Help with Back button

P: 1
Hi all,

I have a site it goes like this

Front Page Add to cart button ->
Page with an onload auto-submit form through JS ->
View Cart

When they click the back button from view cart, it brings them back to the auto-submit form which in turn brings them back to the View Cart page with another item added because the form is submitted again.

I have to do it this way to convert an <a href with a ?str to a post form.

I am using PHP 5 =)

Any ideas you all have would be excellent =)

Light and Love and Healing Peace Propserity JOy and Abundance to you all,
-Patrick Arden McNally

Hi Patrick, welcome to TSDN!

Try using a post-redirect model, i.e. once the form is posted, it is redirected, so when the user presses back they avoid a double post. It will also avoid the popup that asks for confirmation about posting again.
