I'm an italian php developer (not very skilled) using both ADOdb and Smarty;
I've developed a classic intranet/internet database application here on work; its business works well, but presentation doesn't satisfy me and so I began to look for a more flexible and homogeneous system to keep together my pieces of code. So I met tikiwiki and it seems it can do the job for me. My intention for now is taking some parts or tikiwiki customizing them to fit my application's needs, and to achieve this I've started to go deeper into the code. Naturally I will share my experiences with community if I will ever get some interesting result. My main problem is generating dynamic layout triggered to users operations, and it seems to me I tiki can do it for me.
For now my thanks to all people involved in developing this nice piece of software.
