    I have these two JavaScript codes:

    Refresh this page

    This one ^ refreshes a page when clicked

    < Go Back

    And this one ^ takes the clicker back to the page they were last viewing

    I was wondering if both these pieces of code could be combined so that when the back link is clicked the previous page would come back but refreshed.

    Hi, I am making a website that has java in it, I need some help with some code that checks whether someone has javascript enabled, and if not asks them to turn it on.

    Any help would be appreciated.
    thank you silent, that is what I was after.

    I recently downloaded firefox and youtube no longer works on my laptop. I downloaded the most recent flash player and I checked to see that the javascript was turned on and it is. I looked it up and those were the two suggestions everyone seemed to have, but its not working. What do I do?

    Not much else to say. I know there’s the

    function show_confirm()
    var r=confirm(“yada yada”);
    if (r==true)



    but I don’t know how to make it link to another page when you press the OK button. Thanks for suggestions!

    Forgive me in advance because I am a beginner. If JavaScript, PHP, Ruby, and Python are all scripting languages, than why is JavaScript kindof in a category by itself when the others seemed to be classed together. What is different about JavaScript for it not to be considered as seriously as the other three?

    Hi. I’m just playing around making my own website just for fun. Started tonight and did some html and css. Then i got over to javascript not really knowing any of this. Its the first time I even attempt this so keep in mind I’m a noob. Anyways first I tried to add Minecraft in the browser to the website and found a script but then i noticed that Minecraft needs you to login now to be able to play in the browser. So now i wanna add robot unicorn attack to my website instead.

    Ps. This is nothing I’m doing to earn money by any means. I’m just playing around on my computer having a little fun. So if any of you kind souls would like to send me a script i would be very happy 😀 Thank you.

    Hi. I really want to get into scripting and I heard that JavaScript is the best to learn first because it’s easy. So I need a website or download to a JavaScript tutorial for someone with absolutely no experience with scripting. I am a complete beginner. Please provide the link. Thanks!
