Folks, I've written a simple, multi-page Rails app which works fine except for one thing: often when my users click the browsers BACK button, they receive the "Warning: Page has Expired" message in IE, with the suggestion to hit the refresh button. If they do hit refresh, they are told that the information will be sent back to the page, and they have to hit "Retry" to proceed. I have no idea where to begin looking for this problem. Any ideas? Is there a timeout parameter somewhere...? Thanks, Marcus

This is normal if the previous page was the result of a submitted form.

One way around this is to create a back link that instead of actually going back instead recreates the previous page (with whatever was entered into the form before, prefilled). Hope that helps, Mathias.
