go back to previous page

When users are within the menu and want to go back to a previous page, they end up back at the home page, even if they were on another page within the site. Is there a way for users to go back to the previous page. Our users are frustrated by always having to start over at the home page. I saw a post in the version 3 section that said to use this code:

[code]<a href="javascript:history.back();">[/code]

But I don't know where to put it or if this will work.
thanks
Elaine

Try this:
Code:
aI("text=Back;url=javascript:history.go(-1);");
aI("text=Next;url=javascript:history.go(+1); ");

I'm a little confused. Are you saying that the browser's "Back" button isn't working??? (That would be disturbing!) Or are you trying to implement your own "Back" button using the menus, and that isn't working?

Ruth's suggestion should work for a menu implementation of "Back". history.go(-1) is the equivalent to history.back(), and history.go(1) is the equivalent to history.forward(). So, you could also use
Code:
aI("text=Back;url=javascript:history.back();");
aI("text=Next;url=javascript:history.forward();");


Cheers,

Kevin
