The 51Degrees.mobi mobile device detection plugin mobilizes your site. Easy setup including mobile switcher, themes and administration tool.
The plugin can be installed via the normal WordPress method. However, if this is not available you can also these other methods:
If you have set up FTP access:
Go to WordPress admin, mouse over plugins, click "Add new", then click "Upload" at the top of the screen.
Click "choose file", find the zip file, and click "install now", then follow the on-screen instructions.
If you have not set up FTP access, or if there are problems with the above unzip the plugin to /wp-content/plugins/
After installation, the plugin has several options you may wish to change:
Open the WordPress admin dashboard.
Select Plugins > Installed Plugins
Underneath 51Degrees.mobi Device Detection, select 'Activate'
Select Settings > 51Degrees.mobi
Create rules to handle different types of mobile device. See user guide for details.
Go to your theme's folder (By default: 'twentyeleven')
Open the index.php file and within a php tag add:
global $_51d; echo $_51d['IsMobile'];
You should see the value as a string, "True" or "False".
You can use var_dump($_51d) to see all the properties available, or check our [property guide] (https://51degrees.mobi/Products/DeviceData/PropertyDictionary.aspx "Property dictionary").
You can use the session variable to prevent theme switching, useful for providing a 'view desktop button'.
$_SESSION['NO_SWITCH'] = true; // The user will no longer be switched.
