        And what campaign might that be? I never suggested petitioning a CTO, CIO or CSO.

          • Perpetual repeats of the same arguments made this thread pointless to read. Not a Pre-Sale discussion either. Move it to Chit-Chat.

            • Well the thread started out pretty reasonable... the guy just wanted an IE6-compatible theme to help support his users who had no choice but to keep using IE6. The last few pages went off topic though.

                • Google have a service where you can add a tiny bit of code in the top of your site and it makes all websites in any browser look like how it would in Chrome. This fixes the IE6 viewers problems (especially png's!!!).

                  The only problem is, a small plug in needs to be downloaded before it can work :/

                  But i suppose this is just like having to install shockwave or java or flash...

                  • Thing is (this has probably already been said) - I understand companies that don't upgrade, I mean - there must be some logical reasons? I don't know. I'm sure someone will be able to/has said why. Individual users.. why? why haven't they upgraded? That's the bit that doesn't make sense for me.

                    • Where I am in Japan right now, it is schools that are the problem. The bureaucracy for how to do things and who to approve and who to pay and whatnot means that nothing gets done except what isn't needed. I personally could safely upgrade every computer in the schools where I work and not worry, but no one would ever allow it. Since the website I am preparing is focused on people at schools internationally, I'm looking into whatever fixes I can for the people who can't help their situations.

I am merely making the point that right now, as I type these very words, 11% of those people on my site are using IE6. More are using IE6 than Safari, Opera and Chrome. If I provide a broken looking site to them, do you think they will become members? Do you think they will hang around or do you think (like most do when coming across a site like that) "ewww, that site needs some attention. Must not be very good".

                        My question to you is: Why does it matter so much? Shouldn't you expect vBulletin "the king of forums" to be able to come up with a design that actually worked in all modern browsers? Why do I get a consistent experience regardless of the browser I am using (rounded corners and all) when I visit a free forum like phpBB? Why should I HAVE to care what my users are browsing with when I use vB but I don't using any other browser out there? Why am I paying MORE and getting less? More importantly, why should it matter to you that I want IE6 support?
                        Well said, wish i'd checked about IE6 issues before upgrading, my site has been a lot quieter since the upgrade and I do get most using IE6.

                          You will have to nag your IT guys to upgrade the browsers. I know they probably will think and tell you all the excuses possible but you would think that they would be the leaders in modern technology then why not take the same attitude in with them and upgrade.

                            Yes,there is a logical reason,has been explained in this thread repeatedly.


                            vB5 is unequivocally the best forum software, but not yet...

                              I know it's hard to understand, but there is a serious cultural difference in the way things are run in different countries. In the place I am now there are no IT guys who make decisions, it's literally a board of almost-retired teachers who know nothing about technology who make the decisions for what "needs" to be done. What essentially happens is that vital security problems are ignored until all the computers using said software literally break down to the point where new computers MUST be bought, at which point the new computers finally have the semi-current browser. And this is in a pretty well-developed and advanced country, while a significant fraction of my target audience will be in places that are even further behind.

                              Again, this is just my personal problem, and the answer I have is to end up paying someone to make an IE6-compatible alternative theme, but I don't think it would be that difficult to incorporate that kind of option into the basic package as a "just in case" measure.

                              And just to go off topic a little bit: I've seen where upgrading from IE6 to a higher browser will result in food donations to people living in poverty around the world. So yes, staying with IE6 is LITERALLY causing children to starve, and yet people still don't do it.
