Grabbing Cookies for PHP?

Jun 20, 2012 6:59 AM

I'm still some what a beginner with CF so take it easy on me. I currently have a web site that uses MyBB as a forum. My homepage/portal is programmed in coldfusion. Currerntly it is gathering post information so it shows latest posts and comments. I want users to be able to login here as well and then it redirect back to the homepage/portal. The login script works flawlessly, however, once someone logs in I want to be able to retrieve the cookies from myBB and then output the current user's username, userid, email, ect.


How would I retrieve the cookies information and then output the information with coldfusion?

    You can display any cookie in ColdFusion like this:






    If you want to see all the cookie names you can do this:


    <cfdump var="#cookie#">


    Hope that helps.

    I also agreed with Peter Freitag.  For outputing the cookie's information  in cf code, use <cfoutput> tag. The syntax is




    For see the cookie name for the revision <cfdump> tag is used in the code.Syntax is


    <cfdump var="#cookiename#">
