    On my website at SolidRockFaith.com I have one page that can be accessed from a number of other pages. Now I want to create a back button that takes the visitor back to the previous page. So how do you do that when the previous page can be one out of five referring pages?
    A HREF=" refering page"
    Basically it needs to work like a browser's back button.
    Thanks for your help in advance.

    You'd be better off just putting a list of your pages on the bottom of each page and letting them hit the back button on their browser otherwise.

    To do that you would need this code :
    after the
    a href=
    put in:
    "javascript:history.go(-1)"


    As you can see this is a simple bit of javascript. What this simply says is that by clicking on this link, the user will be directed to the last page in their history, which is, whatever page they were at before the current page, aka the referring page. Incidentally, you could replace the -1 w/ -2, -3, etc. and it would jump you back that many pages in the history.
