SSL certification issue with wikidocs link

September 29, 2015 / Jacob Jayakar Royal

As most of you are already aware, the Wikidocs documentation of ColdFusion has been moved to a new location:

When you access the Wikidocs site using http, it redirects you to the new site. However, if you bookmarked the https Wikidocs URL ( and try to hit the link, you get a message similar to "Your connection is not privateor “This connection is not trusted”. In such cases, depending on the browser you use, follow the instructions (provided for couple of browsers as of now) as below:

On Firefox browser

1. When you access the https URL, a pop-up dialog appears as shown below. Click I understand the Risks and click Add Exception.


2. Add Security Exception dialog appears. Click Confirm Security Exception as shown in the dialog below to start accessing new location URL



On Google Chrome browser

1. When you access the https URL, a pop-up dialog appears as shown below. Click Advanced.


2. Click Proceed to in the following dialog to start accessing the new location URL.



ColdFusion 9/10 Charting in Cluster

September 29, 2015 / Krishna Reddy

If you have setup cluster and tried to use charting in ColdFusion 8/9/10, sometimes you would have received "Image Expired" message instead of showing the chart.

Charting engine runs into this problem for two reasons.

1. The scripts generated by the designer use indirect method for image retrieval, meaning that the image is
produced during page processing and is placed in cache to be retrieved by the browser.

After some period of time depending upon cache settings the image is destroyed. "Image Expired" message
tells you that the image requested by the browser is not in the server cache.

To fix this issue you might want
to change cache settings(webcharts3D.xml under cfusion\lib).


2) In some cases the reason is that one component is uesd to create the image, but another component is used to retrieve it.

In ColdFusion cluster's case exactly this is what it happens when sticky sessions are not enabled.

So, make sure that you enable sticky session so that the a particular request comes and is servered from the same server.

After enabling sticky session make sure to restart the web server and ColdFusion server.


Hope this is helpful.


ColdFusion documentation update

September 29, 2015 / Jacob Jayakar Royal

ColdFusion documentation goes live at 

For the last two years, we have had a wiki-based model for ColdFusion documentation, with some of the revered ColdFusion experts in the industry editing the documentation and helping us keep it fresh and up-to-date. I am sure a large number of us have benefited from meaningful code samples and other documentation input that ColdFusion community experts shared. We would like to thank each of our ColdFusion community experts for their involvement and selfless commitment. We would like to specifically shout out a BIG THANK YOU to Adam Cameron, Aaron Neff, Charlie Arehart, and Raymond Camden.  Not to forget, Dave Ferguson, Carl Von Stetten, Adam Tuttle, Peter Freitag, Steve Blades, Matt Dyer, Kev McCabe, Sam Farmer, Andrew Myers, Matt Busche, Nicholas Tunney, Ryan Guill and Steven Neiland for the value add they have provided.

However, we have had several issues with the wiki service and implementation, causing us to look for a better solution. Owing to this, we are constrained to move away from the wiki model temporarily. Having said that, please rest assured that we are diligently working toward evaluating various options and we will partner with ColdFusion community experts to set the right collaborative authoring process.

In the meantime, we most certainly want to continue seeking the expertise of ColdFusion community experts in adding value to ColdFusion documentation. We request you to continue interacting with us through We will now closely monitor the forums threads and will update the documentation accordingly. You could also leave your feedback on every help page using the yellow ticker that says “Was this Helpful?”.  

comment ticker

We will review each comment that is posted using this ticker. You can also directly reach us at the email alias chl-cf@adobe.comWe are eager to continue our collaboration with you and hence we are making several means available for you to continue providing your valuable input.

We look forward to your continued support as we navigate through the temporary changes. Thank you once again for being so supportive of us in keeping ~4000 pages of ColdFusion documentation updated and useful to the community.
