Now updated to prerelease_03.
The nobadbrowser is the spiritual successor to plugin:noiewarning. It shows a special warning when the visitor is using a bad web browser, but this warning is not only limited to Internet Explorer - now it also includes Google Chrome, and it will eventually include some “Chrome reskins” like the newer versions of Opera Browser.
As of this last update the plugin is in prerelease status and should not yet be considered for production use.
Prerequisites: For the plugin to function correctly, your PHP installation requires browscap support. If you are unsure if your current PHP installation supports browscap, you can check the output of
phpinfo(). Enabling browscap support in VPS providers that don't have it is outside the scope of this document.
You don't need to do anything else after installing the plugin.
In order to check that it works, you need to visit your dokuwiki installation using a browser recognized as a “bad browser”, or fake one via a mechanism such as an user agent switcher extension.
Public Demo: See the plugin in action at my DokuWiki demos (of course, visit with a bad browser or fake one).
As of present, no configuration options are available.
For final release it is intended to reuse the config options already available in plugin:noiewarning, meaning it will be possible for the wiki administrator to recommend a good web browser (by default Mozilla Firefox).
The plugin will warn about usage of the following browsers, and offer a redirect to this page where it is explained why these browsers are bad.
Other browsers might be added to the warning list in the future.
At present the plugin does not show information about why a browser is dangerous, instead only directing to this page. This may change in the future if it can be done in a non-invasive way.
