Product intro

Symphony CMS is a content management system that is built using PHP language. Despite the similarity in naming it has nothing to do with the Symfony project also written in PHP.

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

  • Easy user interface
  • Extensible by default

  • Heavy investment in project specific technology
  • Limited popularity
  • Administration can be confusing
  • Lack of focus, tries to do everything
  • Codebase is a mix of old and new
