Back Button not working

my back button is not working properly. The link url I entered is:


You can find it on my “Information” site in the Header-Symbol, just visible for the two last viewports (named “.close-link”):

Further probably useful information:

• I’ve discovered in Chrome’s Inspector that when I use its element-pick-tool, I can’t pick the header’s divs.

• To keep my header as an symbol, I added the back button and “display: none” it on every site except this one site where it has to keep staying. But even when the button is displayed regular without custom code the back-button doesn’t work. So this won’t matter.

Hi @wedo

Can you try to put this code in your before body tag:

var Webflow = Webflow || [];
Webflow.push(function() {
  $('a.back-button').click(function() {
    history.back(1); return false;

Then create a button and simply give it the class back-button

I use this code on a couple sites and it works perfectly!
Hope this helps!

Hey @donaldsv

I did. Now it isn’t clickable, anymore.

Can you paste the code in your project settings instead of the page settings?

I did and it is still not clickable :-/

Here’s a working example

Maybe you need to remove the ‘close’ ID from your button?

Have a look at this post. I had the same problem.
