How do I add a custom page that is displayed only to Internet Explorer users so that they are not able to access my blog.

I'm using Wordpress 3.3 and thought there would be a plugin for that or something but no luck (there's a plugin that only adds a pop up window).

Is that achieved by using some kind of redirect or what?

    Do you really want to block IE users? You can't get your blog to work in IE at all? – John Conde Dec 15 '11 at 19:47

You can use conditional comments for IE users and then use JavaScript to redirect them to a page that tells them whatever it is you want to say.

Try something like this in the <head> of your web page:

<!--[if IE]>
<script type="text/javascript">
    window.location = 'ie-only.html';
</script>
<![endif]-->
  • I tried adding a code from the link you provided but don't understand how to use it really. Could you please add a sample code that would lead to page mydomain.com/ie whenever a user tries to access the website with IE? Also, where am I suppose to put the conditioning code? To head, before head or somewhere else? – user11320 Jan 27 '12 at 17:21

  • Sorry, made a typo. Try again. – John Conde Jan 28 '12 at 20:01
  • I noticed that it redirects all the links that I click but not the home page. Also, it redirect links to mydomain.com/[post-date]/[post-name]/ie-only.html istead of mydomain.com/ie-only. – user11320 Jan 29 '12 at 9:51
