I visited some theme marketplace as themeforest, codecaynon, templatemonster...and I found one script that I like.
But it programmed by an author (not base on Wordpress site), their php script is very perfect but it was not programmed with Wordpress cms. I'm too familiar with wordpress

I think if I buy php script then it can have some problems on security and updates..

According to you, PHP Script vs Wordpress, which one I should buy and which one is better?

You shouldn't judge their system if you haven't tested it.

You just might find custom CMS beats Wordpress. This depends on your niche and what you are looking for though.

(Both run with environments, PHP & SQL)

I would suggest you to go with WordPress theme. If you not familiar or use to with PHP script, then ignorance is better option. Because messing up with some you don't know will lead you in problems. For your knowledge, most of PHP script written supports WordPress without any problems but using them unknowingly will not good idea.

I wouldn't jump the gun, I would actually consider this other script over wordpress for a couple of big reasons. You worry about security, the main reason why Wordpress is such a vulnerable platform and is targeted so often is because it is widely used. A large portions of websites on the internet utilize Wordpress, and thus make it a target for attack. However, this platform, if it works and does the job right, you will more than likely be safe on it rather than with wordpress.

Not knowing the exact details you can probably integrate that script with creating a new page or post template within your chosen wordpress theme... Here is a good article which shows you how easy it could be. You can find it here: here

Alternatively you could use a plugin which allows you to add php code... However there are limitations to this approach as these calls will be made after the server has rendered the page from WP database...

Question for ya. I've been using X Theme and it comes with a pretty robust childs theme, so needless to say all of my php edits are literally copy and paste.

Is there a plugin that allows you to simply copy and paste edits?

To comment on the thread, I am by no means a coder, not even close. I use Wordpress for everything!

I get the job done cheaper and faster and clients are happy. Cheers to that.

Hi Eric -

For sure there are.. I use "Insert PHP" plugin which you can find here. Instead of the usual wrapper e.g. <?php echo 'hello world'; ?> you use [insert_php] echo 'hello world'; [/insert_php] ...

You can do some cool things with it such as:

1) Capturing originating url which visitor came from e.g. $_SERVER['HTTP_REFERER'];
2) Grab IP of visitor and amend contents accordingly..
3) Set hidden variables and pass to autoresponder when folks sign up to your list - which I do for points 1 & 2 ;-)

It does have its limitations as mentioned as the page/post that you amend it on is rendered first before making the php calls... For more complex operations you would have to create a post/page template and place your php code within that.... or alternatively use iframes (but be careful as you will need to lockdown your script from being exposed/called from outside of your domain) or of course venture into writing a plugin...

I hope that helps! If need be let me know if there is some specific your looking to do and I'll be more than happy to look into it for you....

Cheers,

Sid

You would buy Wordpress if all you want to do is to install the theme on your Wordpress website and use a WYSIWYG editor to make blog submissions.
You would buy a PHP script if you want to integrate it in another framework or platform.

Wordpress have very large community, on 95% issues you will find the answers in Google, so your choice is obvious.

We used WordPress in the past but we found it to be a little too limiting. Plus, when you begin adding plugins, it starts to slow down your website.

I'd say if you dont have a lot of experience with actually executing php scripts then it would be easier to just go with wordpress or something of that sort because you can implement php script through pages in wordpress.

It's really not the hard and you'll have "both platforms" so to speak that way.

In fact wordpress also built with PHP.

the script you are taking about may be according to coding standards or not.

But wordpress is a vast community and they update the software quite frequently.

So an experienced PHP programmer can say about your script.Without using it no one can assure you.

WordPress is great for putting up simple sites, such as a blog. If you want a super customized site, use PHP. The more plugins you use on your WordPress site, the slower your site becomes. WordPress is constantly adding features, which is great for a really lite website, but eventually those features will really bog you down. Speed is an extremely important aspect to consider. Google pays really close attention to site speed when it comes to SEO.
