Downloading ColdFusion Documentation

This post is more than 2 years old.

Just as an FYI, note that you can download ColdFusion documentation here: Downloads. The main download is a rar file of the most recent updates. At the time of this blog post the archive was created April 30, 2014. The ColdFusion team will update this archive from time to time so that edits to the wiki are reflected.

Also on this page are downloads for ColdFusion 10, ColdFusion Builder 2, and ColdFusion 9. What may not be obvious is that if you follow the link for the ColdFusion 9 docs you will also find PDF links for ColdFusion 8 to 10. I've kept a copy of the PDF docs on my system for years now so I have access to the docs offline. I also found it easier to search them than the online docs. (Although the search on the wiki now is pretty tight.)

Finally, you may remember I reviewed Dash for OS X a few weeks ago. Don't forget that it supports ColdFusion documentation as well.

Ray, do you have, can you provide, a .zip of the CF Help Docs? The zip posted last month by Adobe all have redirect (Meta refresh) pointing to their new site, so all it does it go back to the live site instead of viewing the pages locally. I used to have this, but can't find it on my system anymore. Any help appreciated. Thanks

I'll ping the guy in charge of docs.

Wow, you weren't kidding. The easiest thing to do would be to open up the directory in your IDE and use multi-file search and replace. It would fix it in seconds. I'll let the doc person know though.
