Hi All;

Please can anybody tell me how I can do the following:
- Prevent a user press the button 'back' in the browser in order he can't see the previous page or pages anymore.

- or at least, close the current window and open a new window without history when a user press a link...

Thanks...:)

You can't prevent a person using their back button to go back to the prior page. You can stop pages being loaded into history by loading the replacement page using a Javascript location.href.replace() call.

How not to win return visitors.
Why would you even want to fukup the visitor's browsing session like that?
