File Name: (X32) IE TakedownFile Submitter: .PeterFile Submitted: 15 Jun 2011File Category: Hooks and Plugins
IE Takedown simply informs your users if their version is outdated, based on settings you supply. The hook defaults to informing users if they are using Internet Explorer 6 or older, however you can choose to inform your users even if they're on IE 8.
The internet and its' languages are progressing at such an amazing rate, with HTML 5 and CSS 3 combined with jQuery the powers are nearly endless, however many websites are having to "dumb" up their source code to provide backward compatibility to older browsers, especially to the older versions of Internet Explorer.
Now you can do your part as a web owner and help the internet out by putting more people on an up-to-date browser.
To install the hook simply log in to your ACP. On the left menu you will see a "Manage Hooks", click that. Once on that page navigate to the Install Hooks tab. Install the hook and the settings can be found under the "Hooks" tab in the System Settings area of your ACP.
If everything works you should never even know that it's on your website! (Unless you're using an outdated version of IE, in which case, shame on you.)
Enjoy! And thank you for doing your part!See the demo http://xternalserv.com/live - Note that the demo will only work if you're using IE8 and belowClick here to download this file
Usefull but hard to translate, can you replace the image with a background image and a text ? (Same as IPB button for example)
The image that is listed in the hook is no longer available on the site ( )
I have the image available on my site if you wish to use it.
Might be best to update the hook to use either a image host or your own site as I have done.
It's available, they just changed the location. Attached is the corrected hook file.
Would be great if you gave us the option to use text instead of an image.
