.CFM pages

10+ Year Member

Msg#: 670 posted 9:01 pm on May 11, 2001 (gmt 0)

Am just wondering if there are any special procedures to working with .CFM web pages? Can I use FTP to download and work on them and then upload with FTP. I usually work with Html and occasionally .HTM but never worked with .CFM yet. Any information is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

CFM is Cold Fusion. You can use ftp normally but be careful which program you use to open a document (you'll probably want a no frills straight html editor, programs like dreamweaver (ultradev excluded) can add extra code and screw up the page. Also cold fusion uses their own proprietary tags so unless your just editing text, you'll probably want to leave it up to a pro.

Allaire was the orginator of Cold Fusion, so they included lots of CF functionality in Homesite. Allaire was close partners with MacroMedia, and now that they have been acquired, I'd bet that DreamWeaver will also treat CFM pages very kindly.

I dont use Dreamweaver, I use a simple little piece of software called Didapro 2.50 designed by Faico. Does anyone know if this software would change any code if I open up a Cold Fusion Page in it?

I have hand coded and edited Cold Fusion pages in notepad when I didn't have HomeSite handy.

Send up a CF test page, first in FTP just to make sure the webserver is running Cold Fusion before bothering with sending up the rest of the CF files. CF test file, below

This code below, tests whether the Cold Fusion server can detect your IP and browser when pulling it up online.

Your browser is: <B>#HTTP_USER_AGENT#</B><P>
