    My small 'website' is just a load of links to things like myspace, youtube
    etc., but it's located at and the problem is when I click
    on a link like say . When the main window opens up in
    youtube and the first page appears successfully loaded, I click the
    'next-page' link, say and then click either the back
    button on the browser or refresh the page, it goes back to my original first
    page instead of performing the 'expected' function. Can
    anyone suggest what's going wrong and how I might deal with it? I use Win XP
    and IE6.


    I am a total html newbie, so pls keep it simple if pos.

    Bad I think your site is down. I see "Forbidden
    You don't have permission to access / on this server."

    (If that was just an example, and you don't want to tell us your real
    URL, use, or, or, which were created
    for just the purpose of providing example domain names.
    In YouTube, right?
    .... in YouTube...
    which I don't see, but then I'm not a YouTube subscriber/member person.
    I'm guessing that it's how YouTube coded their page (that's where you
    are, right?), and they are using JavaScript or Flash or frames or
    something. Um, *you're* not using frames on your site, are you?

    If it's YouTube's design decision that's hurting you, your choices are
    either not to click the Back button, but to use YouTube links to get
    back, or to not visit YouTube.

    If it's your page's use of frames, then stop doing that. Provide a real
    URL if you still need help.
    Except for the possibility that *your* use of frames is causing the
    phenomenon you're seeing, this has nothing to do with HTML. That's
    simple innit? ;-)

    It would be helpful to see the real pages.

    Anyway, you're not doing something silly such as using frames are you?
