I'd liike someone with exposure/experience to codeigniter to tell me what are the biggest ptifalls.

The reason for my question is that I have had a contractor offer to do some coding at a reduced rate if they can use it.

Presuming it is a solid platform, is there a solid community to work with ?

A question to be asked in regards to CodeIgniter should be that if you let someone develop it for you in CodeIgniter, will you be maintaining the code or will the contractor?

If you'll be maintaining it and don't know PHP or CodeIgniter, then it might be wise to as the contractor to do the work in a way that allows you the greatest ease of maintenance.

If you will not be maintaining the code, then it shouldn't matter what framework the code is developed under.

Commenting on CodeIgniter though, I use it quite a bit for development and must say that I love working with it! It's a very well thought out framework and security was heavily considered in the framework also.

Best regards,.

Thanks Adrian,
I have a reasonable understanding of PHP but never used CodeIgniter.
My concern was if the contractor developed an app using it, would another contractor be able to takeover or would we be locked into using those with specific CodeIgnitor knowledge.
Can you comment ?
