Clear Text Field History?

Feb 19, 2010

I have a text field in which I'm supposed to enter the answer for the security question which is needed in case I forgot my password e.g (who is your best childhood friend?).. Now the problem is that when I enter a value in the first time, the second time I find a drop down box which contains my previous value, and of course this is a security breach. So isn't there someway to disable the history of this text field but besides it shouldn't repeat the same action in the future?

Clear A Html Form Revisiting Via History?

Jul 18, 2009

Implemented a sendmail in PHP called from a html page with a form.It requires filling some textfields, then pressing the submit button causing the mail to be sent.Now I need this form to be cleared on successful mail transmission.Internet Explorer(or other)saves all field values when moving on to another page.This makes it easy to go back in browser history and resend the mail.What I want is that on a succesful transmission of the mail the form cache(or whatever)is cleared.This must be done in the PHP page called.

Clear History Of Visited Links On Web Pages Using Cookies

Sep 19, 2006

Usually the preferences of a browser can be set to memorize visited links for some time. But how can I override this using PHP?

On my site the visitor clicks on a link and the link changes its color. But I'd like to make it happen that the visitor will have this effect ONLY during one session. So, that the next day all will look "nice and fresh" again.

I've googled around but cannot find the answer to this. I like the usability of the visited link looking different to an unvisited link but I'd also like to have my site look good the next day. I think the site would look "stale" or "dirty" if the visited links would reappear in that darker color.

Prevent Or Clear Back History With Form Submission

Jul 9, 2010

Basically I have 2 pages, '1) Quiz page' and '2) Result page'. Upon submitting the Quiz form, it will generate the result on the result page for the user. However I need to prevent user from clicking on back button or keying in Backspace on the keyboard. I researched the use of 'location.replace()' but have no idea how can I implement it within my form:

<form id="quiz" name="quiz" method="post" action="result.php">
<input type="submit" name="Submit" value="Submit" />

I would like to know if there is any way for me to use location.replace() within the form, or otherwise, any other way that I could prevent/clear user from getting back to the history page.

Page Appears Twice In The Browser's History

Jul 6, 2006

I've got a login include file which appears on every page of my site which when submitted POSTs to the current page, and the include makes the appropriate changes now the user has logged in. The problem is that if the user then clicks 'back' in their browser they get the same page again, so they end up having to click 'back' twice in order to return to the previous page.

Browser History Not Stored Url While Redirect?

Jun 1, 2011

This problem occurs in all browsers except firefox. In my website, for ex, the home page will be like this [URL]. After finsihed authentication, I will redirect the page using header function in php to user's prfoile. So after logged in my page wil be like[URL}.. If the user clicked back button, I will check the session in signin.php and again redirect to user's profile page.

It works fine for me in firefox. Other than that all browsers, If I used header redirection, it will not store the page in browser's history. I mean, I am redirecting the user after authentication in signin page. So the signin.php url not stored in browser history. So If I use back button, it will go to previous site what I opened before opening my site.

Post Form Resubmits When Going Back In Browser History

May 13, 2011

I have created a login page where the user has to input a username and password to login. The username will be put in a session and when the user logs out the session data and session itself gets destroyed. However when I go back in the browser history to the page where I logged in I get the "famous" resend information dialog that asks you to resend the information from the login form. Which means that all the post data gets resend and the user logs in again without having to put in a username and password.

Here is my code:
Code: [Select]<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "">
<html xmlns="">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />


using a header to redirect to the login page is not going to work since I use my view_manager to display the pages. Does anyone know of any solution to get rid of that stupid resend information dialog without using a header? I tryed unsetting the values of POST in my login code but that did not seem to work. Is there anyone who knows how to remove the POST data from a form when the user goes back in browser history? If it's not possible, is there any solution except using a header?

Clear The Browser Cache And Refresh ?

Dec 15, 2010

I have a script which allows a visitor to the web site to upload an image. Since this replaces an earlier image, it gets given the same name (desirably). The upload, and the renaming happen OK. But when all is committed to the database and the visitor is shown the result, the old image is still visible. Clearing the browser cache and refreshing the screen (manually) shows the new image.

Is there a way I can get PHP (or JS, I suppose) to do this automatically as part of the script ?

Session Is Clearing While Clear Cookies In The Browser?

Cookies are saved on browser side. Session is saved on server side.

If we clear cookies in the browser why session is also getting clear.

As per conditions cookies are saved in browser side. And session are saved in server side. If we clear cookies in browser how the session which is stored in server is also clearing.

Caching - Clear Browser Cache To Avoid Form Data Resend After Refresh

Nov 16, 2010

I'm developing a PHP-MySQL app that enables registered users to enter text comments. Problem is:

User sign-in into the web site - OKAY
User presented with a form to submit text comment - OKAY
User enters text comment and submits - OKAY

I have a routine that sanitize the comment & save it into MySQL (with userid, textcomment, datetime stamp) & present back the user that his/her comment is entered - OKAY

User decides to refresh browser - a duplicate comment is entered - BAD!

I was thinking 3 options: OPTION 1: Routine that checks: last time user posted comment, and if so, check if this is a duplicate. If duplicate then display error message. OPTION 2: Routine that does not allow a user to post too quickly. So basically do not allow postings of comments within 1 minute or so. So if browser is refreshed the comment will be ignored. OPTION 3: Manipulate the browser cache to clear out its contents so when refreshed no duplicate will be entered.

Now in the context of my application, my concerns with OPTION 1 and OPTION 2 is performance PHP-MySQL since I already have various queries within the same page that push/get data from databases. So OPTION 3 may target the issue differently. Questions is: If I go for OPTION 3 can this be considered a Best Practice?

Is There A Limit To History.go()?

Nov 3, 2006

I have a small website for displaying my pictures to the world ( ), and have just added 'prev' and 'next' buttons to the 'display' page. You get to the display page from the 'categories_grab' page where all the images in the category that has been chosen are displayed as thumbnails.

I wanted to be able to return to the 'categories_grab' page at the same position it was when a thumb is clicked, so I made a variable '$num_clicks' and pass this in the command line, incrementing it by -1 everytime one of the buttons is clicked, and then in the 'anchor' attached to the picture I put <a href='javascript: history.go($num_clicks)' target='_self'>.

i was wondering if there was a way for them to login and return to the previous page, i know if could create a login page for every page and redirect them to each relative page but that would just be so inefficient i was just wondering if there was a way to attach the page (filename) to a session or cookie etc.

User History With Mysql?

Mar 31, 2009

I am creating an application that will display a group of random user_codes. The user veiwing them will check them off and hit a button that will repeat the process. My problem lies in the memory of those checked boxes. Once they are checked they should never be displayed again. I can't think of an easy way to do this without a huge server load. Only thing I can think of is a table for each user containing a line for each other user and keeping track like that. But that would create massive databases if I had say 10000 users with 9999 lines in each of thier tables. I hope there is a better way to do it.
