As brief as I can make it.

+ go to http://calscape.com/

+ click the "Trees" dynamic link. You should see a list of trees.

+ click the thumbnail or common name of the first tree. A page is 
displayed specific to that tree. Note the slide show.

+ Click the 'Next Plant' link (near upper right corner). Another 
plant page is displayed. Note the slide show.

+ Click the browser back button. the prior plant data is displayed 
but not the prior slide show.


+ I put that slide show into that page with an iframe.

+ I create the show on the fly per the specific plant we are 
looking at.

+ The slide show is an older version (also php) soon to be 
replaced by plant1.php or something very like it.

+ I was experimenting with system() as a means to solve the back 
button problem.


Is anybody still awake?
