Php Framework Vs Cms

Recommended Posts

They are different things.

 

-- A CMS is a web application for content management -- usually to do with an informational website, ecommerce store or blog, allowing a user to edit the content without needing to know HTML/CSS or to code by hand.

 

-- A PHP framework is used to build web applications, quicker and easier than by starting from scratch. You could use a PHP Framework to build a CMS, an ecommerce platform, a social networking platform, etc.

 

Basically, a CMS is a web application, and a framework can be used to build web applications. For example, Expression Engine CMS is built on a version of the CodeIgniter framework.

Sorry, you're going to have to rephrase the question, since I'm not sure what you are asking.

 

But my original point still stands. A CMS is a web application. A framework is a pre-built structure that you can use to build web applications quicker/easier than starting from scratch. Think of it this way: a CMS is a fully built house. A framework is the plans for the house.

I like joomla for building content heavy websites. Wordpress for just a blog is OK but I really don't like wordpress that much. I think Concrete 5 is a pretty good cms that you could probably extend quite a bit. I've looked at Drupal but getting my head wrapped around it is pretty tough. No CMS's seem to fit the bill perfectly for things you might want to build.
