Cannot find CFML template for custom tag SELECTDATE

Aug 16, 2010 10:58 AM

Hi,

 

I am not a ColdFusion developer and just moved a site from one server to another. That site is developed by someone else not me and I just moved the site to ColdFusion server. Site is working fine except a few pages where I am getting this error:

 

Cannot find CFML template for custom tag SELECTDATE

 

I read a little bit about custom tags. These are files that needs to be placed in a certain folder from where ColdFusion reads them.

So that means I will need to ask the developer who developed this site to provide me with this custom tag file, which when I will place in appropriate folder, this page will start working? And without that file I cannot do anything about it?

 

Thanks

    I presume the site was working fine before you moved it?  In which case all you need to do is to check the initial server's custom tag paths (in CF Administrator), and make sure you have replicated those settings on the new server,  as well as copy any additional files as required.

    Identifying a custom tag file is hard because it is simply just another .cfm file.  If they are not in a designated place, you almost have to open every file and hope for some documentation.

    As Dan says, they're just CFM files.  Usually one can identify them as follows:

    * they're in the same directory as a file calling <cf_somefilename[...]>, wherein there is a somefilename.cfm is the name of the file

    * they're in one of the directories set as custom tag directories (in CFAdmin, or Application.cfc)

    * they have references to "thistag" or the attributes scope in them (although the latter can produce false positives on Fusebox sites)

     

    By the sounds of it, your issue is - like I said before - you haven't got your custom tag dirs set up in CFAdmin (or in Application.cfc, which I didn't mention before).  Investigate that.
