Been meaning to ask this too.

The main problem with Codeigniter for me is the fact it uses ActiveRecord over PDO for database access. I prefer PDO my self due to how it works (prepared statements FTW!).

The PDO driver has been available since 2.1 I believe. However I couldn't find any documentation for it so I'm not using it, but I would very much love to. Toungue

I say the team should throw a curve ball and use web2py :-P. Then we won't have to argue over which php framework to use.

Often it's a question of timing. When I chose my PHP Framework (Yii), CodeIgniter was a PHP4 framework, it had an older design and it was slower. I don't know how CodeIgniter 2 improved over its previous version. At that time, Yii was probably the most efficient framework out there (autoload, yiilite.php single file framework etc.). Now, I think that competitors have improved too. Yii was always marketed as an "high-performance PHP framework" and I can say that the Yii community is quite touchy about performances and the design changes (like the design changes of the 2.0 version) are also evaluated on the basis of performances considerations (just look at topics like this http://www.yiiframework.com/forum/index....em-or-not/ ).

There is some pretty good discussions in r/php on reddit about frameworks, here: http://www.reddit.com/r/PHP/search?q=fra...rict_sr=on (Look through the most recent posts)

I use CI daily, I love the framework. But I've also heard it's not fit enough for large software, such as MyBB. But that's what I heard though.

IMHO codeigniter is made to be easy to use for beginners and kind of gets marketed as such.

Now I have just start to use Yii, and i love it. It does use a form of active record. You create a instance of a form model, add properties and use the save() method.

Also Yii uses lazy loading so things are called on as as-need basis. i also can say the Gii tool is VERY helpful. CodeIgniter is a good framework but I feel Yii is what should be used Smile.
