Version 1.7 Released!

It is a small, but long overdue update. The original idea was to jump to 2.0 with a brand new admin. But our employee at the time left the company. I'll make a post about this later, but at this point, I need to get someone to create the HTML for me. Donations would be greatly appreciated to get this part started.

This update has some bug fixes, including a fix to the file explorer for ColdFusion 10 sponsored by Vin Collins

Some of the changes:

  • Added ability to switch editors. Right now the options are CkEditor and TinyMCE. There is no UI to change, but you can change the option from the database directly. If you have custom settings, those can be appended to the header by adding a setting in the settings table. 
  • Added picture chooser to Author settings
  • Fix file explorer issue in CF 10.
  • Added email option to the CommentProperty tag
  • Made changes to allow plugins change the current template skin on the fly
  • Changed default date format to make it easier to localize

Google Custom Search Plugin Updated

I've updated the Google custom search engine plugin so that it uses Google's newest code. It will also use the normal search pod that comes with most of the themes available for a more seamless experience.

Mango and the Open CFML Foundation

Mango Blog is proud to announce that is has become one of the Open CFML Foundation projects. The Open CFML Foundation wishes to promote the growth and awareness of the CFML language and a variety of related open source projects (projects that use CFML or CFML engines).

It is my belief that such a foundation was needed for CFML to become more widely used.

tungleMe Plugin

Arjan Muthert has created a plugin that adds a tungle.me widget in the sidebar. With the tungle.me widget vistors can schedule a meeting with the blog owner.
