    @Ben, Yes, I tried this, but for some reason I only get the stock simple CF error screen, not my custom one as dictated by the CFERROR tag. This is what I used instead of modifying web.config %windir%\system32\inetsrv\appcmd.exe set config "My ColdFusion Website Name/" -section:system.w... read more »

  • Ask Ben: Handling Errors With ColdFusion CFError

    I was having a similar issue. Seems that in IIS7 you can set the error page globally by clicking on your server name in the left pane, then going to Error Pages, and specifying a local CFM of your choosing. What this does is bypass CF and run the error processing page, but without the error scope (s... read more »

    This is awesome. Looking for a way to include code like this in the head of a page with a form and keep updating two hidden form elements with the GPS x y until the form is posted. I found this, but it doesn't appear to work for me. http://forums.adobe.com/thread/993207... read more »

  • Ask Ben: Processing Files With CFThread In ColdFusion

    Posted on Jul 23, 2013 at 10:47 AM

    As a follow-up, I realize now that although I am using cfthread on the action page, none of the session var code is inside the cfthread blocks -- that's just for image processing. So, this issue really has nothing to do with cfthread. I was having trouble figuring out why setting session.onerecordI... read more »

  • Ask Ben: Processing Files With CFThread In ColdFusion

    Hey Ben, I am trying cfthreads for the first time and am using it for a similar situation you started with above, namely file uploads. However, my action page is actually receiving multiple files from a java file uploader. It can send a whole folder of files, and I'd like to ensure every file gets... read more »

    @Bruce Holm, > So I think sending two parts is a minimum. > Giving the user the option of opting for > text only saves bandwidth [and storage] How does sending two cfmailparts with both an HTML version and a text-only version save bandwidth and storage?

    Ben, I've been using the straight type="HTML" for a while, and every once in a while someone replies back with "email was empty." Others complain that the email was entirely on a blue background and they couldn't read the text. So I am considering parting the mail and hoping this fixes the issue f... read more »
