My users would like to have a button to send them back to their original search results after having moved through serveral pages forward. I have already tried using [ javascript:history.back(1)] and doesnt work very well; it doesnt send be back to the seach page. Does anybody have any suggestions on how I can resolve this problem? Thanks

You can pass the search criteria in hidden variables from the page where the search results are actually displayed,then you will have to pass these hiddens wherever they are needed to be retrieved.
Hope this helps!!Let me know for any more clarifications!!

Thanks anuradu, i see what you mean. Thanks for the input!
