Re: Make Module only show for IE Users!

1 - make sure you are following (and understand) the Quick Start Guide: http://www.metamodpro.com/metamod/quick-start

2 - use the following recipe:

if ($core_genius->check("browsertype = ie") ) return XXX;

replace XXX with the module id number to use for IE.
If you want to learn more about JomGenius support (e.g. checking browser version numbers etc), see http://www.metamodpro.com/jomgenius/par … dcheckcore

Re: Make Module only show for IE Users!

Hi Expi1,

I just tested the code and it does work. I think there's probably something else in the rest of your setup that's not quite right.

Check:
- the MetaMod is enabled, in the correct module position, and assigned to the appropriate pages (or all pages)
- the target module is disabled (or set to "none" pages)
- you don't have anything in MetaMod's "quick module id include" box
- you have the code from above put into MetaMod's "PHP" box, and you have replaced the "XXX" with the module id of your target module.

Also, see the Quick Start guide: http://www.metamodpro.com/metamod/quick-start

Cheers,
Stephen
