Mura CMS content truncated

Pulling your hair out trying to figure out why your long content on a Mura CMS page is being truncated? There is a good chance that your datasource in the Coldfusion Administrator has too small of a value for the long text buffer (chr) setting.

Alone at Sea

One of my favorite photos from our recent San Juan Islands bicycle tour. Overcast with mixed sun created interesting light and the mountains in the distance created depth. Shot with a 5D Mark III and the  EF 28-135mm 1:3.5-5.6 IS lens. I also used a Hoya PL-CR 72mm  circular polarizing filter. Click through to see the image.

Fall Riding

The mountain biking season is quickly coming to an end. At least for me, others may ride later into the season, but I know I will probably one get a handful of rides in before it becomes cold and snowy. The days become too short to fit in rides after work and other obligations end up taking almost all of my weekend time. I was glad to get a ride in today under almost perfect conditions.

AWS support interaction surprise!

I'll admit it. I made a mistake. I went to purchase a reserved instance from Amazon Web Services and accidentally added a quantity of 2 instead of 1. As I clicked the button to confirm the purchase, I realized my mistake a moment too late. I just agreed to an upfront fee as well as a monthly fee for the next year for a web instance that I did not need.

Adding the release date to a Mura CMS content

Do you have a section in your Mura CMS site for blog posts of press releases that you would like to display the release date at the top of each page? There are a couple of ways that this could be accomplished. You could create a component that uses the Mura tag to display the release date, $.content('releaseDate'), and then include it into the content body of each page using the mura tag within the editor. Or, you could use the onPageBodyRender event and your theme or site eventHandler to do the work for you.

What a night!

Cool temperatures in the 70's. Blue skies with a few clouds to add interest. Not a single bit of forest fire smoke to be inhaled. Everything was perfect for mountain bike riding at Blue Mountain Recreation Area this evening. The views on the way to Hayes Point and then later on Picnic Point were some of the best that I have ever witnessed. An excellent night all around and no flat tires!
