    Problem with white space

    ACS LLC Level 1

      I am trying to remove all the white space created in the HTML by CF processes. I did have this working ok with

       

      <cfsetting enablecfoutputonly="true">

       

      But now I'm noticing it's not longer working, I know I saw it working!

       

      I'm outputting a string to the HTML, such as ABCDEFG, I don't want any white space from the queries above it, and yet I'm getting a significant amount of white space/line breaks.

       

      I also tried <cfsetting enablecfoutputonly="true"> but this did not do the trick

       

      The only way is to set the CFadmin to supress white space, but that's fine on local dev, however I use a shared server where I can't control the CFadmin settings and it's not switched on

       

      Appreciate any help

       

      Thanks

          Other things you can use are <cfsilent>, <cfprocessingdirective> and making sure all your functions are specifically set to output="false".

           

          Custom tags are particularly bad at generating output, so it's vital to put <cfsilent> around as much of the tag code as possible.

           

          What do your hosting providers have against switching whitespace management as a matter of course, anyhow?
