Support back button


#1

There are a couple of links in the wiki about AJAX and the back
button, but seem to be broken.

I have a page with AJAXified tables and normal links. When the user
modifies some table, follows a normal link, and presses the back
button, the shown tables are the original ones (modifications are OK
in backend). Is there some standard solution to this?

Yeah, updating just a part of the page means that the browser still has
the same page in
the history… it’s one of the big problems with AJAX in general.

I haven’t read this completely, but this guy shows how he keeps the
history in javascript:

Might more work than you want to do though!
