Redirect ie browsers to different css

iblogpro5 ie8 browser detect css

Best Answer James B , 20 June 2013 - 09:20 PM

Hi there,

 

Instructions for the browser specific plugin and how it applies to the css can be found here - http://support.pagel...r-specific-css/. Basically you'd place a prefix for the browser in front of the css for the section, that will tailor it to the specific browser only and not affect the others.

 

If you're looking to block certain browsers and advise the user to upgrade, try http://wordpress.org...rowser-blocker/

Hi,

I'm using iBlogPro5, great theme. But ies don't support css3 so I need my site to detect these browser to send them to some acceptable css for the navs to look decent ? Note that I have very little coding knowledge that's why i use pagelines!!

im thinking of simple css like no round corner no gradients etc.

 

site is www.globalrecobros.com

 

Thanks in advance

 

Dalia

Newer versions of IE do support CSS3, For those that don't you can use the browser specific CSS plugin

to add alternative CSS for those elements in other browsers.

ok thanks for all this. very usefull and looks easy.

 

Have one last question related to ie8 loading with heavy difficulty the page. And that's the only one! Any idea why? Could it be because the stylesheet it's linked to, is too overwhelming?  :phew: Will my new styles solve this, or could the javascript be too much as well? thinking of the features slides...

 

Thanks once more

Dalia

 

PS: Unfortunately i cannot ignore this browser, 40% of my client's clients have hit the site with it....
