Chapter 8. Using ColdFusion > Working with Templates

Working with Templates

Back in Chapter 4, “Previewing ColdFusion,” I walked you through creating several simple applications. ColdFusion applications are made up of one or more files, each with a .cfm extension. These files often are referred to as templates; you'll see the terms templates, files, and even pages used somewhat interchangeably. Just so you know, they all refer to the same thing. I'll explain why the term templates is used in a few moments.

Note

As explained in Chapter 3, “Accessing the ColdFusion Administrator,” the URL used with ColdFusion will vary based on whether or not an external Web server is being used. For the sake of simplicity, all URLs used in this and future chapters assume that ColdFusion is being used in conjunction with the integrated Web server (“standalone” mode). As such, you'll see the port address :8500 specified in all URLs (both in the content and the figures). If you are not using the integrated Web server simply omit the :8500 from any URLs.
