Dern Category TAG Anyway --- Help!!!
Anyone use Andy's Ace-Installer Frame Mod? I'm trying to find a way to install a 'back button' in the BANNER.PL script. Here's the problem:

When you click on a link in one of our categories, Andy's Frame Mod brings it up in the bottom frame. The top frame is for redirect. We have the obligatory banner ad, a text link to remove the frames, a homepage button and some 'back button' text. Everything works just fine, except for the 'back button' feature.

We're using some Java code to return to the CATEGORY page, and it works fine as long as you don't start cruising around in the bottom frame. The Java code just takes the place of the 'back button' in the browser, you see, so this is kind of a kludgey stop-gap solution. It starts paging back through the various screens in the bottom frame before going back to the original CATEGORY page.

What we want to do is have the 'back button' simply take the user back to the referring CATEGORY page, but we can't figure out how to do this.

Has anyone ever done this before?

If you've ever used ASKJEEVES and clicked on a link --- that's what we are trying to emulate. We're trying to bring an ASKJEEVES frames look-n-feel to our site using Ace-Installers Frames Mod.

Hope this makes sense and someone can help us figure this out.
