Cookies is the simple answer.
PHP sessions could work a little better.

Well... that page doesn't seem to do anything. Just a checkbox. But then I refresh and it goes to another page. But no pages that would involved clicking back twice.
That is usually based on a redirect that jumps to the next page. Hitting back DOES go back, but only to the redirect page. Hitting back twice gets you to the page before the redirect. Not sure exactly how to avoid that since there are security limitations based on changing the history. The type of redirect can affect whether it's stored in the history or not... I think that using a meta tag and/or http location header may not make it appear in the history.

Simple solution:

It looks like you are using a copy and paste javascript to do the redirect. What you want to do is modify that code.

Near the end of the javascript, find the line that reads:

window.location.href = url;

Change this to:


This will replace the browser's history entry with the proper page to redirect to. The redirect page will not be in the history anymore, so you wont see it upon clicking back.
