i've been giving this a lot of thought, and i've pretty much come to the conclusion that i usually find a cool cms, put it up, write a welcome statement and sit back and think how cool it is.  Then immediately go looking for more skins so i can see if i can make it even cooler.
nevermind the functionality - other than 'being there and looking cool' it rarely meets my needs...
it's not much, but i've just started making my own - my way - for me withonly pages and functionality that i give two hoots about.  even if it takes me 3 years i'll get there someday.
i'm up to getting one page template to work with my whole site at the moment... it's crude but i'm pretty  happy about it. i got a recipe database started that works within my mini framework, and i can switch templates in about an hour (counting configuring time/etc)... if the template is already configured, i can switch in two or three minutes.
if you want to watch it as it grows over the next few years - go to http://gcm.syr.edu/

Megan or anyone else fimilar with CFNUKE or CFxtreme,

What was exactly was wrong those CMS?  was it security or database setup or what.  

I have a desire to build from one those 2 programs.  I have Partner up with someone who know how to do databasing connection with CF and access or MS SQL.  Soon he may be studying the My SQL connections.  

I am not a programmer by any means but I would like to see this type of CSM to come back that I am willing to host it for the community somehow. Some of you may remember that provided 12 different color Skins for CFXtreme.net and those were so fun that I was waiting for the rewrite to throw in some more premade skins

As soon as find out what was the problem with I am going to see if I can do anything about it Smile

Hello...  megan, Newton, PseudoNym, loydte3 & webartist

  Probably don't remember me, I was involved a little with cfnuke and more with cfxtreme, not near as much as you folks though.  I created/modified a few plugins for cfxtreme.  Miss workin with Cold Fusion, its been a while.

Also, Hello to Pablo, I was around alot back when he was involved in cfm-resources.com and hosted from them for years.

Anyhow, the reason I am posting is that it looks like cfnuke is making another go around...

Check it out at http://www.mycfnuke.com  

Looks like Mark is looking for some old code, I may still have it somewhere myself, will have to look around.

Glad to see you all still around.

STP - Gary

@Gary: it's about @#%$ time Smile

i always like cfnuke - good model to build from. if you want to do yourself a favor though - check out the skinning method by ray camden (unless you've already checked it out and opted not to do it?). just google <cf_layout> ray camden - it'll come up... make applying themes a piece o' cake.

if you need help - let me know gmilby|AT|verizon.net

hi megan Smile
not sure about the dark side, but i do like the paycheck side... i had little choice in the matter... louis signs on and consols me from time to time - tells me there will be brighter cf days ahead lol
i didn't realize how much cf was doing for me... the framework does a lot of the 'dirty work' - just connecting to an oracle backend is a nightmare in itself in php. connecting/manipulating to a ldap backend was just as much fun too.
i miss <cfldap and <cfquery Smile
i hope you're doing well - drop me a line sometime and catch me up Smile

Sorry, I was just teasing you - you had mentioned your work was switching over - I guess since your web space is through your work you had not choice Frown  - yeah one HUGE plus when it comes to using cf is the amount of time and trouble it saves the developer, and time = $$ I guess switching over to php insured their developers more hours  ;P ~megan

hey hey hey! Yes the word on the street is true, I have resurrected cfnuke and hope to move it into the current century Smile  I have some ideas for it and I have some new code. After reviewing the old code I am sitting on the fence on weather I toss the old code or not. If anyone would like work on it with me let me know. Also I posted a few polls looking for feedback on the future of cfnuke so please comment and vote.

Thanks All!

lol... i guess they made a business decision, but honestly i think they were looking more in the area of innovation. more opensource is written in php/mysql and unfortunately vb/c#.net. cf rocks for writing your own apps (for speed/reliability), but the nature of the project (cost/retail oriented as a product) keeps it out of the hands of 'everyone'.  i keep hoping things like the smith project, bluedragon, etc will open this up to the opensource side of the population. the only thing is that once you start down the scripting trail it's hard to go back... it's sort of like selling your coding soul (bad example but it's accurate).
when someone needs something in a hurry that looks great - i use coldfusion still.  if they need something that can be mashed up with another opensource service i hurt myself if i don't use php/javascript (yeah... had to finally buckle down and pick a library and start using it [picked jQuery] - i know CHip will want to know lol).
@megan  i was proud to see your  name on the contributor/credit list at the cfnuke site - too cool. nice to get your props - especially as helpful as you are to everyone and never seeking any attention. good for you!
ok - enough venting - have a good weekend,
