    Is it possible to pass a hidden value through a meta-tag to another page using cold fusion?

    not that i know, of, why not just pass it via URL ? ..and if that is not possible, use server side data storage, manage sessions, etc, now THAT is fun ... (and i'm not being sarcastic, sessions are awesome)

    I'm not aware of any way to do that off a meta.

    The usual way to do it is to pump it across in the url, then grab it back on the subsequent page by parsing the url.

    The easiest ways are to pass the values through sessions, query string, cookies, hidden form fields. (In order of complexity)

    If you pass the information in a metatag, you have to parse the entire previous message in order to get the values out. This can add a lot of overhead to your pages, slow down processing and be inconsistant.
