Hiding modules based on specific IE versions (8 and below)

Hiding modules based on specific IE versions (8 and below)

My development site http://johnjoom.com/corp uses some css3 heavy image sliders that do not work well on IE 8 and below.  Can I use metamod to either hide these image sliders when ie8 and below are detected, and/or throw up a simpler IE friendly image slider?

Tell me yes and how and I will buy your PRO version!  Also, are you aware of any IE friendly image sliders I can try?

thanks!

Re: Hiding modules based on specific IE versions (8 and below)

Hi jjdesch,

sorry, I'm not familiar with many image sliders so can't advise on them.

However, it's easy to get MetaMod to base decisions on different versions of IE.

Try this:

if ($core_genius->check("browsertype = ie") and $core_genius->check("browserversion < 9")) return XXX;
else return YYY;
// replace XXX with the module id to use for IE8 and below,
// and YYY with the module id to use for everything else.


Best regards,
Stephen
