Migration from Wordpress to CodeIgniter

#1
Hello everyone,

I am the webmaster of some websites (most of them are mine and some are client's projects) running mostly on Wordpress and Joomla.

I am quite frustrated with continuous and time consuming Wordpress updates and the security issues regarding both wordpress and joomla websites.   Two of my websites were already hit by hackers, although I use only paid themes and plugins and never install any cracked software, in the wordpress case due to outdated plugins, and in the Joomla case due to Joomla's built-in lack of strong security.

I plan to switch the websites to other platforms, and I am currently looking at CodeIgniter and Drupal.  Since Drupal is in the same category as wordpress and joomla, I would surely prefer a platform like CodeIgniter for the platform switch.

So I come here to ask a few questions before migrating:

1. Is CodeIgniter a really strong platform regarding security?
2. Do I have to update any themes, or plugins or whatever every now and then like I do in Wordpress ?
3. Is there a plugin or any way to migrate the existing websites to CodeIgniter without paying a fortune or getting a master degree in computing?
4. Can this migration be done in a SEO friendly way without loosing my current google rankings?

Thank you very much in advance for your time and patience.

Do you understand that CodeIgniter (CI) is not a Content Management System (CMS)?

There are a few content management systems built with CI and there are many online examples on how to use CI to create a CMS. (Hint: Google "codeigniter cms")

CI is a great framework for building websites/apps but it offers no built-in content management like that provided by Wordpress, Joomla, or Drupal.

If you have enough free time and skills you can create your own CMS and just adopt it for your sites. If sites is typical this will be not a problem. My own sites without any CMS, just nice front-end and language files in back-end :-).

No, I did not.
To be honest I thought it was a CMS like the ones we mentioned.
And building my own CMS from scratch doesn't sound good at the moment.

Building static websites with a developer framework (now I understand what this means) doesn't sound good too. There are a lot of tools to build static sites like mobirise (which by the way is very nice).

Anyway, thank you very much for your time.
