BlogCFC 5.9.1.001 Released
I'm going to be lazy and just paste in the release notes. I'm watching the trampoline event at the Olympics while I do this - and you know what? The trampoline is freaking cool. Anyway, here is the 001 release for 5.9.1:
/client/stats.cfm - Oracle fixes (thanks to Steven Tomcavage)
/client/index.cfm - Forgot to use #application.rooturl# in podcasting support - thanks to Marion Bass
/org/camden/blog/blog.cfc - Include author name in emails
/install/mysql.sql - Changed the text fields in entries (body, morebody) to longtext. It may be a good idea for you to manually update your table.
/xmlrpc/xmlrpc.cfm - when deleting, clear cache
/client/tags/textarea.cfm - make the custom tag correctly handle a closing tag
/client/admin/page.cfm - Use the textarea custom tag. For those who modded textarea to use an RTE, it adds RTE to the page editor.
Does blogCFC still rely on creating an instance of a java function? I'm on a cheap hosting plan, and the only object I'm able to create is an instance of a cfc.
(or if there's a workaround now, I'd be for that)
I really dug blogCFC, and would like to use it again.
Thanks for the quick reply, Ray!
If you edit the file manually, use commas.
what other information is required?
The basic idea is to pass a struct of data, set at runtime, to the blog initializer, to set up blog metadata. This is talked about in the docs a bit. You can also download the code for RIAForge.org (from the faq) which shows how I do the blogs there.
TO any beginners, don't forget to move the "images" directory in the admin diretory to get CAPTCHA image to work!
I am just getting started with blogcfc although I've used other blog software previously. I have several suggestions but my first situation is that I would like to change all of the <form tags to <cfform tags. I did an extended replace and did just that. Generally, everything is fine except that in several locations the <cfoutput> tags are not properly nested inside the <cfform and errors result. I don't see any reason why the <cfoutput> tags are not nested correctly and when I fix them everything is fine.
So, my question to you is can we update this to use <cfform tags? If I do it can I send the version back in to update the current version being developed?
I've never participated in a group development project like blogcfc and I imagine I'm violating protocol or stepping on toes. Please forgive the rookie!
Thanks for your consideration of this.
As to - do I want to use your code w/ cfform - the answer is no. I rarely use cfform and I don't want to start using it in BlogCFC.
You can see the error at http://www.wowguildhouse.com (eventually will be a site for World of Warcraft guilds to house thier site...watch out for the dust and construction materials...it is a work in progress that I just got started on). Just click on the blog link. The login/password is admin and test. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Can anyone tell me what might cause this?
