    I used to use CodeIgniter almost exclusively till 2 years back, for developing small websites having mainly static text content and maybe a couple of forms. Nothing complex. But I switched to Symfony about 1 year into developing a slightly complex website, complete with user authentication & authorization, user profiles & management, an admin backend, …

    Symfony does have a high learning curve, as opposed to CodeIgniter (which I was able to pick up in less than a weeks time). Not being an expert in PHP, it took me quite a while to get hold of how things are done in symfony; but I think it's well worth it.

    You misspelled symfony in the poll options. ;)

    Nice and minimalistic. It keeps out of your way and lets you code how you want to. It comes with an ORM module by default too, which is nice.

    I am using an custom coded one, don't really like the ones who exist, to much unneeded stuff.

    EDIT: You should add an option to the poll for Other/Custom Framework

    I used to hate Smarty. Still sort of do. No real valid reason, except I've been thrust into working with it so often. WHMCS, SourceBans, my gaming community's CMS, etc.

    I don't even know exactly what a framework *does*.....

    Even though I know basic PHP, the following is taken from the CakePHP website and is definitely one for the plain English campaign....

    Yeah, ok, that's great, and did you see X Factor last night....

    I plan to bring up "convention over configuration paradigms" in conversation at work tomorrow, should go down a storm....:confused:
