Problems using anchors with cflocation.

I'm trying to use a cflocation tag to point the user to an anchor on another page.

I'm using the cflocation tag like so.

<cflocation url="profile.cfm##lifestyle">

(Lifestyle is the name of the anchor. Double pounds signs are needed in this tag so as not to confuse CF and correctly generates only one pound sign.)

However, when it actually outputs to the page I end up with this:


This doesn't work in IE6.

I've done a little testing and this works fine:


This also works fine:


Is there some way to get cflocation to put my anchor at the end of the string after all the CFID & CFTOKEN info?  Is there another way to do this?

I really don't know if this is correct but just try it :

<cflocation url="#UrlSessionFormat("profile.cfm")###lifestyle">
Yes, what you'll need to do is to set the AddToken attribute to the CFLOCATION tag to be false, and then ass the CFID, CFOTKEN and JSESSIONID variables by hand. Something (but not exactly) like so:

<cflocation url="profile.cfm?CFIDE=#Client.CFID#&CFTOKEN=#Client.CFTOKEN#&jsessionid=#Client.jsessionid###lifestyle" addToken="False">

The documentation says that jsessionid is referred to as Session.jsessionid, but the general idea was right.

I wasn't so sure where the JSessionID came from, so I just guessed. I should have noted that, but I'm glad you figured it out.
