I am actually a newbie to coldfusion and I am just getting to grips with the code, so go easy on me!
Firstly when I installed the developer edition of CF I had to select a port of 8080 because my machine would not allow port 80 because it was adamant that another program was using it. I thought it was skype but I changed that but it still wouldn't work so I had to use 8080. I am not sure as to whether this a fundamental issue.
I have been doing a basic exercise on webucator.com 'Passing Variables via the Query String'.
I thought that this would be fairly straightforward however it is proving difficult.
This is the code that I am placing in the html document HelloWho.html within my wwwroot folder (C:\inetpub\wwwroot ...) :
<html> <head> <title>Greeting the Beatles</title> </head> <body> Choose a Beatle to greet. <ul> <li><a href="HelloWho.cfm?greet=Paul">Paul</a></li> <li><a href="HelloWho.cfm?greet=John">John</a></li> <li><a href="HelloWho.cfm?greet=George">George</a></li> <li><a href="HelloWho.cfm?greet=Ringo">Ringo</a></li> </ul> </body>
and in the cfm page, HelloWho.cfm
<html> <head> <title>Hello <cfoutput>#URL.greet#</cfoutput></title> </head> <body> <cfoutput>Hello #URL.greet#</cfoutput> </body> </html>
When I test this in the browser, if I click on one of the links, it displays :
Even when I placed, in the cfm page, the cfoutput tags around the html tags it still did not work. It displayed all the html coding as written above.
I hope someone might be able to help, I know this may seem fairly basic but it's driving me nuts! If someone could palm me off to a more apt forum that would also be helpul.
