IE11 has made IE8, 9 and 10 sooo 5-8 years ago. But even old-school shoppers and admins should be able to access secure pages of the Volusion software, like the admin area and storefront checkout pages. It just comes down to them making some changes to their Internet Explorer browser settings. Here’s how:
- On the Internet Explorer main menu, select Tools > Internet Options
- In the Internet Options box, select the Advanced tab
- In the Security category, uncheck Use SSL 3.0 and check Use TLS 1.0, Use TLS 1.1 and Use TLS 1.2 (if available)
- Click OK
- Exit and restart Internet Explorer
⚠️ Heads up!
It’s important to check consecutive TLS versions. Not selecting consecutive versions (for example, checking TLS 1.0 and 1.2, but not checking 1.1) could result in connection errors. 😬
Old school vinyl is cool. Old school browsers? Not so much. But if you, your admins or your shoppers are using old versions of Internet Explorer, you can still access secure pages of your Volusion store by following the simple steps above. Now that’s cool.
