Wrong list--this is for asterisk code development.  Try a FreePBX users list or even the asterisk users list.

How do i do a forward link into the custom context, and if the user presses some keys to escape my routine I want to return to where I came from… how do i do  "return" basically inside, how do you jump back to an IVR stage generated by FreePBX.. I don't want to have to edit each time is use FreePBX any files FreePBX overwrites, because we make changes all the time in the dial plan.
