Hi... If I use CodeIgniter, am I required to use the query builder or is there a way I can write my own database queries and run them? Thanks!
No you don't have to use it.
The [user guide](https://www.codeigniter.com/user_guide/d...index.html) has a number of examples using it and not.
no, if complex query, i prefer using store procedure.
