I have this: <a href="/#getSetting('defaultPage')#">Home</a>Yields / index.cfm with a space.If I change it to this: <a href="#getSetting('defaultPage')#">Home</a>I get index.cfm without a space.Also, if I use this: <a href="/#variables.settings.defaultPage#">Home</a>I get /index.cfm without a space.It seems to be the combination of the / with the function call that generates the space in front of it. I have verified that #getSetting('defaultPage')# gives me index.cfm without a space.

I can supply code which generates the example.

[vmannebo 11/11/2009] Adding a reproducible case:

1) create a folder called bugs/80408 under webroot
2) place main.cfm and _80408.cfm under /bugs/80408/

<cfoutput><a href="#getSetting('_80408.cfm')#" target="blank">Link 1</a></cfoutput><br>
<cfoutput><a href="/#getSetting('bugs/80408/_80408.cfm')#" target="blank">Link 2</a></cfoutput>

<cffunction name="getSetting">
	<cfargument name="defaultpage">
	<cfreturn defaultpage>

This is a test page

/ index.cfm not found.

Hi Adobe, This is NOT fixed in any of:, 2016.0.01.298513, 2018.0.0.310739. Ticket needs changed back to ToFix, and removed from CF2016's Issues Fixed list: The repro in the description still generates whitespace, breaking the hyperlink. Another repro is this: Application.cfc ----------- component { = "ticket_3040322";} ----------- index.cfm ----------- <cfoutput>|#myFunction('myString')#|</cfoutput> <cffunction name="myFunction"> <cfreturn ARGUMENTS[1]></cffunction> ----------- mypage.cfm ----------- This is a test page ----------- Specifically, the newline before the <cfreturn> adds the whitespace. Of course, setting output="false" on <cffunction> also resolves the issue. But, if you're saying the issue described in the description is fixed, that is wrong b/c it is not. Thanks!, -Aaron

To clarify, <cfoutput>|#myFunction('myString')#|</cfoutput> displays | myString| instead of |myString|. Thanks!, -Aaron

LOL, the mypage.cfm isn't even relevant in my example and can be ignored ;)

As per our documentation, the behavior is as designed. It says - |output|Optional|Function body is processed as standard CFML|Specifies under which conditions the function can generate HTML output. The following values are valid: ·         yes: the entire function body is processed as if it were in a cfoutput tag. Variables names surrounded by number signs (#) are automatically replaced with their values. ·         no: the function is processed as if it were within a cfsilent tag. If you do not specify this attribute, the function body is processed as standard CFML. Any variables must be in cfoutput tags.| So, entire body of cffunction is processed like cfoutput tag. That's why all /n /r characters are also written to output. In the testcase mentioned, function is returning the value correctly and all the body of function is written to html output which looks like space when rendered in the browser. []
