Hello,

In my ColdFusion application, even though I am using cookies, the CFID and CFTOKEN information is not part of the URL, which is great because I am not interested in using URL rewriting.

However, at some places, CFID and CFTOKEN info shows up in the URL string. I believe it happens after I use the CFLocation tag for redirection. Please help, how can I hide it even there.

Thanks!

The key part in anand's post is the addtoken="no"

The default for cflocation is addtoken="yes" so if you don't specify it will add the CFID and CFTOKEN into the URL anytime you do a cflocation.
