Modifying Canvas ColdFusion Wiki

Canvas is an excellent wiki written by Ray Camden. It has a vast number of features for creating/maintaining documentation of any sort. I have been playing with it for a bit but I still haven't taken advantage of all its features. However, it lacks some basic features I thought it needed. I have been working on a side project and as a side effect I have added a few essentials (in my opinion). In subsequent posts, I will attempt to explain how to modify Canvas and add the following features:

  1. Database user authentication
  2. Persist user sessions between visits - "Remember Me" functionality
  3. LDAP user authentication
  4. Integration with Google Analytics
  5. Contact form
  6. Better exception handling / notifications


  1. Hi Boyan,
    I am trying to modify Canvas ColdFusion Wiki too.
    I found this post and was really glad - you already done almost everything I need to modify in these! Do you mind if I ask you if you can share your modifications? It would really help me and will save some time too. I would really appreciate it.


  2. Tatiana,

    sure, I'll gladly do that since I was planning on it anyway. You just gave me an incentive to finish what I had started. Look for follow ups on this post or email me directly from my contact page.
