Back In Time


#1

On a system that I am working on, there are 2 places where you can edit
answers to questions. After editing, I need to redirect back to the
place where the user came from. A common problem I am sure, but I
couldn’t find any info on how other people had handled it.

I came up with a method called ‘redirect_back_in_time’ that redirects
you to a point in history.

I know the edit takes 2 pages to complete so to get back to where the
user started I know I need to redirect_back_in_time 3.

I wrote this up on my blog http://counterflo.ws and put the code up
there.

How does this solution compare to what you guys have done? Is this
better or worse?

Thanks

Gareth

I use the params hash rather than the request_uri, but it’s much the
same idea…
