Subject AW: AW: Disabling Back Button in IE
Date Wed, 22 Feb 2006 16:55:33 GMT
This problem is as old as the web browsers are, at the beginning browsers
and http were just there to display static pages, not for building
applications with it, so the back button was not a problem.
But you get serious problems with that when building applications.
But as Frank and Josh pointed, now matter what you do there is always a
posibility that you go back to the last page.

So my recommendation is also that you do a check on the server side, 
so e.g. when you press the "sumbmit order", delete the shopping cart in the
session, when the back button is prssed you realize the session shoping cart
is empty and issue a message "Your shooping cart is gone".
A pain, but no real way around it!
