I use somewhat of a custom mvc framework at the office at the moment,
however at home I dont have such a structure, I pretty much do whatever gets the job done.

Am now considering moving onto an mvc framework for projects after hours.
Will be a lot of work rewriting some things, however I think the time that it takes to convert
will aid in any future alterations with lower development times.

CodeIgniter seems to be a fairly straight forward solution.

Anybody got any insights or suggestions?

I like code igniter.

There are like a bajillion of them though. I've heard good things about CakePHP and Rails for PHP.

Yeah i looked through a few tutorials and the structure of codeigniter seems to be very intuitive.

Ive heard good things about cakephp too,
I guess Im going to have to think this out a little more before making a decision.

I am leaning toward both of these so far though, simply due to the user base.

Personally I swear by Zend Framework, but I think it really depends on how you like to code e.g. many people would consider ZF bloated, but I appreciate and like the flexibility it offers. CakePHP is often considered to encourage poor coding practices, but again I think it depends what you value, and how disciplined you are with your own code.

There are zealots for each of the main frameworks, I guess its just a case of trying them out.

I like ci too although haven't used it too much.

Pretty lightweight and 'loosely coupled', intuitive too.

Oh yeah, support forums are really good too.

If you're not sure, go with codeigniter. The reason that this is the only MVC framework I would recommend to someone who isn't sure is because if you're not sure, it means you don't know precisely what you're looking for in an MVC framework. With that in mind, CodeIgniter is virtually zero-config, runs on most shared hosting, and is very easy and intuitive to use and install. It's a great way to get your feet wet. I've compiled or installed the Zend framework enough times to be able to say that you probably don't want to do it, unless you're looking to do enterprise-level collaborative development with a team of developers building sites that gets hundreds of thousands of uniques a day.

Except that EE costs cash.

Well thats if you don't want to re-invent the wheel.

Ive had a chat with a few other developers here and one in particular that used to use CI all the time,
he reckons go for it. Says he would still use it as a preference over many others.

Soo..... CI it is.

I will have a play over the weekend with it.

Well worth the price IMO if you need a CMS/blog/forum/a few other things.
