I created a login form (see below).
If I use the regular HTML form and form fields for the username, password and submit button I don't get any problem viewing my form
But if I use cfform and cfinput form fields I get this error.
Here is my cfform codes:
cfform name="login" action="/login/checkLogin.cfm" method="post">
  cfinput type="text" name="username" size="25" required="Yes" message="Please enter your username">
  cfinput type="password" name="password" size="25" required="Yes" message="Please enter you password">
   cfinput type="submit" value="Sign In">
/cfform>

When I launch this page I get this error and I don't understand what this means and what am I supposed to do, please help!

I finally got the answer, partially, enough for me to view my form but still have some part that I don't get it completely. The error was caused by my cfinput type="submit" where there was no name attribute on it. Soon after I added the name attribute I can view my form: cfinput type="submit" name="submitform" value="Sign In"> The reason I got the weird and unfamiliar error was due to secure_profile_error.cfm setting in the CFAdmin>Setting>Site-wide error handler. In my cfadmin the value listed was: /CFIDE/administrator/templates/secure_profile_error.cfm I think this is to prevent CFadmin from showing the regular error message with line number. Soon after I change the value to nothing, and ran my login form, I can see the error message pointed to my cfinput that did not have a name attribute at line number. Up to this point I understand why that error showed up and was able to make the correction to my code. What I'm still not clear is how to make a use of secure_profile_error.cfm that is set in site-wide error handler under the setting? can anyone help with example? thank you

Using cfform

To start with, leave cfform aside. You will find in the documentation that most developers are abandoning Coldfusion's native UI tags, for example, cfform, cfgrid, and so on. They are outdated and occasionally perform erratically. If you wish to validate forms, use a Javascript library such as jQuery.

Implementing Site-Wide Error Handler

By default, there is no site-wide error handler configured. It is advisable to create your own. Then register the path of the page in the Coldfusion Administrator.

As the name implies, it is a CFM page which ColdFusion runs when it encounters an error on your site. Creating your own enables you to present a simple, customized, user-friendly page to your visitors.

Alternatively, you may choose to implement a Secure Profile. This is available in the Administrator, on the page Security => Secure Profile.

When you check the box, you configure Coldfusion to automatically implement all the security measures listed in the table. That includes Coldfusion's own the Site-Wide Error Handler. It is the system file, /CFIDE/administrator/templates/secure_profile_error.cfm.
