Hi!
Just wondering if anybody knows how to make the browsers back button "turn dead/off/not working"? For IE, netscape?

You can use some java script to do that but you cannot disable it completely as users still can right click and get the back button this way

You can put onUnload="history.forward()" in the body tag or use it like it is here:
kill back button
Nasty trick, but it usually works..

maybe this topic should be its own forum... if the google search dissuades people, at least they could just click on the 'back button' forum..

With a little knowledge, a cast iron skillet is non-stick and lasts a lifetime.
