Hello Lee,

Congratulations on your success in google searches.

Your question I think refers to "anchors". Have a look at this tutorial and see if it fits:

thanks Peter - it is i guess an anchor of sorts. how would the tutroial mentioned apply to a back button? - i can see it working if i set up links to anchors but i'm trying to use a back button.
Also do you know how to add a url to the code in the example?

no, i'd already read that. Ok, this is what i want to replicate.

Your on a site and you scroll down the homepage and click a link, you dont like the page your on so you click back, instead of being taken back to the top of the home page you are taken to the point where you left from. Ebay lisitings are a good example of this from search results to item desciptions and back to the search results. thanks in advance.

Hi Lee,

I've found a reference to what I think is your need. I've never used it and it comes into the semantics of bad programming :)

I wish I had a tailored solution :(

I am not sure this will work for Synthasite.

thanks, html seems to be; the more you know the less you understand. I'll take a look over the article you linked above later - many thanks for your help.
