Browse Happy Website - Why is IE6 not supported? (9 posts)

    On the Browse Happy website (http://browsehappy.com/), the CSS is only applied to IE7 and above, with no CSS at all for IE6 (see screenshot).

    Aren't IE6 users the target market for the site? Especially seeing as the link to Browse Happy is included in the HTML5 Boilerplate now for IE6 and below. It doesn't need to look perfect, but just a bit of styling would make it seem a lot more legitimate to IE6 users.

    I realise this isn't strictly WordPress related, but didn't know where else I should post this.

    Thanks,
    Anna

    Yes, you're right, that's not a WP question and IE6 not supported by almost anyone anymore.

    Hi WPyogi,

    Thanks for replying.

    I realise that IE6 isn't usually supported but this is a site primarily for IE6 users trying to get them to upgrade. Because there's a link (which only displays to IE6 users) built into the HTML5 Boilerplate shouldn't this be more of an issue?

    Also, in the footer it says 'Brought to you by WordPress' and links to WordPress.org. So where should I post this if not here?

    Thanks,
    Anna

    WordPress is just software and these forums provide free, 100% volunteer support for use of the software - but we have no direct connection to a site that happens to be using it. It's like asking Microsoft about a Word document someone sent you.

    You'll need to contact the owners of the site.

    It's not just a random site using WordPress, it's a site which is maintained by WordPress.org (or maybe Automattic - hard to tell).

    If I contribute here:
    https://github.com/WordPress/browsehappy

    Will it be pulled in?

    Or is there a separate SVN repo for it? I know WordPress like to use Subversion over GIT.

    Alternatively, is there someone I should contact? Do you know who's in charge of Browse Happy?

    Thanks,
    Anna

    Oh sorry - I've not seen that site referenced from these forums, but I do know that WordPress.COM uses it that way. So yes, it may be an Automattic site. I'll see what I can find out, or you could post on the WordPress.COM forums.

    Thanks. I think it's a WordPress.org site due to the footer link but I'll make the modifications on GitHub then make a pull request. Hopefully someone monitors it.

  8. "Brought to you by WordPress" is a powered by link :)

    HOWEVER. That's one of those weird sites that's actually owned by .org in a kinda sorta way.

    Post about that here on SVN: http://meta.trac.wordpress.org/newticket

    Make the github pull and then link to it in a trac ticket :) Make sure you pick 'Browse Happy' as a component. (Github looks like it's the theme only, which makes some sense)

    Thanks for your help, I've added a trac ticket for it and linked it to the pull request.
