Hi guys. I'm still a newbie with ajax and I have a problem that I guess has a standard solution that I don't know.

Here is the situation.
I have my ajax navigation from page to page and I use jQuery and a POST method to send the information to a PHP script. And that works fine. The problem comes when I refresh a page or press the back button on the browser. If I refresh it sends me to my defoult page where I load the PHP scripts and if I press back it goes to the previous website I visited not the previous page I opened in my website.

What is the way to fix the problem. And can you give me some kind of a guide line for Ajax based architectures.

If you are using jquery, there's a cookie plugin that is very easy to use:
