Bellow browser version splash screen?

  • # October 23, 2009 at 6:08 pm

    I have a question,
    I don’t know if it can be done, or what language I would need to code it in.

    Let’s say your webpage is coded with IE 8 in mind, and haven’t hacked it so it works with IE 6. Is there a way so when a user goes to your URL, your website it checks what version of that browser they are using and if bellow a set version, lets say you have it set for no lower than IE 8, It displays a splash screen before going to the website?

    What I want the splash screen to say is:

    Quote:
    Oops!
    It looks like your browser is out dated.
    Please click icons below to update your browser
    (images of IE, Firefox, Safari, Chrome, Opera)

    Continue anyway –>

    So if they have a browser version lower than the set browser they can update, or click continue anyway. But, if the user is using the set browser version or better they won’t see that splash screen.

    Does that make sense?
    Is there a way do do this? and how?

    Thanks.

    Just a little update,
    I liked the idea of sevenUp, but it doesn’t work that well. I searched around and I’m actually using this:

    I hope that helps other people wondering how to do the same
