I am using wordpress CMS for my job board website, i had to install job board plugin but i want to upgrade the functionality of the website because it's having so many limitations.

1. I would like to know if i can upgrade wordpress to suit my functionality or do i have to develop another website with PHP?

2. If i develop another website with PHP would it be possible for me to move the content, user profiles etc from wordpress the new PHP website without losing the data on the website?

3. If you develop your website with PHP, i hope it would be possible to redesign, re-modify, and upgrade the functionality of the website without losing your data?

4. Can i be able to develop robust web application with PHP or should go for another programme

      This really depends on how much you value your time. Creating your own website with lots of features could be extremely time consuming.

    1.- You can upgrade the plugin if the code is not obfuscated, or else buy the developer version of the plugin so you can hire a coder to improve it.

    2.- If you develop another website, of course you can migrate, but migrating is a little bit time consuming doing tables with same names of columns and such.

    3.-You wont lose data, as long as you keep the database in the mysql intact. And it can be migrated. Try using PHPMyAdmin to navigate your DB.

    4.- Yes you can design better platforms using solid frameworks such as Laravel, CakePHP, CodeIgniter, etc. Wordpress its just a CMS with some basics for newbies or non-coders.

    Hope this helps, or maybe I didnt understand so well your requirements.

    It really depends on what you want to do.

    Sometimes I develop straight php, and sometimes wordpress. If I use wordpress though, I often mix php within wordpress.

    For example if you want to place pull data from a database using php and mysql, you can write your script, include it in a wordpress template and then simply set your page to use that template.

    To make a php template for word press simply

    1. go into your theme folder, (wp-content/themes/name_of_theme) and copy the page.php file
    2. rename the file to something like mypage.php
    3. take out all the code between the <main> tags and replace it with your own, you can just <? echo "hello world" to test this.

    4. at the very top of the page use this code
    /*
    Template Name: mypage
    */
    5. upload your file, make a new page and you will see mypage on the theme dropdown. Save it and you will see your php on your new page

    I hope this helps, and please let me know if you've any questions.

    You can maintain all your data without having to start from scratch by using the Rest API.

    You could build that other site with php, angular, or other if you like and use the Rest API.

    The latest versions of WP with this support is amazing and offers incredible integrations and customizations.
    The future of WordPress and the way it will be used will change quite a bit because of this.

    First, there is no such thing as loosing data, unless you are dum enough to run some of the killers commands like update, delete or drop without a backup first, which is so easy `mysqldump -uusername -p DbName > dbname.sql` then zip dbname.sql and download it to a safe place.

    Once you have a backup of your database safe, you can do with it whatever you please, like redesign the whole database and then write a script to read the data from the old and ugly database and then store in another way to the new and fancy design.

    I hate wordpress even do i've been working with it since the begining of the time, wordpress is the symbols for the worst programming habits ever written, but i need to make a leaving so it's something you have to just live with.

    For alternatives you should close your eyes and pick laravel without thinking twice, laravel is the symbols for modern and smooth development workflow.

    I don't wanna leave without anything to look at, so this is a php class for a big model that i wrote for a client, to generate a full database to show case his project to the investors, i picked up for you to give a good idea on how generating, inserting data in to the database look like, https://gist.github.com/OussamaElgou...fb5bb33a8f92f8

    Hope that help

    WordPress is a user friendly CMS by which you can run your basic+ level websites. For high features like plugins, any finction etc you need to take help with the professionals. Whereas PHP is a language and it is not user friendly.. You must have atleast basic knowledge of coding for developing a website. Again same thing ... for integrating high features your only option is .. the experts.

    Wordpress is already built with PHP.
    All you need to do is write a plugin to extend the functionality of Wordpress.

    The Wordpress Codex is a good place to start.
