Web Process Element

The Web Process Element allows the user to include within a designated region of the page, other Web pages, or scripts that are written in CGI, ASP, or non-ColdFusion applications.

The Web Process Element renders the results of a specified URL, automatically stripping out the <head></head> section of the page and grabbing the contents within the <body></body> tags. You can specify an update schedule to control how often the specified URL is invoked and results captured for display.

This Element allows content contributors to grab the results of a URL on a scheduled basis and display it within the context of their own site. This can be very powerful, but also has many limitations. Some limitations, for example, include:

Links within the results may not work or may navigate the user outside of the site.

URLs with complicated or conflicting JavaScript and style sheets may break.

If a background image or color is specified for the page, it is converted to the background image and color for the table cell in which the Element is rendered.
