    What can you do with codeigniter that you cant with wordpress?

    Sorry if this is the wrong place to add this post.

    But I've search everywhere I specific example why I should learn codeigniter when I already know php and Wordpress.

    Is there anything that I can add on website using codeigniter that I cannot implement using Wordpress example If I am asked to build exact same site one using wordpress and the other codeigniter what can I do with codeigniter that I wouldnt be able to with Wordpress Backend and Front end??

    I don't think either limits what you can do. After all, both CI and WP are themselves just PHP code. A better question is: Which one makes your job easier? And the answer to that depends on what kind of site you're trying to build. WP is a CMS and probably better suited for static sites where the owner wants a WYSIWYG interface. Whereas CI is a framework and probably better suited for applications with custom requirements.

    On the CodeIgniter homepage, look at the bottom right, under the heading "Built on CodeIgniter."
