hi everyone,

How to prevent user from visting back using browser "go back button" after signout, I have tried

it did show an page expired page when user trying to go back, however, even when user stay logged in, user will get the "page expire" when using the go back button.

Can anyone give me some clue how to prevent user from goint back to previous page (ideally redirect to login page) after sign out, while user can freely go back to previous page while logined in.

First, make sure your dynamic pages have no cache headers or your browser will return an in-memory copy of the previous page when the back button is clicked.

Then, to insure that they don't back click themselves all the way to the original login, use the post-redirect-get pattern to make sure that the first page of your app is returned from a get request, not the actual login post.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
