Why are people still using that coding method?

I was thinking the same thing. I think it's still around just because people like saying coldfusion.

Well I started this mod waay back(well 1.5 years at most.....) with phpBB, when I noticed it was already there and I did not have the time to finish my project at all.
But I now started creating a BLOG mod, which lets an administrator allow groups or users to make their own blog.
It still is in very early stages and I have not yet completed my feature list of what will be on it neither do I know if I will ever finish it... as I sometimes do projects learn from them and then just abandom them...

With Olympus nearly at an RC Stage, maybe we could put a thread together showing current mods being worked on. The reason I say this is I myself have started to write a mod simliar to paulus, theres no point if someone has already done one :), just a thought.

Because Coldfusion is still a great coding method. Its so much easier to do any database work in Coldfusion than it is in PHP, or any other method......

what's hard about doing database work with php?
php also doesn't slow down your server to a crawl.

I have a friend that used to use coldfusion all the time and now he's moving everything over to php because the coldfusion is soo slow.

IIRC that feature is also planned for 3.2 but nice to know someone is doing it for 3.0 :)

Coldfusion isn't slower than PHP, just depends on the coding.
