Hitting back button after form Submit sends me back to confirmation page?

  1. We have a form that is being submitted through Ajax. When the user completes the form, they are taken to a Thank You page. Once there, if you hit Back on the browser, it re-directs right back to the Thank You page. Any way to fix this?

    For an example:

    http://emyth.staging.wpengine.com/

    Scroll down to Coaching section and click Get Started where it reads "Interested in a free consultation?"

    Many thanks!

  2. I think this comes down to browser functionality. Any time you hit the back button after submitting a form, strange things can happen. Because you are submitting via AJAX, even stranger things can happen. Here is a good discussion of the problem: http://stackoverflow.com/q/87422
