Enter The Era Of BlogCFC

I decided that after making a living coding ColdFusion for almost 8 years now, I should be blogging on a CF based blog vs. the WordPress PHP based software that I had been using. WordPress was simple to setup and it was just plain easy. I didnt want to have to deal with ‘more’ CF stuff than I was already dealing with at work.
But, I started a new job last week with a small company that uses CF extensively in all of its web-based payment products and something about the change has renewed my vigor when it comes to ColdFusion. I admit I was getting stale, bored with it. I had been using Fusebox for over 6 years and was kind of excited to try Model-Glue and some of the new stuff around but I still didnt have the interest to sit here night after night working CF code.
I have been playing with Fusebox 5 alot lately and ColdSpring as well and I am really enjoying working on CF stuff again. So I decided to take the plunge and setup Ray Camdens latest version of BlogCFC. The setup was really quite simple and as you can see, I have strayed quite far from the default look-n-feel by modifying all of the layout files. I am working on a themeing engine now that will make it much easier to create themes for the blog since I like to change my theme quite frequently. If you have a CF host and havent tried BlogCFC, head over to Ray’s site and check it out!

  1. What do you think of the admin interface? Does it have auto-saving of drafts like WordPress does? What about all the fancy eye candy that WordPress has?

    Last time I tried BlogCFC I was sorely unimpressed. Installed WordPress and I was *amazed* at all the features, and the hundreds of plugins available to extend the functionality.

    Have you looked at Mango Blog? I haven’t used it, but I know some people that have tried it and were pretty impressed.
