Re: adi_mobile - Mobile browser detection

Then you’d have something like:

<txp:adi_if_mobile>
	<p>mobile content here</p>
<txp:else />
	<p>desktop content here</p>
</txp:adi_if_mobile>

and you’ll need jQuery on the page for the viewport stuff.

Re: adi_mobile - Mobile browser detection

Hello Adi. I´m sorry to have to ask you again.
Regrettably, tags Testing & Diagnostics don´t work for me.
Check my code. Could be a hosting problem ?

<txp:adi_mobile />
<html>
<head><title>Test Movil</title>
<script type="text/javascript" src="textpattern/jquery.js"></script> 
</head>
<body>
 
<txp:adi_if_mobile>
<p>mobile content here</p>
<txp:adi_if_mobile orientation="v">
- the mobile is being held vertically (portrait mode) <!-- always I see this text, doesn't matter the orientation of my mobile phone -->
</txp:adi_if_mobile>
<txp:adi_if_mobile orientation="h">
- the mobile is being held horizontally (landscape mode) <!-- never I see this text, doesn't matter the orientation of my mobile phone -->
</txp:adi_if_mobile>
<txp:else />
<p>desktop content here</p>
</txp:adi_if_mobile>
 
<hr />
<txp:variable name="adi_mobile_useragent" /> <!-- this tag works correctly -->
<hr />
<txp:variable name="adi_mobile_viewport" /> <!-- doesn´t work, It displays: ?,?,? -->
<hr />
<txp:variable name="adi_mobile_orientation" /> <!-- doesn´t work, It displays: ? (0) -->
 
</body>
</html>

Note: My mobile phone is Samsung Galaxy S2

The code’s fine – it picks up my iPhone OK.

Smells like the mobile detection code is not picking up your phone properly. If you give me your user agent string, I’ll check it out.

Re: adi_mobile - Mobile browser detection

User Agent provides:

Mozilla/5.0 (Linux; U; Android 2.3.4; es-us; GT-I9100 Build/GINGERBREAD) AppleWebKit/533.1 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/4.0 Mobile Safari/533.1

The strange is when I browse your page test it works well in my mobile phone. I pretend the same in my site :-)

If you have no ideas, don´t worry. With what the can I do with your plugin, it serves me.
Regards.

Re: adi_mobile - Mobile browser detection

Hi Adi,

first a big thanks for the plugin.

Can I check on narrow, wide & medium without calling on JS?

If not what is the minimum?
JQuery + <txp:adi_mobile_script />

Also:-
Can you tell me what <txp:adi_mobile_script /> does or calls?

Thanks

Yes.

This is the bit that detects the dimensions & orientation. It refreshes the page & the results are stored in a cookie for later use.

Re: adi_mobile - Mobile browser detection

Does <txp:adi_mobile_script /> call another script?

Or does it execute jquery?

I’m trying to calculate the server load overhead using this will have.

Re: adi_mobile - Mobile browser detection

It’s a small amount of Javascript, which is designed to run only when the orientation changes.

Re: adi_mobile - Mobile browser detection

Adi,

Thank you much for this excellent plugin. I used it for the first time last week – enabling different menus to show up for iPad & mobile users (some drop down menus that work fine on desktop/laptop machines didn’t work well on touch devices). Your plugin works beautifully.

bq. So when you connect to your website using the Android HTC Desire HD, it’s telling us it’s a Mac running Snow Leopard? Do what?

Hi Adi, sorry I completely forgot to reply to this – but just in case you’re interested, turns out HTC (not Android) spoof the user agent by default to appear as a mac, but you can switch this off in the phone settings. No idea why they do this but your plugin works great now.

Thanks again
