Use <cfhttp> to Find a Valid Redirect URL After Login

Tags | ColdFusion | User Defined Functions (UDF)

Posted on March 17, 2014 by Daria

One of the basic functionality of a login process is to redirect the user to the original page they requested before being caught up in the login process. But what if you can’t be assured that the page the user will be redirected to won’t error? What if the page the user is requesting is dependent on form variables being present that will be lost by the login process? My solution is to create a UDF to perform a check after login using the <cfhttp> tag to determine if it is a safe redirect url.

It is a great introduction to the features in FW/1 that I don’t get to in my beginner MVC presentation. Good next step for really making the framework work for you.

Confessions of a Self Professed Five Tagger

Tags | ColdFusion | Object Oriented (OO)

Posted on January 26, 2011 by Daria

I’ve had a long journey. I sustained a one woman consulting business for over 10 years (96-06) with my knowledge of ColdFusion. When I started I was innovative by bringing library skills into a corporate web competitive intelligence environment. I had a client that believed in me and sustained me, but in the end my application wasn’t keeping up with the demands of the project and I was eventually phased out. It was only later that I realized I had become a dreaded five tagger.

Finding Wide Images with CF8's Image Functions

Tags | ColdFusion | Libraries

Posted on November 6, 2009 by Daria

Ok, so I know I’m a little behind the curve, but I’ve finally been given free reign to use ColdFusion 8 specific tags and functions at work. Issues with a major application during the first testing caused the upgrade to be delayed by 10 months. We finally have an upgraded date so I can start thinking in CF8 instead of CF7. Woot! I was so excited by the first problem I solved that I thought I’d share it.
