    But is URL the only way

    Can't I pass the value via the field names including the `q?_` preceding  it?

    eg.   q?_myHiddenField 

     

    Also... what are these for? 

    They all seem funny when you have more than 1 hidden fields. 

    UNIQUE NAME

     }

    FIELD IDs

    #hidden_4
