RANT: border-collapse still doesn’t work in CFDOCUMENT (bug)
NOW THIS PISSES ME OFF!
As reported earlier, I’m running into crap left and right since HostMySite decided that all shared hosting plans would be upgraded to CF8 (there’s a reason why you wait a while before ungrading to the latest release). The calls just don’t stop and after my last bug report I’ve decided the hell with it and to just vent my frustrations here since Adobe obviously won’t do anything about it.
So here I am today trying to fix a CFDOCUMENT page that was working fine in CF7 and then in CF8 it broke. Now granted since it was the first time I used CFDOCUMENT when I created this page it wasn’t the greatest code, but it worked none the less. Since that time I’ve become great with CFDOCUMENT and I use it all the time. Thing is though you have to compensate for border-collapse not working under CF7.
Now I know that people have submitted bugs report numerous times to Adobe (then Macromedia) about this issue. You would think that with CF8 this issue would be fix, but no it isn’t. It’s still there and hasn’t been dealt with.
So in other words Adobe thought that it would be better to work on CFWINDOW, CFPOD or whatever other Ajax crap they could throw into CF instead of taking care of a bug that has litterally made using CFDOCUMENT useless for most people. Way to go guys in prioritizing development time. Maybe they will address this in CF9 in another 4 years.
How about this: in the next major release of CF, don’t add a F***ING thing. FIX the bugs.
