    Which is better to use for LMS (CORE PHP or YII)

    We are developing our Education based interactive teaching LMS system and we have developed two logins for that in PHP (YII). However, now we are working on two more logins and these logins will control the features of previous two logins. The issue we are facing is that we started these current developments in YII and we have to make changes now and then as per requirement. Someone suggested us that instead of YII we should develop these two logins in CORE PHP instead of YII. Now our doubts are:

    1. Will there be any issue if we use CORE PHP now for these two logins instead of YII. So can we go with Core PHP or the only option is YII. We can start development for these two logins from scratch.
    2. If we select CORE PHP for this and further development will this affect the working, functionality, scalability or quality of my LMS.
    3. Will there be any security issues if we go with core PHP and which one is better considering security.
    4. As we have to make changes now and then while development , which one is better considering changes : CORE PHP or YII

    Please suggest so that we can proceed further.

    I don't know Yii nor how you are using it to implement your login system, but I've never had any problem using other frameworks (e.g. CodeIgniter and the custom framework we use at work) in implementing multi-level login systems (e.g. regular users, moderators, and admins). A typical approach is to add a column to the users table in the DB used to indicate each user's type (e.g. 1 = normal user, 2 = moderator, 3 = admin), and you add conditional logic as needed to control what levels have access to which pages/data.
