I am on old classic asp developer and have been using/learning the server connect/app connect framework. First I am so impressed, great work. I have decided to commit to this framework for future development and want to start documenting best practices as I move forward. I have a couple of questions, some basic and I'm sure more to come. Some things I'm not sure on, and others I have always been doing one way but not sure it's the best. Thanks again for your product, it makes developing fun again!

1. What is the correct way to fire a Server Connect action on page load?
2. When setting variables to view a subset of pages (don't want to user URL param), Should I use a session var or set a cookie

Hello Ken,
In order to run a server action on page load, just add a server connect component in app connect tree, and select the server action you'd like to run
For sub pages i think using url params is just fine, but you could also use session vars.

Man, every time I think I am making progress, I ask a stupid question like that.

Thanks for your patience.
