now a days you can put wallpapers anywhere, its not just for desktops anymore
its for laptops, pda's, cellphones, smart phones etc..

so there will come a time when you will have to provide content for wurl users

so just how can you detect if a user is using a cell phone when they visit your site.

there are a number of way, the easiest i know how is to do it server side

with php you can do that

php is very powerful programming language that lets you do alot of things for your website

so often i used this function or class to detect if a user visiting my site is coming from a mobile device or not


function checkmobile(){

if(isset($_SERVER["HTTP_X_WAP_PROFILE"])) return true;

if(preg_match("/wap.|.wap/i",$_SERVER["HTTP_ACCEPT"])) return true;


$uamatches = array("midp", "j2me", "avant", "docomo", "novarra", "palmos", "palmsource", "240x320", "opwv", "chtml", "pda", "windows ce", "mmp/", "blackberry", "mib/", "symbian", "wireless", "nokia", "hand", "mobi", "phone", "cdm", "up.b", "audio", "SIE-", "SEC-", "samsung", "HTC", "mot-", "mitsu", "sagem", "sony", "alcatel", "lg", "eric", "vx", "NEC", "philips", "mmm", "xx", "panasonic", "sharp", "wap", "sch", "rover", "pocket", "benq", "java", "pt", "pg", "vox", "amoi", "bird", "compal", "kg", "voda", "sany", "kdd", "dbt", "sendo", "sgh", "gradi", "jb", "dddi", "moto");

foreach($uamatches as $uastring){
if(preg_match("/".$uastring."/i",$_SERVER["HTTP_USER_AGENT"])) return true;

return false;
