IE redirect

I’ve found similar questions here but haven’t found the exact thing I am looking for.

Specifically, I need a script to detect older versions of IE (those that do not support PNG transparency) and that will redirect the browser to a specific page.

Might work with inserting some HTML Markup (Before )

You can change the IE version number and redirect location as you seem fit …

LOL … I can remember an action (by Walther Davis if I recall correctly) that prompted IE users to download Firefox instead :slight_smile:

Still there, still works. It prompts ALL versions of IE to get Firefox, though. I need to revamp it to set a minimum acceptable level. IE 10 is supposedly pretty good.

In other words, (?)
<if lt IE 7>

Not quite. That’s close but not quite the correct syntax for a conditional comment. You need a few more characters in there. If you want to redirect IE 6 and lower, you would do this:

The ‘lte’ part means ‘less than or equal to’, which is exactly what would match lt IE 7 (less than 7). I prefer the lte because it’s more explicit what you mean, and you’re less likely to write lt IE 7 when you mean to exclude 7 and below.
