Hi list,
        Don't you just hate the way that the POST method makes browsers
act some times? Expiring pages and asking you if you really want to
reload this page. I have found a solution. Instead of relying on the
POST method to protect pages from being accessed twice, I use GET and at
the end of a processing script using <? header("Location:
next_page.html") ?> redirecting the client to the desired url. So when
the client tries to go back and forth accessing pages with their
browser, the processing page is virtually replaced with the url
"next_page.html", thus stopping an additional posts. Hope this is


/* Processing script */

        /* Delete something with the database */
        mysql("database", "delete from table where id = $id");

        header("Location: next_page.html");
