To have the current date displayed on your pages you can use any of the dynamic languages that are available. Placing the coding within Fusion is accomplished in exactly the same way regardless of whether you are using ASP, PHP, ColdFusion, or JavaScript.

Step 1:

Double click within the text box or table cell where you wish the date to appear to enter edit mode

Step 2:

Press CTRL + T to bring up the HTML dialogue box

HTML-insert the CF-date code

Step 3:

Paste the following code within the HTML insertion dialogue box input area

<cfoutput>#LSDateFormat(Now(), "mmmm d, yyyy")#</cfoutput>

This will produce a date formatted like: June 18, 2024

Date formatting in ColdFusion is very straight forward

mm dd, yy will display as: 06 18, 24
mmm ddd, yyyy will display as: Jun 18, 2024
m/d/yy will display as:  6/18/24
