ColdFusion Roadshow Recap

Wednesday was the ColdFusion Roadshow in San Francisco. Essentially this was 2 1-hour sessions by Elishia Dvorak and Rakshith Naresh about the current state of ColdFusion, and future plans. Much of the info was similar to what we’d been told at CF Summit and CF Camp last year, but there were some new details as well. (I’ll post my notes from both sessions shortly.)  Overall it looks like Adobe has some great ideas planned for the next 2 ColdFusion releases (tentatively scheduled for 2018 and 2020).

New Mura 7 iFrame Plugin

While working on a project with Blue River, Eddie Ballisty and I had to write a Mura plugin for adding iFrames to a Mura website.  Blue River was kind enough to let us release the plugin as open source for the rest of the Mura community.

You can download the plugin here: https://github.com/nolanerck/Mura-IFrame-Plugin

Changes to the Mura Google News Sitemaps Plugin

Just a quick note about my Mura Google News Sitemaps plugin.  Per a client request, I’ve added an
“Excluded SubTypes” option to the Settings page.  Essentially this is a “short circuit” for the Exclude From News Sitemap field on the Content - Extended Attributes tab.
