Support » Plugin: WP Mobile Detect » wpmd_is_phone() true on OPERA desktops

  • Jonas Lundman



    wpmd_is_phone() works on every browser exept on Opera. It returns true on a desktop computer. All other browsers and devices is ok (Ive tested)

    Author: The core php script (from github) might treat opera as Chrome

    I just need to detect if a user is on a phone device or not, all other devices lika pads, tablets, xboxes or whatever I don care about.

    Any workaround suggestions?

    We have the same problem. I just noticed our site is not working properly on Opera. We use Mobile Detect to display different header on different device. Now all our pages are missing header on Opera. Please provide any suggestion.


    Same problem here.
    Working with Opera 18.0, and its detected as mobile, so the sidebar and navigation wont load…
    The other mobile detect plugins only switch the themes, but I need to exclude some functions only for mobile…


    The detection code was updated:
    Download the source, open the Mobile_Detect.php and copy the code into the wp-mobile-detect/mobile-detect.php (plugins->editor->wp mobile detect).
    Opera works for me again.

    There are 2 mobile-detect.php.
    Don’t overwrite the one with the plugin!
