View Full Version : Checking if javascript is enabled

10-04-2010, 01:39 PM
Hi all.

This is a generic question as Google didn't help at all, does anyone know how to check if javascript is enabled and then I want to display info based on that.

I don't mind how I do it, HTML, PHP or whatever

you check it the other way round. you display the info by default and use JavaScript to remove it (which it won’t do if it’s disabled)

you should also put your script in html comments tags

you shouldn’t. modern browsers know, what to display and what is a script or a style (that fix was required for, er, IE3, I think)

Well, now, you never know! He might be operating a time machine and is worried about what happens when he gets transported to 1997 or so.

then he should worry about a valid passport (not one that says "valid from 2008 to 2018", otherwise IE3 will be his least problem)

LOL! Well, to be fair, so few people in the USA have passports that if he sounds like he's an American he'd never be asked for one inside the country. Especially in 1997.
