I have seen 2 posts relating to the same subject:
PHP and use a framework.
A further ‘read’ tells/shows me much more YET there does NOT seem to be any reference at all in submission guidelines as to the need to use a framework.
Indeed try this reply from community moderator @ThemeSLR

Yeah! This is really bad. Rejecting an item because its not using a PHP framework(no matter what the script is doing) is a wrong move I think. There are a lot of people reporting this problem(Rejected because of not using a framework).
What you should do (my personal opinion):
Submit a ticket to Envato Help Team(http://enva.to/Help2) and ask for an explanation;
_Good Luck! Btw, Please post the reply message here from the help team(If you want ) _I’m really interested if from now all PHP scripts with no frameworks will be rejected. "
____If it is not in the submission guidelines WHY are scripts being rejected on the basis of no framework (from what I have seen there is/are no other reasons given for rejection)
Can we please have a DEFINATIVE statement about this - as I am in process of preparing a few scripts but they too do not use a framework simply because like many I don’t need to:
PHP is widely-used open source general-purpose scripting language that has been around since 1994 (incidentally when I started to program in PHP - 22 years ago - aghhh :))
Sure I acknowledge that frameworks:
- Make speed development possible
- Provide well-organized, reusable and maintainable code
- Let you grow over time as web apps running on frameworks are scalable
- Spare you from the worries about low-level security of a site
- Follow the MVC (Model-View-Controller) pattern that ensures the separation of presentation and logic
- Promote modern web development practices such as object-oriented programming tools
But a ‘solid’ reliable experienced php person should write good clean ‘pure’’ PHP that should do that anyhow.
So I repeat - Can we please have a DEFINATIVE statement about this as it is something the whole PHP development community here need to know so it’s not just me.
