I am going design a site and I though about using wordpress for it as the clients want to be able to edit the content and they are not very up to date with the latest technologies, so I though that as wordpress backend editor is quite simple and straight forward, this could be a nice option for it.
Then, I though about just using it as a backend and mix it with some framework such as Laravel or CakePHP to do the rest of the work and design the views.
Do you think this would be a nice approach to it?
When thinking about only using wordpress themes for it, I found myself in trouble when I start thinking about URL routing, having to understand which template files are called for each URL, dealing with forms, detection of touch/mobile devices in the backend.
And on the other hand, I know how to deal with that in other PHP frameworks, so it seems easier for me to do it there.
Any advantage of using only wordpress for the site rather than using an external framework for it? Is there some way to connect the Laravel routing system with the WordPress rewrite system?
