HTML Screen Back button to HTML Screen

I have a Menu Screen that links to an HTML Screen(1) that links to second HTML Screen(2). I have the Navigation bar enabled. But when I click the Back Button on HTML Screen(2), it takes me back to my Menu Screen, when I really wanted to go back to my HTML Screen(1).

I've turned on the "Show Browser Button" but at least in the xcode ios emulator, a browser button has not appeared.

Any thoughts/help/advice?

Thank you,
Jeana

The back button is presumably the one in the navigation bar? If so, think it this way - it is a back button for the plugin that takes you back to what called the plugin (e.g. the menu). It isn't 'aware' of the html content the plugin is showing.

Hi Alan -

That's helpful to my understanding of how it works. Any idea/clues on how I can go 'back'/previous html screen on ios? From what I'm understanding the Android has buttons built in that will do that?

Well, you could do an html/javascript 'back button' into your html pages, but I think from a usability perspective, it wouldn't be that easy to use.

You can enable the bottom toolbar for the screen, which has a back button on it. Be aware, though - users will get confused if you have two back buttons on the screen.
