Hi

I was wondering if we can have a separate sub-forum under PHP where we can post questions related to CakePHP only.

This will help us to search / help queries related to CakePHP only.


Thoughts?



Thanks

Ahh, but the difference here is that cakePHP is a framework, not a CMS. With cakePHP you can build a CMS, eStore, Blog, etc.

We already have a couple framework forums for ASP (ASP.net) and Ruby on Rails and their not even a sub forums, but a main categories.

That said, there are several PHP frameworks out there, and I would certainly advocate adding a "PHP Frameworks" subforum to cover cakePHP, Symphony, Zend and other popular frameworks (much like we already do for jQuery, etc in Javascript).

Mm, I would still argue that the attraction of CakePHP would be outstoundingly small.
ASP.NET and Ruby on Rails are very prevalent (well, ASP.NET is) whilst I'd never even heard of CakePHP till now. If there were a great demand for these types of subfora, I hope the SS mods would have raised a flag by now.

If we were going to create subfora on PHP-based frameworks, I can think of an array of better candidates. A PHP frameworks subforum would not serve a great purpose, in my opinion, especially seeing as a quick scan of the current PHP threads comes up with no specific frameworks mentioned.

Fair enough, but really, how many "ASP" things are done in VB6 anymore? What's good for the goose is good for the gander.

The way I look at it is we have framework forums for JS, ASP and Ruby, why not one for PHP?

The argument that there are no posts there is self fullfilling - there are no posts because there's no mention of it on the site.

Again, I think a generic PHP Frameworks sub forum is warranted.

I agree a PHP frameworks sub forum would be great, there are a large following of a lot of these frameworks now such as Codeigniter, CakePHP, Kohana, Symfony etc.

bcarl, why don't you chuck a line at WA? I think he'll take a trial of it into consideration.

I know, but I felt the same answer suits for this too.

The reason why there's only limited threads regarding this newly suggested sub-forum might be the lack of page rank for CF for related queries(due to the absence of a dedicated forum page). But, I haven't seen much hits in sub-forums like ASP-.Net, Python, Ruby etc

PS :For me, sub-forums like "Flash & ActionScript", "Perl/ CGI", "Ruby & Ruby On Rails", "Python", "ASP-.Net" etc looks unwanted, at least for now. So I'm going to start another thread, requesting to remove them and make CF slim and :cool: :D
