SSL Labs Score

Using this plugin, you can choose minimum version numbers for the major browsers. These are the browsers supported by this plugin:

  • Internet Explorer
  • Safari
  • Firefox
  • Chrome
  • Opera

Users who don't meet the minimum requirements are shown a modal window suggesting that they update their current browser, or install a new browser - complete with download links! NOTE: You must enable each browser you wish to provide links to - by checkboxes located in the plugin configuration. By default - only the current browser is offered as a download option.

Administrators can enforce these minimum requirements by disabling the "Continue" option, which forces the users to meet the requirements by keeping the site just out of reach behind the modal window.

Aside from version and continue options, administrators can choose to use the default styling or provide their own styling via their template CSS, choose to disable the background overlay, and set the opacity of the background overlay.

For those with multilingual sites, all of the text is set by Joomla language files so you won't be leaving anyone behind.

This plugin is 100% MooTools, so it doesn't require any additional javascript libraries. It makes use of the BrowserUpdateWarning MooTools plugin by Andy Fleming with some of my own modifications to allow for multilingual sites.

The Demo site URL has very high (non-existent) version numbers set, so it will display for all users using the targeted browsers.

Features:

  • Version Selection
  • Continue option
  • Optional styling

Paid Extension FAQ

What am I buying?
  • The extension
  • One year of updates
  • Support
Do you still support free versions?
Only bugfixes
Can I install the extension on multiple sites?
Go for it
Can I give a copy to my friend?
While this is ethically wrong, there is no easy way for me to stop it. However, if your friend wants support he should call you - because I won't talk to him unless he purchases the extension.
What happens to the extension at the end of the year?
Nothing. It remains installed and configured, it just stops receiving updates and support is suspended.
What if I give you an idea that you turn into a paid extension?
You'll be given a lifetime subscription for that extension.
