FuseTalk Coldfusion Forum....is this still alive?

I've inherited a very old version of Fuse Talk forums, and I went to their website to get some support using their forums (yes they eat their own dog food). And in looking at the number of posts and the dates, it looks like this software is pretty defunct. I think the last post was sometime in 2008 or 2009. For a forum product not having an updated forum really raises some eyebrows with me.

Plus, have you seen what they're charging for their product? ==:O

I think I hear Galleon calling in the near distance :)

CF Builder FTP is soooo slow....wtf?

I make a simple change to a file and use the Aptana FTP client built in to push the file and I can literally wait over 30 seconds for the file to get pushed. What's the issue? Is it a config on my end? Is it the FTP client? I'm better off using something like filezilla and do a drag and drop.

It seems to be scanning every file before it finds what it's looking for. If I'm 3 levels deep the console shows that it's scanning the above levels...omg...

CF8 + Paypal integration help

I think this is a simple task, but I haven't seen any examples of this on the web (or I haven't looked hard enough).

How do you send custom information with a Paypal button click? Let's assume I want to send an email address or userID or UUID with a payment for tracking. After they do all their processing at paypal's site, I want that tracking variable to be available on the receiving thankyou.cfm page hosted at my site.

Right now it's done via the logged in person's session ID. They have to be logged in, have to have a session scoped ID available and the thank you page will update the DB based on this criteria.

I'd like to change this from a session scoped variable to a coded variable sent from the get go.

Is this possible? Is it as simple as adding a hidden form field ?

Thanks in advance to all you paypal ninjas :)

Coldfusion Meetup: "SEO and ColdFusion" - May 27, 2010

"Search Engine Optimization for the ColdFusion Developer"

TOPIC DESCRIPTION: (provided by the speaker) In today's world, the bulk of our traffic to the websites we create comes from search engines. And with the exception of failed business models burning through VC money, more traffic equals more money. But few developers bother to do even basic search engine optimization, which can dramatically improve their websites performance on Google and the like. The good news is that the basics of SEO is relatively easy to do, especially inside of most CFML applications. We'll go over the fundamentals of SEO and how you can easily integrate these principals into your application. We'll also discuss some free programs you can use to track your progress, and some other techniques to keep you in Google's good graces.

MEETING URL: http://experts.acrobat.com/cfmeetup/

DURATION: Approx. 1 hour

SPEAKER: Jeff Gladnick

Jeff Gladnick lives in San Francisco, CA and has been a ColdFusion developer for over 10 years, since version 4.5. He's developed web applications for a variety of companies including the Produce Marketing Association, Dun & Bradstreet, The Gap, and Adobe. He particularly likes Model Glue as a framework, and also owns http://www.greatdentalwebsites.com, a company that allows dentists to create their own website (using a model-glue application).

WHEN: Thurs. May 27, 12:00pm US ET (UTC/GMT-4)

Help: Need to CFHTTP this cURL

I have never had the opportunity to use cURL before. But, now my manager wants to integrate a form submission to our third party vendor, Pivotal Tracker.

The cURL I'm referring to is here: https://www.pivotaltracker.com/help/api?version=v3#add_story

curl -H "X-TrackerToken: TOKEN" -X POST -H "Content-type: application/xml" \
-d "<story><story_type>feature</story_type><name>Fire torpedoes</name><requested_by>James Kirk</requested_by></story>" \

I have the TOKEN and the PROJECT_ID. I just don't know how to form the call with CFHTTP.

Any help is much appreciated.

Have an iPhone? Wish you had an Android? Now you can have both!!

Ok, I've been at this for a couple of hours now. I thought I was on the right track, but it looks like I'm still a bit lost :(

I have a modal login form using jquery and colorbox plugin.

Here is a snippet of my jquery ajax call:

url: 'cfc/security.cfc?method=login',
data: datastring,
dataType: 'json',
success: function(data) {
    var response = eval(data);

When calling this CFC from a URL using the correct parameters, I get this:
{"MESSAGE":"Verified! Logging in...","FNAME":"John","LNAME":"Smith","VALID":true}
This is exactly what I want.

However, when running the ajax call above I get:

<wddxPacket version='1.0'><header/><data><string>{"MESSAGE":"Verified! Logging in....","FNAME":"John","LNAME":"Smith","VALID":true}</string></data></wddxPacket>

And this is screwing me up.

Here is my CFC snippet:

<CFFUNCTION name="login" access="remote" returntype="string" output="false">
<cfargument name="username" type="string" required="Yes">
<cfargument name="password" type="string" required="Yes">
<cfargument name="stayLogged" type="string" required="no" default="no">
<CFSET myReturn = {}>
.... sql statements ...
if valid
<cfset myReturn.valid = "true">
<cfset myReturn.fname = #getLogin.fname#>
<cfset myReturn.lname = #getLogin.lname#>
<cfset myReturn.message = "Verified! Logging in....">

if invalid
<cfset myReturn.valid = "false">
<cfset myReturn.fname = "">
<cfset myReturn.lname = "">
<cfset myReturn.message = "Unverified! Please try signing in again.">

<cfset myReturn = serializeJSON(myReturn)>
<cfreturn myReturn>

Ok...what am I doing wrong? :(

Blackberry Storm/iPhone/iTouch ColdFusion 9 wall paper

I wanted a reminder of why how I pay my rent, own a cellphone and can make a living.

320x480 (native Blackberry Storm resolution)

Best web page footer...ever!

This was found by my co-worker. I had to pass it on. Can be seen at www.newtoyork.com

Why does IE suck so #$(*# much!? Great error message!

Now if only I can find line #131,265,925 I'd be able to fix it.

I don't have 131k lines of code on this page! How do you diagnose this? None of the available tools out there work well for IE.

Gawd...IE is going to drive me to give up web programming and become a used car salesman.
