Back Button PluginExtension Specific Addon

It does what the title promisses. It put's a back button in your article where you put a {backbutton} tag.

Two parameters:
1 - Display text - The text used within the tag. If the field is left empty, it will use the default value from the plg_content_backbutton.ini language file.
2 - Wrap div - Yes/No put a div-tag around the anchor.

This Plugin is perfect. It works exactly as it says it does, by adding {backbutton} to any article you have a backbutton on the page.
No need to mess about, or change any settings.

All plugins should be made like this!!!

Thank you for this. I have been copy/pasting the javascript into each article - and it didn't always work. This is such a time-saver.

makes it very flexible to style and place a back button—these kind of plugins and effort keep Joomla brill! Creates a div (if you want) so you can style it with complete ease.
