The ‘Modify Information button’ on the confirm page is unreliable with a secure check

The ‘Modify Information button’ on the confirm page is unreliable with a secure check

I now have my Checkout page as an https: page.

If I am on the confirm page, and I hit the ‘Modify Information’ button, I usually get a page expired error. I believe it just uses a back function to go to the previous page.

I also have a link to the checkout page, on the confirm page. If I use that link it always works.

Not only that, once I use the link, and then come back to the confirm page, the ‘modify information’ button works from then on.

Do I need to change the code for the modify button to make it work with secure pages?

to avoid the web page has expired error message, you can add the following at line 1:

php:
<?php

ini_set
('session.cache_limiter''private');
?>

Thank you very much!!!!!

I put the line at the top of the checkout page and now the ‘modify information’ button works fine.

I also added it to the confirm page because if I was on the failure page and I hit the back button, it gave me the same error. It also fixed that.

Are there any other pages this should be applied to, in case the user hits the back button?

I cant say about "should", but you "could" apply it to any page the user may hit the back button on except the success pages.

I don't think the use of the back button should be encouraged in an eCommerce site except for the modify information scenario. Even in the failed transaction scenario, the user should be clicking the provided link to go back to the checkout page instead of using the back button.

I am using a flash button on the failure page to link back to the check out page.

I would really like to use your Modify information button for this so it looks like the other cart buttons.

In general is there a way to insert a button which looks like the other cart buttons which just links to another page?

create an image with a link around it:

<a href="checkout.php"><img src="path/to/modify.jpg"></a>
