hi. i am using acts_as_ferret for my application. when i search for
something, and then click on the result, i have a back
button(javascript:history.back) that should take the user back the
listing page. however, i get the "Warning: Page has Expired". is there a
rails way to perform the back action? or is this just a IE issue

how about saving the last search as a session var, then have your
'back' button be a link to the search page, and pre-populate it with
the last search session var if it exists?

Jeff's solution is good, or you can try to redirect them to.


You'd be surprised what you can find in the request headers.
