    CodeIgniter is probably the easiest to understand and use. All serious frameworks have extensive documentation and examples on their websites. Writing a tutorial on how to use a framework is a bit extensive for a forum post.

    We use Symfony here at my company and I've found it to be pretty powerful, but a bit under documented. The first thing you have to realize is that symfony supports plugins for ORM (either doctrine or propel) which you need to configure to read from your database. Once you do that, you'll be able to start building actual pages.

    ORM is a system for programmatically querying a database without using SQL. I've found that both Doctrine and Propel are lacking in features and support, but Doctrine is clearly the better of the two.

    The Wiki page on ORM will tell you more.
