ColdFusion Custom Tag Paths

Custom tags can work exclusively within a website. However, ColdFusion requires a custom tag mapping which can be added by logging into the Control Center.

Create a folder within the website where the custom tags will be stored. A common name for this folder is "customtags." Once you have created this folder, log into the Control Center at
and go the menu item SITE and then to COLD FUSION OPTIONS. Select CUSTOM TAG PATHS and click ADD. Next, navigate to the custom tags directory and click SAVE.

Try to name the custom tag itself so that it is unique to your website. Cold Fusion has a difficult time making a distinction between custom tags in separate websites if they have the same name. If you have the same custom tag name as someone else, you may see an unfamiliar path in a ColdFusion error.
