    Hi.
    Is there a plugin in order to block WP to only old browsers? (like IE6 or Opera 5)

    I found a little script in savethedevelopers.org, but I think it would be nice a small customizations...

    you think ie6 is old? hahaha, yah, right.

    why on earth would you do that, I just have to ask?

    Because this little hack could block access to updated contents inside WordPress posts.
    So, is there something?

    huh?

    Because this little hack could block access to updated contents inside WordPress posts.

    what the h3ll does that mean?

    theres no plugin for such a thing, and if you desire blocking 40% of the Internet from accessing your site -- feel free. thats really fricking stupid - but feel free.

    Try google.

    That would be easy to do, but really retarded.
    Unfortunately, there are too many people who haven't made the switch from IE6/7 to real browsers like Firefox (or Safari even).
    However, we still have to accommodate for them.

    Here are some helpful hints:
    <!--[if IE 6]>
    Stuff you want only IE6 to see.
    <![endif]-->

    <comment>Stuff you want only non IE browsers to see</comment>

    Those are really dumb ways of doing things, but short of using javascript, they may be your best option. Although, I recommend not trying to block <IE6 users.
