Subject Re: Cocoon Portal and browser back button problems
Date Fri, 10 Feb 2006 09:13:01 GMT
Hi Angelo,

I had this trouble too. But i didn't solve it definitely.

My opinion :
- portal is not 100% ready for internet web site production because of 
this, since 99% of internet users use intensively using back and refresh 
buttons! (if you really insist on back and mostly refresh buttons i bet 
you'll find an exception quickly)
- It seems all the concept of events cause problem since the browser 
back button is not informing portal we want event no 4 on the last page 
we had, and thinks we need the event no 4 on the actual page.
- But this is open source, so up to us to arrange this problem, but i 
didn't feel competent for this.

In short to avoid probblems you have to avoid all portal events :
- PageLabel is the right solution for menus etc...
- Avoid transforming your anchors via portal-eventlink-transformer, but 
use systematically bookmarks.
- On the bookmark pipeline, use an internal redirect instead of external 
to also avoid the event.

I received most of these informations from the there : 

since you seem Italian i'm quite sure you can almost read that french.
