Thanks for all the advice & suggestions, guys.

I agree that some of these frameworks can be misused by people who don’t understand them, which is probably why they can be frowned upon by some. But we shouldn’t forget the usefulness of frameworks in general – they get a project off the ground quickly, and its pointless re-inventing the wheel every time if there is something suitable already out there. If you have enough programming skills, you can customise it to suit.

Time is money as Alen said, and tight deadlines often mean that compromises have to be made somewhere in the project.

I’d love to have time to develop my own framework from scratch, but right now I’d rather use a framework that may not be ideal but that is tried & tested, than to compromise on some other area that could affect the quality or functionality of the website.

Just my thoughts! :)
