Coldfusion and Blogs

cookmyster used Ask the Experts™

I want to incorporate a blog into my coldfusion website.   So here is the background...  I bought a template.. it was obviously built for wordpress and then they converted into html template.  I am changing that into coldfusion website.   There was a few pages built for a blog..  but obvisouly no coding for comments are anything.  Just wondering if there is any out of box coldfusion blogs that I can incorporate into my website...

I found ben forta site has a blog.. that is built in coldfusion but acts like wordpress...

Any help would be much appreciated.

I looked into the cf blog options a couple years ago, two or three different implementations, we went with wp.

it is easy to run them side by side, and have the same look/feel through skinning.

why do you need it in CF vs php?


My whole site is built in CF... and I really want to integrate into the site and have the same look and feel...  I don't want the blog to look any different.    So I figured the best way was to see if there was a cf blog I could integrate into my site
