IE6 warning displays a block exhorting IE6 users to upgrade their browsers. The block is displayed on every page, but the user can close it with a link on the top right corner of the block. Upon closing the block, a cookie is set so that the block doesn't show anymore.

The idea of this module comes from :

The message displayed in the block can be set by the administrator.

To play well with sites caching the content aggressively, everything is happening client-side: the block is always sent, hidden, and IE6 users have the block shown via Javascript.

Installing the IE6 warning module is simple:

1) Copy the ie6_warning folder to the modules folder in your installation.

2) Enable the module using Administer -> Modules (/admin/build/modules)


1) Configure the site-wide setting for IE6 warning, Administer -> Settings ->
IE6 warning message. Eventually change the message.

2) Activate the options IE6 warning block, Administer -> Site building ->
Blocks. Set the block to be displayed in the header for instance

3) Find a version of IE6, and try it!


1) You can of course change the message in the module settings
