[resolved] Invalid HTML markup in default blocked screen (8 posts)

    Ironically, this code doesn't work very well in IE :) - When I view the blocked message in IE the cursor does not change as you hover over the selections.

    I think you need to use <span> instead <div> if you want to keep things compliant while using anchor tags outside of a box.

    <a href="http://www.firefox.com" title="Download Mozilla Firefox">
    		<div id="firefox" class="browser">
    				<img src="http://www.bozzmedia.com/web/wp-content/plugins/browser-blocker/images/firefox.jpg?9d7bd4" />
    				<center><h2>Mozilla Firefox</h2>
    				<p>made to make the web a better place.</p></center>

    I went ahead and fixed this. Span did not work properly either on IE6 or IE7, so I simply moved the link tags from outside the browser divs to *within* the browser divs.

    Here is my modified splash.php: http://pastebin.com/JBuL9XbK

    There sexier ways to do this, but I went for a quick fix type approach. Hopefully the developer will see this need and address it in the production version of the plugin.

    Thanks for the update for 3.4!

    Any word from the developers on addressing this markup issue? Almost a show stopper bug here, please consider a fix so folks can continue to upgrade.

    Thanks for your feedback and patience, I have been very busy and it has taken me a while to get around to making the simple patch, but Version 0.5.5 has just been released which has included your suggested update to fix the issue with IE6.

    I updated to version 0.5.5 and now Browser Block no longer works on IE?

    My settings are:
    Internet Explorer Less Than 8.0
    Internet Explorer Is 9.0
    Internet Explorer Is 8.0

    I figured it out! In order for Browser Blocker to block older IE programs,
    typing just 8.0 did not work. You must put the latest updated version. So I put in 8.0.6001. 18702 and this worked!(this is located in IE, under the Help Menu/About Internet Explorer.
