    The basics of ColdFusion are very easy to learn. And *basics* are what you are looking for, it sounds like. Now, it can take much much longer to be a ColdFusion expert but I don't think you need to worry about that. And yes, I would venture to say CF is easier to learn (for non-programmers) than any other comparable web development language out there. On the other hand, take a look around someplace like hotscripts.com. There may be something already written in PHP, ASP, JS, or whatever language that you can just install and use without ever having to learn anything. Your server also needs to be able to support whatever you choose, whether it is a ColdFusion script or ASP or PHP or whatever. Make sure about that before you make your choice.

    it all depends on your skill level right now. PHP is certainly the most popular right now and the easiest to find compatible hosting for. And there are tons of free PHP scripts out there. But if you have never programmed before then it will be harder to learn than ColdFusion is. Just all depends on your level really.

    Lightbulb CFM


    I have developed applications in PHP for about the last 2 years. I have also used some Cold Fusion. Cold Fusion is much eaiser to learn, very similar to html. I have developed an application that will allow you to output code in either- seo-cms.com

    Which is an easy transition with working with MYSQL, PHP or Cold Fusion.
