Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 126.96.36.199
I am looking for some sort of a redirect that will not allow the user to go back.
Lets say the user clicks a banner on Domain1.com
I want that banner to go through a redirect and land on Domain2.com
If the user hits back I want them to not go back to domain1.com. I want to either push them back to domain2.com or send them to a completely different domain; domain3.com
How can I accomplish this?
So you would set up a redirect page that your banners post to. Then when users click a banner from Domain1.com... that will result in a post to your redirect page make sure you pass in values came_from and going_to, in this case "came_from=Domain1.com" and "going_to=Domain2.com"
When the request comes into the redirect page simply check the going_to page and force a redirect from this page to the going_to page.
If the user hits back it will repost the form data and they will get redirected back to Domain2.com
If you want to do a redirect to Domain3.com if they hit back then just add in code that checks to see if came_from equals the referrer.... if they hit back it won't and you can redirect to Domain3.com

If not, then gs1md is right. Do not mess with browser functions such as the back button or no one will be coming back.
