How did you exclude IE6 ?


It is technically interesting but how did you do it? Exclude IE6 browsers viewing your website and pages! Did you have to programme your header page?

We added a simple script that checks the header for browser version and redirects. The script is implemented in the php code.

Browser detection is a thorny subject to say the least as headers can be manipulated, but a simple method of detection in php would like like this:

// get the User Agent
$user_agent = getenv("HTTP_USER_AGENT");
// check if identified as Internet Explorer
if (preg_match("/MSIE/i", $user_agent))
// do IE stuff
// do non ie stuff
