From what I can see in the provided info, it should work. You might want to consider providing more information like a link to the page or upload the whole page HTML here.

Try :

document.getElementById("c2").setAttribute("id", 'c3');
document.getElementById("buyLV3").setAttribute("id", 'buyLV2');

front() can work only if you click on the ">" button the first time and it work only one time
back() work three time if you don't click on ">"

that's the logic of your current code. please confirm it work like that for you.
there's not problem to set id on my side

it won't work the second time as the id your front() method is looking for no longer exists (you changed it with your last click).

Why not use an iterative method for front() as you do for back()?

Using the div count is the only way to allow multiple clicks....

you asked how to use the iterative method you use for back() - in simple terms you are counting which div you are showing with the divCount value and decreasing this with each click on the back link - but you are not increasing it with the clicks on the front link

 try this (you may need to tweak depending on how many divs you end up with):


<script type="text/javascript">
 

 function back()
{
	var a= document.getElementById("divCount").value;
	alert(a);
	if(a==1)
	 {
		
	 }
	if(a==2)
	 {
		
		document.getElementById("buyLV2").setAttribute("id", 'buyLV1'); 
		document.getElementById("divCount").value = parseInt(a)-1; 
		alert( document.getElementById("divCount").value);

	 }
	 if (a==3)
	 {
		 alert("inside");
		 document.getElementById("buyLV3").setAttribute("id", 'buyLV2'); 
		 document.getElementById("divCount").value=parseInt(a)-1; 
		 alert( document.getElementById("divCount").value); 

	 }
}

function front()
{
	var a= document.getElementById("divCount").value;
	alert(a);
	if(a==1)
	 {
		document.getElementById("buyLV1").setAttribute("id", 'buyLV2'); 
		document.getElementById("divCount").value = parseInt(a)+1; 
		alert( document.getElementById("divCount").value);		
	 }
	if(a==2)
	 {
		
		document.getElementById("buyLV2").setAttribute("id", 'buyLV3'); 
		document.getElementById("divCount").value = parseInt(a)+1; 
		alert( document.getElementById("divCount").value);

	 }
	 if (a==3)
	 {
		 alert("inside");
		 document.getElementById("buyLV3").setAttribute("id", 'buyLV4'); 
		 document.getElementById("divCount").value=parseInt(a)+1; 
		 alert( document.getElementById("divCount").value); 

	 }

}
</script>

IE6...Ok.
FYI it work fine on FF, IE8, and Chrome.

You may use an additional class instead replacing the id.

The div : div id="buyLV" class="divider buyLV3"

We change the class, for example :

      if(a==2)
       {
            document.getElementById("buyLV").className = 'divider buyLV1';

<%@ page language="java" contentType="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1" pageEncoding="ISO-8859-1"%>

	alert(a);
	if(a==1)
	 {
		
	 }
	if(a==2)
	 {
		document.getElementById("buyLV").className = 'divider buyLV1'; 
		document.getElementById("divCount").value = parseInt(a)-1; 
		alert( document.getElementById("divCount").value);

	 }
	 if (a==3)
	 {
		 alert("inside");
		 document.getElementById("buyLV").className = 'divider buyLV2'; 
		 document.getElementById("divCount").value=parseInt(a)-1; 
		 alert( document.getElementById("divCount").value); 

	 }
}

function front()
{
	 document.getElementById("buyLV").className = 'divider buyLV4';

}
