Thanks, but not what I needed
Thanks for your help and advice.
the fact is that I do have variables in the server side code to protect me (the web owner) from the user.
I am trying to avoid the situation where the user gets error messages saying that the page has already been submitted etc. For some reason this seems to freak them out and they think the site is broken!
If they just could not go back this would be best. Also when they exit the payment area (I use worldpay) and return to my site, I want to prevent them going back and paying again etc. Refunds take time and cost me money!
This is one time I wish all browsers worked like IE6. If I could get opera to emulate that history.forward() it would be great.
I know most people use IE but I don't want to be ever guilty of dumping those crusading few who dare to be different.
Does anyone know of a site that provides example code of how to make things work in opera? - Actually scrap that! I will post that as a new question.
But still if possible any more help on original question please.
They only tell you its a stupid question when they don't know the answer!
