Source code for ColdFusionBloggers

This post is more than 2 years old.

Did you know the source behind ColdFusion Bloggers is open source? It isn't my ... "best" code. It's got some bad practices in it. But it's now been deployed in multiple locations, including,, and It's also behind my new web site that's jQuery related that I'm not quite ready to announce yet. (But you can hit it right now if you spend half an IQ point to guess the URL.) My buddy Scott Stroz did a bit of code cleanup on the package today and made it even easier to deploy. Now things like the title, Twitter integration, etc, are configurable. It's still not what I'd consider great code. There's some bad repetition in the ping/scheduled process area. But hey - it's free, so enjoy:

Edited March 22, 2011: You can now find the code up on Github:

The code is free to use by anyone. I just ask that you visit the wishlist if you use it. (Scott has one too!)

Hi Ray,

any plans to check this code in somewhere using svn or git?

I'm going setup a MapGuide blog aggregator using your code

Cheers Zac

No, but there is no reason _not_ to. Remind me next week.

Dear Ray,
an attribute for the language of each blog would be a nice enhancement for future versions of coldfusionbloggers. So users could select to show blogs in all languages or only in their preferred language.

@Manuela: Agreed
@zac: It's up on github now. Will be editing the blog entry later to show the url.
