    Getting a blank page while returning from page with form

    Hi,

    I've created a few pages using html.
    1. a page from which i get to to the page with the form
    1. a page which includes form
    2. a page with a form result (using php)

    if while filling the page with a form i decide to go back to the previous page, i get a blank window with the next message from internet explorer:

    "Warning: Page has Expired The page you requested was created using information you submitted in a form. This page is no longer available. As a security precaution, Internet Explorer does not automatically resubmit your information for you.

    To resubmit your information and view this Web page, click the Refresh button. "

    So i have to press a Rfresh button in the browser.
    Is there anything i can do to avoid seeing this page and getting directly to the previous one.

    Thanks in advance

    Not really. its (as it says) a security element within most browsers to prevent situations where shared machines are used to access email accounts, etc.

    You could try using GET instead of POST in the form. If memory serves me, this prevents this. However, been a while since I tested it so try out a test version (before recoding all your php!) and see if it helps.
