    Advice to a n00b pls - regarding PHP Framework

    OK Im new to PHP and keen to learn.

    I have set myself a project to build a database MySQL application which would compare the fees of competitors within my niche. The tables would hold: company name, address, products (which are all the same for everyone) and the costs involved with the products that everyone sells.

    My question is - how much should I spend time learning a framework like codeignitor ?

    Am I best to stick to php basics and then move into codeignitor?

    Put it this way, if you were me just starting out would you learn code ignitor at the same time? (PS doesnt have to be codeignitor - that is one that seems to be the 'easiest' to learn)

    Thanks for all advice

    You should learn php first, then bring in the framework knowledge. As a framework like codeignitor is based on php, if you know php, it makes learning that easier.

    You can definitely just start by using the framework, but it's better for you in the long run if you learn the basis of the framework first (php in this case) and go from there.

    Personally I never found a framework for php necessary.
