    So what framework should I use?

    For the past year or so all of my projects did not require the use of a framework, (shopping carts, maintenance, etc), but now I have a client who needs a solution with a user registration/login system and a backend control panel. I am actually very exited about this project since I get to do every from scratch! My code, my structure, my way! So my question is...

    what framework should I use?

    I have some doubts about polls in general because i believe you dont get any relevant results. It's like statistics through which you can prove anything and nothing.

    I am wondering the same thing is there a way to see the pro's and cons of each framework.. I am particulary interested in the differences between Zend / CakePHP as they seem to be the largest frameworks there are. Documentation / Tutorials / Community is very important to me.

    From what I have seen, I too would recommend Symfony.

    I've been wondering the same thing.

    I was interested in Seagull and considered Drupal, but then I started thinking Cake would be the way to go... and now I'm leaning towards CodeIgniter. And I haven't really closely looked at Symfony.

    It seems to boil down to what need and what you're comfortable with. I'm attracted to CodeIgniter for it's apparent simplicity, but just about any of these frameworks can take care of the project requirements you listed.

    I still haven't chosen a framework, but for me it needs to be simple to implement, speedy and well documented.

    I chose CodeIgniter because it is very well-documented and has a good support forum. It is also does not take too long to learn as long as you're already familiar with MVC concepts.
