    Post How To Do A Mobile Redirection Professionally

    It has come to my attention the nubmer of people who do not know how to do a proper mobile redirection.

    When I saw Philip's comment in this thread: How to determine if a visitor is using a phone or computer I decided I needed to share my knowledge on the matter.

    You can absolutely (Im correcting Philips answer here) redirect mobile browsers 99.27% of the time using a simple php script placed at the top of your index page.

    I use the script from: http://detectmobilebrowsers.mobi/
    I've used it for about a year now, and as long as you update the WAP list, then the % of mobile browsers redirected to the mobile site sucessfully will increase.

    If anyone has any questions about this post it below.

    redirects are bad; everyone should use the same url for the same thing; that's cool.

    since one can make a page that works everywhere, why maintain two sites?
    my site (updated 13/9/26)
    BROWSER STATS [% share] (2014/5/28) IE7:0.1, IE8:5.3, IE11:8.4, IE9:3.2, IE10:3.2, FF:18.2, CH:46, SF:7.9, NON-MOUSE:32%
