I`d like to insert back and forward buttons in my pages in Dreamweaver. For this I`ve made arrow signs in gif.
The Help manual with DW doesn`t seem to contain the advice I need. Could someone point me in the right direction? (preferably in wysywyg mode). Thanks

Welcome to WebmasterWorld Ian_Swarbrick!

What are you going back and forward to? I'm not familiar with the specific workings of DW, but it sounds like you just need to make the arrow images into links and then point the links to the pages you want.

Are you looking to go "back" and "forward" according to pages that the visitor has already seen (similar to the browsers back & forward buttons)? Or do you have a list of products (for example) that you want the user to be able to browse through with the back & forward buttons?

Back button code:

<input type=button value="Back" onClick="history.go(-1)">

Forward button code:

<input type=button value="Forward" onCLick="history.forward()">
