You can.

on top of the page add this code

<script>
window.history. forward(0);
</script>

and see the magic.

That's not magic, that is stupid.

And just how do you think that disables the back/forward buttons created
on a page? All your little "gimmick" does is prevent people from using
the back button to get back to your page. It does nothing to tell you
anything about the history trail, which you would need to know in order
to determine whether to show a back/forward button on your page.

Is there any way to disable the client browser "Back" and "Forward" buttons while on my site? Or how would I go about knowing that a page hit is caused by a back/forward navigation? I have discovered that my web app is definately NOT Back/Forward safe. It's really messing with my SQL data bigtime. Thanks.
