to pass variables to the tag use:

<cf_tagname
ATTRIBUTES
test = 1,
test2 = 2
>

to retrieve attributes in the custom tag use:

#attributes.test#
#attributes.test2#

Sorry also if you wanna pass for emelents use:

<cf_embedfields>in between you <form> tags

then in cutom tag you can get them simply by calling their name like #username# or whatever the field name happens to be you need the value from.

reference to cfexperts comment to invoke custome tag
attributes is not required. no need to give comma between the atrributes variables.

to pass variables to the tag use:

<cf_tagname test = 1 test2 = 2>

is enough to call any cfm files with name tagname.cfm.

to retrive the value what he was explianed is correct
