I've just checked into the V6 SVN repo the new render support for BlogCFC. This is a major new way to do plugins for BlogCFC. I've long had a way to dynamically add support for <foo> type tags. This was done via CFCs, yet no one actually ever used this feature. I didn't really document it so that's my fault.
In V6, you can now add support for tags via custom tags. Let me give you an example. In the render/content folder you will find a custom tag named code.cfm. The mere existence of this tag will make BlogCFC entries (and pages) recognize <code> in your data. You can pass any arbitrary argument in the code tag, <code style="sql">, and they will be passed as arguments to the tag. Also, if you do:
(FYI, "fcode" is there because I just realized I probably can't use the code block in BlogCFC to demo a code block. ;)
Anything inside the tag will be passed to the custom tag as the content argument. So here is the code support as it stands now:
<cfparam name="attributes.format" default="coldfusion">
<cfparam name="attributes.content" default="">
<cfif not len(attributes.content)>
<cfif attributes.format is "plain">
<span style="font-weight: bold; color: ##ee0000">
Where it gets cool is - in the next update, I'll add support for:
This will make it so you can include JS files and even if 2 instances of the tag are run, the JS files are included only once.
Anyway, the point of all of this is to make doing plugins/add-ins for BlogCFC significantly easier.
