Web server trouble 1/11/06

The web server which runs the AMMUG website had some hardware problems today which affected the site's performance. We made some changes to the boot drives and rebooted it. So far everything seems to be functioning properly.

Crazy Monday!

Well everyone the students are back...  I hope all of you survive this week!  IT has already been a crazy nightmare here in fisy world!

<CFSCRIPT> Part 2 Using if and else statements in flow control

For simple flow control you could use <CFSCRIPT> along with the if and else keywords. Here is an example:

first_name = "Sam";
if(#first_name# eq "Sam") {
    WriteOutput("Hello #first_name#");
} else {
    WriteOutput("Hello Stranger!");

Here's the explanation:

Set the value of the variable first_name to "Sam". Following "if", the condition is enclosed in parentheses. Each line of code end with the semicolon (;). If the condition inside the parentheses is met, the code inside the curly braces is executed.

Off to a great start

The new Auburn University Macromedia Users Group website looks fantastic. I hope the group will be a great success.

<CFSCRIPT> part 1

What is <CFSCRIPT> and why should I use it? Well, this tag has been around since version 4. If you are familiar with scripting languages such as JavaScript, you may find it easier to write much of your ColdFusion code in a similar syntax.

There are 3 types of coding that may be used inside the <CFSCRIPT> and <\CFSCRIPT> tags.
1. Instead of the <CFSET> tag you assign a value to a variable, use cfscript.
2. For flow control use <CFSCRIPT> instead of <CFIF> or <CFSWITCH> tags.
3. Statements using ColdFusion functions or User Defined Functions UDFs.


With the new addition of the Book Section I think it will be good to move the Dreamweaver killer tips to this, so it can be easily updated.  THis particular topic would work better not being on a forum.  I will leave the title in the forums just for the hopes that others will add their thoughts & ideas here.  Who knows but we will find out!
