Back button and session variables

2012-01-15  Source: Original Site  Category:PHP  Views:0 


I have a series of pages that use session variables. Every time the first page in the series is loaded, the session variables are destroyed using the following code:


Recently I learned that 2 users are having trouble with the site. One is using IE6 with XP. The other is using IE6 with Windows 98. When they click the browser's Back button and return to the first page in the series, the first page is apparently never reloaded and the variables are not destroyed.

I've tested the site using PCs with 98, and XP that had IE6 and have not been able to duplicate the problem. Each time I click the Back button, the session is destroyed and the pages work fine.

Any ideas?
