    CFHTTP with parameters

    ssailer Level 1
      How do you use CFHTTP with parameters to display dynamic data from a web site. In other words, the page that I want to display from an external web site will always show dynamic data. I cannot find any documentation on how to do this. Thanks!

          <CFHTTPParameter ...> Tags. Fairly well discussed under the
          <CFHTTP...>/<CFHTTPParameter...> sections of the CF documentation.

            The CF documentation for parameters and how to actually use them in a real world sense in a results list was pretty much crap. However, I figured it out on my own and it's working. Now ... next question. Can CFHTTP be used to display results from many different sites like the results list in http://www.indeed.com/ after you perform a search? HELP!!!

              Not with a single tag. But there is nothing, other then bandwidth and
              time, preventing you from using multiple <cfhttp...> tags each getting
              content for different URLs.
