Can it be done?

Not sure if this can be fixed with JS, but I've got visitors saving a dynamic page which has different urls (in date order) ie. page.cfm?startrow=1; page.cfm?startrow=20 etc.

They mean to save the startrow=1 page to revisit another day, but some are accidentally saving historic pages and not seeing the latest updates.

Can I put some JS code on all pages except the current one, to warn them not to save.

Thanks for any help.

(I guess I could test the referring url on each page and if its not my site, then redirect to the current page, but that seems a bit clumsy).

With Javascript I believe you can make an "Add bookmark" type of link that will add a bookmark... you could use an onmousedown ...alert script possibly?
