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
