jQuery and jQuery UI added to Mura CMS admin

We've switched the default javascript library for the Mura CMS admin to jQuery (from Prototype), including the availability of the jQueryUI library for plugin developers. This will be a huge productivity gain for plugin programming, and also provides a great foundation for future improvements to the Mura CMS admin functionality.

Integrating an Application without a Front-End Controller into Mura CMS

In the past, integrating third-party or existing applications into Mura has always been possible, but only if your application had a front end controller (e.g. written in FuseBox/Model Glue/Mach II/etc). Due to recent changes, it's it is now possible to integrate an existing ColdFusion/CFML application without a front-end controller into Mura CMS.

Mura Show - CArehart.org - Part 5

This week, we pick up with our conversion of CArehart.org by taking on Charlie's CF411 section of his site (www.cf411.com). Because of the comprehensiveness of this collection of ColdFusion and CFML resources, this should prove to be an interesting topic.

Current Event Hooks

Someone recently asked for a complete list of available events in Mura. We're currently trying to find time to write more detailed documentation that gives specific information about each event. However, until then I thought that I would at least post this list of currently available events to let explore.

The Coldspring Plugin and what it can do for you!

For a while now we have been keeping a nifty little plugin in plain site, yet hidden away. This is our Coldspring plugin. It's been living the lonely life within our Plugins & Events page just waiting for the day to get out and show the world what it can do. Well in this blog post we are going to give that opportunity.

New Plugin: Google Analytics

Just this last weekend I was working on a Mura project and needed to hook into Google Analytics to get some metrics. So l did what any normal red blooded developer would do. Create a new account with Google Analytics, copy the Analytics js code that Google provides you and paste it into my Mura template right above the </body> tag. Very simple.
