    Is it possible to get a shorter / different {id} tag?

    Asked by altontoth on November 08, 2010 at 11:00 AM

    Don't really need an 18 digit or whatever id tag, but maybe a 4 digit numeric, or alpha numeric would be awesome. Is there any way toset something like that up?

    Unfortunately no, there is no way to include a shorter ID as identifier.

    A possible solution might be to calculate the numbers on your site using javascript or server side scripting, and then pre-populate it into a hidden field on the form using the query strings.
