Make sure also that both pages have session_start(); on them so that sessions continue. I have used sessions and forms and basically I have the engines that process forms on different pages, and when the forms are submitted, the engine pages display a message and a link to the previous page, you might want to do this instead of haven people press the back button.

If you use the POST method for forms, then the page will expire if you don't resubmit the values. You can also read that in the text. You cannot change this behaviour, because your browser does this for you. To force the browser to resubmit the values, you have to push the Refresh button. You won't get this behaviour if the form is submitted with the GET method, because the variables are then part of the URL (and thus automatically submitted if you push the back button) HTH Erwin -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php ______________________________________________________________________ Post your free ad now! http://personals.yahoo.ca -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
