tubIT provides all departments of the university with the typo3 service facilitating the work, reduce the costs and time required and help to find information easily. In addition the corporate design is employed to ensure a uniform appearance of TU Berlin. Among the welcome pages of TU Berlin 350 other websites are in TYPO3. The main advantage is that editors do not require any HTML knowledge and can use the web editor developed by tubIT.

Please note that you can not save your PHP scripts directly on the typo3 server due to security reasons. Instead you can use alternative techniques like linking on scripts, executing them in iFrame or embedding the scripts via scriptconnector.

Target Audience
