    Javascript History Go Back

    Hi all,

    I'm attempting to use the javascript 'history.go(-1);' to make a page automatically return to the last page a user visited. At the moment, I can get this to work ONLY if I insert a link into the page.

    What I want to happen is, the page autmatically sends the user back to the previous page after a set time.

    I have this for my JS:

    function backtomusic() {
    window.location = history.go(-1);
    }

    And in the body section of my page I have:

    <body onLoad="setTimeout('backtomusic()', 3000)">

    When it runs I get an error saying 'undefined' in the browser address bar

    Any ideas?
