template based on browser version.

template based on browser version.

New to this.
Sorry but I thought this would be a no brainer, but I did not find a quickstart guide or example for this and forum search is difficult to find what I'm looking for.

I want to set it up so that old browsers use a specific template.

If browser = ie 6 - 10 then use template A  otherwise use template B.

how can I achieve this?

Re: template based on browser version.

Hi zipadyduda,

this is nice and easy to set up. Let me explain how:

1 - set up your site to use the "default" template, the one that will be used for most modern browsers. You can do that in the normal template manager (not in Chameleon)

2 - in Chameleon, create a new rule and give it a name e.g. "Switch template for older browsers".

3 - in the new rule, look for the tab or section called Environment. In that, there's a control called Browsers. In that, select all the browsers you want to use a different template (in Joomla 3, select them one at a time from the list until you have selected all that you need).

3 - in the same rule, look for the ACTIONS tab. In the top dropdown on the left (under SUCCEED Actions) there's a dropdown called Set TemplateStyle. In that dropdown, select the template that you want to be used for the list of browsers you created earlier.

4 - save the rule and test it out.

Best regards,
