    Back Button

    Active8 Level 1
      This is probably an easy one for all you DW supremo's out there but I have no idea how to create one?

      What I want to create is a seperate back button for my pages which simply returns the guest to the previously viewed page.

      I intend to use one of the Flash buttons already bundled into DW.

      As ever, all help greatly appreciated

          Google 'javascript back button'.

          But note that making your own back buttons is usually a bad idea.

          There's already a giant BACK button in their web browser. Why do you feel
          the need to repeat something that already works?

            And using Flash for a navigation element is also a very bad idea.
