BlogCFC is now at GitHub!

Well, it has been done.

BlogCFC has been moved to GitHub.

Ok, so I lied, the first task was not to get the current code moved to GitHub, it was to create a BlogCFc Twitter account.

You can now follow BlogCFC on Twitter for up to date information

More on the Future of BlogCFC

Hi everyone, it's me, your new benevolent dictator for BlogCFC. I just wanted to let everyone know that I am busy trying to figure out the 'road map' for BlogCFC. Keep an eye out here as there may be a lot of information forthcoming in the near future.

The first task on my 'To Do' list is get the existing 5.x codebase moved from SVN and into GitHub. This will be happening soon and I will post here when that is done.

I have received many offers of assistance and started to reach out to some people already. For right now, there will be a small, core group of people working to get the next version ready for public consumption. Once we get the next version to a somewhat workable state, the code will be posted to GutHub. If you have not heard from me yet, please be patient, I will be contacting everyone in the coming weeks.


The future of BlogCFC

(Cross post from my blog...)

My recent interview with CFHOUR has just been posted. In this podcast I discuss Zeus (and let slip a few new things), but I also talked a bit about the future of BlogCFC.

BlogCFC is my oldest, and most widely used, open source product. While it has some questionable architecture (ok, it barely has architecture), I'm proud of what it has accomplished and how it's helped others.

The flip side to this pride is a growing guilt over the fact that I've been able to release 6.0. I took some admirable stabs at it, but, it just never gelled.

A few weeks ago I came to realize that I was holding back BlogCFC as a product. I was a barrier to it growing. I thought about Joe Rinehart (a man I greatly admire) and his decision to hand over the reigns of Model-Glue to Dan Wilson, and it occurred to me that maybe it was time to do the same.

So with that being said, today I'm announcing that I'm stepping down as the project lead for BlogCFC. Scott Stroz will be taking over. He has already reached out to others and has some plans, and I plan on staying heavily involved. (It's funny - now that I'm not "responsible", I actually feel more motivated than before.)

I won't deny - I'm more than a bit sad about this. But I honestly feel like this is for the best. I've got faith in Scott (and the folks he has reached out too).

To everyone who has helped build BlogCFC (and quite a few folks have contributed), I thank you!

Very important fix

If you have the BlogCFC, please update immediately. Category links are completely borked.


This is almost all thanks to Stephen Moretti:

  • Minor formatting change to addsub.cfm.
  • updated jquery.selectbox.js
  • added pageadmin user role and retricted access to page related functions in the admin menu
  • made print use the entry alias for the file name instead of just "print"
  • added a random number to the end of the ajax call in the admin entry form to help prevent IE caching of data
  • added cfcontent to proxy.cfm to make sure that json is returned with the correct mime type to keep IE happier
  • added a couple of admin css hacks to make the login form and select boxes on the entry form display correctly in IE7. Released

Just a minor update. Includes a xml-rpc fix and a robots.txt block for the mobile directory. Thanks go to Dan and James for these. Released

This just corrects a small, but annoying issue with emails sent for moderated comments. Released

This version includes mobile fixes, as well as support for not sending hyper cool 10 inch tablets to the mobile version.
