my site is working fine in IE7 and Higher, Firefox etc but Its not IE6 or Lower friendly i've tried solving this but have had no luck what so ever and have been told not to worry about it due to the minimum amount of users for these browsers
shold i have a browser check on each of my pages to check that the user is not using IE6 etc and display an error page with links to the latest browsers if they are? looks very messy in IE6 and didnt want to give a bad impression to anyone who is using that browser
To be honest ljackson, I would try and find out why your site isn't working in IE6, and act accordingly - rather than trying to find ways around it. For a site such as yours, I expect you may have a few IE6 people. If this were something for web-savvy customers, you could block IE6 users out (IE6 users claiming to be web-savvy? C'mon.) Lower than IE6, forget about them. It's ridiculous they've even managed to hold on to such software for so long.
First of all I'd check out this link to IE6 transparency.
And then the rest of the problems, we could all help you fiddle with your code, it'll be a bit of work - but.
If you're content on blocking out a percentage (don't know a statistic off the top of my head) of people, then we can go in that direction too.
Hi Guys, thank you for all your replys, i personally would like to fix the site so that it works for IE6 but everything i have tried doesnt work
i have tried 2 PNG Transparency hacks and neither of them wants to work , the font is Hobo Std, and yeah it is hard to read and im thinking of changing this but i wanted to keep the same font as i have used in the logo(maybe for headings only?)
my stats for IE6 are
hits | % |visits
355 9.45 48
so around 10% of my users which isnt huge but thats 48 times someone has seen a **** page :D
