Cel Update your Browser Nagger (unobtrusive)
Mod Version: 4.0.002, by cellarius (Coder) cellarius is offline
Developer Last Online: Oct 2017 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.0.x Rating: (5 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 43
Released: 01 Apr 2010 Last Update: 03 Apr 2010 Downloads: 199
Not Supported Uses Plugins Auto-Template  

.
This modification also works with vB3
(probably all versions > 3.5)


Oh, all that discussions on vbulletin.com and elsewhere whether vB4 should support IE6 or not... now, while I think it should, because still a significant part of the userbase uses it, there's nothing against giving those users a friendly little hint.


What does this mod do?


Its quite simple, really - it just adds the code to show a small friendly notification bar at the top of the browsing area (like most browsers use). It will remind the user that he's using a rather old browser and should upgrade.

To do this, this mod inserts code provided by

http://browserupdate.org



which gets added to the footer template right before the closing </body> tag. The javascript provided by browserupdate.org can be found at http://browser-update.org/update.js


Which browsers are nagged?


At the moment, the popup shows for the users of Internet Expolorer <= 6, Firefox <= 2.0, Opera <= 10.01, Safari <= 2.0 (April 2010). This will be adapted by the provider from time to time. If you want to change this, please read under customization.


Language?

The bar detects the browser default language; if there's a translation, it will be used. If not, it's english, or you can force another language or use your own text (the latter seems not to work atm). Please see the next topic on customization. Available languages atm are en - de - it - es - pl - nl. If you want to post a translation here in the thread, I'll try and pass it on to browserupdate.org. The text is:
Your browser ($browser $version) is out of date. It has known security flaws and may not display all features of this and other websites. Learn how to update your browser



Customization?


Yes, possible - but not supported in any way in this thread. Anyway, for easier appliance you can find the possible settings for parameters to pass to the javascript in AdminCP under the settings page for this mod. See screenshot. For details on customization options, see this page. Please note that the option to use custom text is not yet implemented properly, I have mailed the people at browserupdate.org and filed a bug there.

You also can style the bar differently, if you want to. The necessary css-classes are also on the page linked above. I'd advise to put them into additional.css, if needed.


Suppoort on customization?

Sorry, If you want to customize the bar, you're on your own. It's not my code, this mod only provides the means to add it easily.

cellarius, Browser Update website have a pt (portuguese) translation of this phrase:

"Seu navegador ($browser $version) está desatualizado. Ele possui falhas de segurança e pode apresentar problemas para exibir este e outros websites. Veja como atualizar o seu navegador".

Tagged and waiting for update. =)

There won't be an update. The language is not selected by the mod, but by the browserupdate.org-code automatically.

I like the idea and would really like to use this mod... But it does not report correctly.

Opera 11 IS the newest build, but this tells me I'm out of date.

The same seems to happen with Firefox & Google Chrome

This still does not work right. It shows an erroneous message while the users are on the latest version of firefox.
