I have this personal web application that was built from scratch last year and has already been considerably indexed by google. I used some Apache mod rewrite to make the urls friendly. Last week I decided it would be faster/easier to jumpstart the project again if I just focus on my application and just use aÂ framework to handle other intracacies like abstractions, security and etc. I was aiming for CodeIgniter but got a glimpse on BuddyPress for WordPress(not a framework) which has most of the features I want for my app. So long story short I ended up porting my application to be a plugin for WordPress.
