Support » Plugin: WP Mobile Detect » Solid base script, -get the job done!

  • Sometimes I don understan WP core developers, and the extramly poor is_mobile() is a great example for something useless. Howdy WordPress! Who wanna see a big ios button on the Samsung Galaxy tablet?

    So you need a better detection. And this plugin provides that.

    This plugin is using php-mobile-detect, The lightweight PHP class for detecting mobile devices (including tablets) and I been using that script for a long time, outside the WordPress area.

    I did some test of other plugins before I was going to develope my own, based on the script mention above. None actually filled the simpleness and stable of what I needed. Except for this one, Hmmm this might be a good solution – then I read that this was build on my old favorite script.

    I only miss the auto class naming of each device setup like is-desktop class in the body tag, but ya can add easy your own function for that.

    A tip, when using this kind of plugin, always make a if (function exsists) call, so your theme doesnt break when Not using mobile detection later on, for some reaason.
