<cfoutput>
<cfhttp
url="http://affiliators.biz/index.php?SP=1&afid=153864&msg=#URLEncodedFormat(ReportLine)#">

However the people who did this for me can no loinger support me and it stopped woring
I dont want to get too deep technically. Is there a quick and easy way to post from coldfusion - need to login to twitter etc

Thanks

Looks like I just posted something to twitter using your link

twitted
thisisatest
to housecarers

I hope that "housecarers" doesn't mind my tweet !

My first test failed because I didn't replace the variable... so perhaps it has to do with the value of ReportLine - have you tried a variety of different values to tweet to see what works and doesn't work?

I haven't used it but you could look at http://monkehtweet.riaforge.org/ It's an active project so it probably takes into account the latest oauth changes twitter has made.

I downloaded this thanks and followed the steps to create an application in twitter
I changed the function below as per notes.  And uploaded the folders to my root directory

However there are not more instructions. How do I write to twitter?  
<cffunction name="OnApplicationStart" 
access="public" 
returntype="boolean" 
output="false">
	<cfscript>
	application.objMonkehTweet = 
createObject('component',
		'com.coldfumonkeh.monkehTweet')
		.init(
		consumerKey		= 'bla bla bla',
		consumerSecret	= 'BLA BLA BLA',
		oauthToken		= 'bla bla bla',
		oauthTokenSecret	= 'BLAblaBLA',
		userAccountName	= 'housecarers',
		parseResults		= true
		);
		return true;
	</cfscript>
</cffunction>
