    I am fairly new to Sitefinity and wondering if it was possible to embed an existing Coldfusion form into a Sitefinity page or content block?

    Hi,

    The difference in the architecture Coldfusion and ASP.NET are the only limitation that proves to be problematic in this case. A way to migrate Coldfusion to ASP.NET is described here and it proves to be a lot of work. Another way is to use some of the specizlized software that is migrating coldfusion to asp automatically. We haven`t tested integrating coldfusion to Sitefinity because the approach is the same as creating a new asp.net controls based on the same controls created in another platform and this may prove to be much effort if the application is very big.

    What if we have no experience in ASP.net. What would you recommend we do first in having our coldfusion application migrated to the Sitefinity work environment? Thanks!

    Kenny, the best I can think of is to use a simple iframe. Remove all of the design wrapper from your coldfusion form, create a page in Sitefinity, and then drop your Coldfusion form in the iframe.
