • Superb administration interface
  • Very popular
  • Good usability
  • Vibrant community
Main disvantages
  • Limited adoption a possible liability
  • Tight coupling to Laravel Framework limits options
  • Multisite and some other commonly needed features missing
  • Shoddy code quality
  • Relies on 3rd party plugins a lot
  • A weak security trackrecord, partly due to plugins
