Adding CFAkismet to BlogCFC

Adding CFAkismet to BlogCFC

The other day I posted about some mods I made to BlogCFC. A few people have asked me to share the code so I thought I'd walk through the changes in a couple of blog posts. For this post I'm going to show how I added Brandon Harper's CFAkismet to my BlogCFC installation.

This post is going to assume you are making the changes to the default download of BlogCFC 5.9.

Note: To make applying this mod a little easier I've posted a .zip with diffs of all the files I modified. (Click the download link at the bottom of the post to get files.)

OT: What to do in Sydney/Melbourne

My wife has to travel to Australia next month for business so we though it would be a good idea for my daughter and I to tag along. Knowing I have a few Australian readers (and more who have visited I'm sure) I thought I'd ask for suggestions of kid friendly things to do in both Sydney and Melbourne. We will be in Sydney for three full days, staying in The Rocks, and Melbourne for two full days. We are looking for things to do, places to eat, etc. all with a 1 year old. And we still need to find a hotel in Melbourne, so any suggestions of places to stay would be much appreciated.

Blog Updated

Comment spam sucks. I have had captcha enabled for a while now to try to prevent it, but I've started getting anywhere from five to ten spam comments a week. I had been running version 5.5 of BlogCFC which doesn't have the comment moderation feature, so in an attempt to ward off this scourge I updated my BlogCFC installation. Now, I don't really want to enable comment moderation so I decided to integrate Brandon Harper's CFAkismet component. It turned out to be a pretty straight forward mod and I'm pretty happy with the results so far. Any comment that the Akismet service labels as spam now gets sent to my Moderate Comments queue. At this point if I approve the comment it gets sent to the Akismet service as ham.

Troubleshooting ColdFire

A few people have reported that they are unable to see debugging in the ColdFire Firebug panel. I've been unable to reproduce these issues so I thought I put together a quick post on how ColdFire works in hopes that it may help people debug their issues.
