Default Problem with PHP and IE


I am developing an application using PHP and Oracle. I am having one problem with this.

When I try go use browser "back" button, it gives a message "Page cannot be refreshed without resending the information, Click Retry to send information again" and then I have to hit "Refresh" Button everytime.

I am using "POST" method for passing my variables.

Is there a way I can get rid of this irritating message while trying to go back ?? Also if I use GET instead POST what are the changes I would have to make in order to make my code work.

Please help me !! Thank you for your help.

This message happens because the page you're trying to load was generated as the result of having submitted POST data. You can only get rid of this error by using GET instead of POST.

The easiest way to convert your scripts to using GET instead of POST is to simply search and replace all instances of $_POST and convert them to $_GET.

One thing to be aware of -- there's a limit to how long your URL can be, so you can't use GET to submit large amounts of data. For example, you wouldn't want to use GET for this forum's reply textarea...

Take care,
