My “back arrow” button does not work on this site.
When pressed, I see the ‘refresh’ swirly thing activate, but the display stays on the same page.
Should I be pressing something else to get this function to work?

I just tired it and it works for me.
Older version of Windows? Maybe some other version, like Linux you are using??

On my iMac, I found that Command + Left Bracket (just to the right of letter P) works, not only on this site, but others as well.

I love that the OP is treated like an idiot because lumberjocks.com can’t make a website that works with a back button.

Lumberjocks, just fix your freaking site so a back button works! It’s a pain to use your site on a PC because of this issue.

I installed firefox adblocker and the “back button” now works.
Thanks for all the suggestions guys.

It is surprising that this problem has never been fixed. I would think that when the work-around for a bug is to block all advertisements, fixing that bug would have high priority.

The last time that I turned off my ad-blocker here to see what I was “missing”, the first ad that I saw was something about “Social Security Sucks”. Nice.

The problem most likely is not the LJ site, but the code supplied by the ad serving software and their multiple redirects. Kind of hard to fix if it’s externally generated.

I am guessing LJ is getting money from the advertisers.
