Recommended php framework
I want to learn about php programming with framework. Some one let me know that Codeigniter is good, but i got information from other friend that Codeigniter will not be continued because the developer has gone.
Some one let me know to learn Yii, and some other friend tell me to learn Laravel..
Any advice about this would be very appreciated.
Thanks for any kind help, sorry if my english is not good enough.

I had a nice experience with CakePHP. As I understand from reviews it is the same "simple-level" as CodeIgniter but its ORM is more interesting. It is in active development now, I think.
I do not say it is the best PHP framework (I'm java developer myself and far from these matters - but I know that CakePHP and CodeIgniter are the simplest and perhaps worst frameworks) - anyway for beginner it looks a nice choice.
However, after writing two small sites with CakePHP I started to invent my own "simple and stupid" framework and wrote two more sites in it (among them my programming education site CodeAbbey). Could not tell whether it is very successful attempt, but it give me significant experience
Of course you can try at once more mature frameworks, like Symfony 2 or Yii. Perhaps second is bit easier to start.

My company is in the middle of evaluating new PHP frameworks at the moment, so far Symfony is winning because it's the most robust.

As a starter you should first learn core php and then Codeignitor which is the easiest of the frameworks.Yii and Zend might be little difficult for you to learn as you are a beginner.However you can try and learn Yii after learning corephp.Yii is defintely a great framework which is used for application development now a days.My advice to you is learn simple things initially and gradually switch to frameworks like Yii.
