CakePHP or CodeIgniter

I’m deciding which framework to use, there are lots of pros and cons for both framework.  Personally I have experience in CodeIgniter, which I find it is fairly easy to use/ master. 

On the other hand, as the new company using CakePHP, I wanted to jump into the bakery world, but something stops me.

No doubt about it, lots of people are supporting CakePHP, if you type CakePHP vs CodeIgniter on Google, it will returns you tons of result.  I have a tight deadline to meet.  To pick up a new framework might not be a wise choice at this time.

At the documentation helps me to decide, CakePHP produce a bad use guide if compare to CodeIgniter.  As for me, I came from CI, I think I will stick to CI for the time being. 

I have decided, CodeIgniter is the way to go!  But I will revisit CakePHP, and definitely will get to know more about it.  Hopefully the future version will provide a better user guide and documentation.

nice to know you stick to CI but one thing of CI is that its not fully object oriented and it lacks major code reuse in the framework. Kohana is what you need if you wanna visit something like cakephp and get all what ruby on rails has. Kohanaphp.com to the rescue

I heard of one framework called "Yii" but I am not sure whether it is good. Maybe you can help checking it out.
