View Full Version : Is a "Back" button possible ?

08-07-2009, 12:55 AM
I would like to place a button on most of my pages simply titled "Back"

I would like this button to take you back to whatever page you came from on my website.

I assume it's possible.

Does anyone know how I could achieve this ?

with javascript
<input name="button" type="button"
onclick="javascript: history.go(-1)" value="Back " />

Many Thanks I will give that a go.

Who the hell am I kidding !

I have no idea what that means.

(I did give it a go, honest.)

Is there a tutorial anywhere that will explain how to do it that a five year old could understand ?

Thankyou for your patience.

this will show back but you can replace that with an image
<a href="#"
onclick="javascript: history.go(-1)" />back</a>
hope thats clearer
