Just Posted my 8th WordPress theme here at TF and I still made it work well with IE6 .

My question is: Do other authors still continue to account for IE6 and for how much longer?

BTW here is my newest theme, just approved: [removed]

I try to make my code cross-browser compatible but if the IE6 annoys me I stop coding for it :D

Hey mlando,

Congrats on big number 8! That’s awesome!

I think many users tend to still support the very basics of IE6 , such as box model and transparency issues, and leave it at that. Some take a more holistic approach and choose not to support it at all. It’s a judgment call, perhaps consider the most likely niche and market for your latest theme and determine support that way :)

(I’ve had to remove your item link as we don’t allow linking to ones own items on the forums except in one or two cases, I’m sure many users will have a peek via your profile page (did I mention it looks awesome?))

I always throw on a PNG fix and make minor changes to ensure it’s “acceptable” in IE6 .

I always do this at the end of the project. I don’t know if its the way I code, but rarely do I have a gigantic mess when I look at the final design in IE6 , and I’ll just make a few minor changes to make sure it’s still usable and all. This is never something I devote much time to, though.

Probably I’m not allowed to post a link to my Tumblr, so I’ll just quote my blog post:

I am proud to announce that a few day ago I finished my last work for a client with support for Internet Explorer 6. As of today, CMT Studio fully stops supporting IE6 . Any clients that persist their webiste to support IE6 will be fired. I do believe that ethics and support between developer community are more important than money.
