My New Website has launched

I have been working hard the last couple of weeks on putting together a new website. I am happy to announce that this site launched tonight. I still have some bugs to work out but nothing major. I needed a site that show of my hard work a little better so please look around and let me know what you think. A big thanks to BlogCFC, ColdBox and ColdFusion 9 for powering this site!

    I think you configured something wrong. When I got the email about this entry, the link did not work. This was the url sent to me:

    Something is off.. in advanced settings it says I posted this on 6/7/11 12:29 AM

    Well done sir.

    On the home page of my site I get a list of recent entries from an instance of blogcfc. What is weird is that url is the same as the one that got emailed out but the time posted in the entry settings clearly shows June 7.

    Dan, this looks great. Is this all BlogCFC or is it a CMS w/blog?

    I think I fixed the issues with the time and entry links. It had to do with the offset but after some testing I think we are good to go. Thanks Ray!

    @Phil – Thanks for the kind words! The blog of course is all BlogCFC with a custom theme. Everything else is a ColdBox application that I wrote.

    Looks great dan!

    2 suggestions: link your logo to your homepage (or something) and make the comment form match.

    Also might want to look at using a widget for your presos (in addition to the awesome format you have)?

    @Todd – Thanks Todd! What do you mean make the comment form match? I plan on doing more with the presentations, just wanted to get something up as a starter.

    New site looks great. Do you plan to blog on the functionality it includes. Would be interested in hearing more about it.

    @John – I would be happy to and if I can clean the code up a bit I may actually just release the code. Anything in particular you would like me to write about?

    @Dan – Just curious about the integration of BlogCFC into you ColdBox based site. Maybe an overview of your goals before you started the project and if you successfully met them all. I’m sure there are so cool features under the hood that a casual visitor may not notice?
