I have been using CodeIgniter for the last several months (
http://www.codeigniter.com ) and I have found it be both easy to learn
and fairly feature complete. It has an active user community and the
user guide is excellent, something I can't say about CakePHP or
Symfony, no matter how cool I think they are.

CodeIgniter is an MVC framework with basic Active Record and unit
testing built in. It's very lightweight. I would recommend checking it
out, especially if it has to be learned quickly.
