Back

The Back page component creates a back button (an arrow pointing left), which allows users to navigate to the previously visited page (Back), or to the parent page (Up).

There are three available behaviors:

  1. Up behavior (default)
  2. Back behavior
  3. Hidden behavior
Note

If the parent page is the default Home page, then the back button is automatically hidden on the child page.

You can modify the Back button behavior from the Info tab of a page.

Warning

Only superusers can modify the Back button behavior.
