Hello all, (first post here, new RN user...)

Does anyone know of a way to control the visibility of a block based on the users browser?

TIA.
Aaron....

Interesing question, I'm not saying I know the answer, but do you want all blocks to have this functionality, or just one?

Just trying to understand exactly what you are wanting to do?

Hi,

Well, I'm basicly wondering if I could have two similar blocks with one being shown to IE users and the other to say FF or Opera users. This could also be used, I guess, based on version. eg: one block for versions below v.4 and the other for browsers v4 & above.

Today, I'm just looking for a quick fix for a block I am working on that works great with IE, but is failing in FireFox...

Thanks for the reply,
Aaron.

Well it should be possible to use Javascript to detect the browser that the user is using. See this link: Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login!

But, it may be easier to try and fix the problem which is causing your code not to work in Firefox.

Sure its certainly possible, reading from the user-agent of the browser people are using.

Look at includes/counter.php and that should give you the necessary code to work
