    Bodyclock? what's that? ;-)

    I went to bed this morning at qtr to 3, got up at 8 to be on site for 0845, I worked on site for 15hrs ('til almost midnight) & I'm online now at qtr to 3 again!
    Another early start beckons... then an 800 mile rd trip weekend to see the kids...

    Bodyclock, leisure time, Television, pubs.... just some of the words I no longer no the meaning of! - mustn't grumble though.... I quite enjoy it most of the time (ish)... especially the kids bit! - keeps you going..

    Great stuff.

    Just wondering if in the final paragraph it would make sense to remove the words "endeavour to".

    And spell out clearly that the support offered is normally email only.

    Maybe a few words or links to spell out to people that PHP is easy to use and the function just needs to be on one page to redirect people to their other site if that's what they want - no need to rewrite a site for that. But maybe the people coming to you already know that.
    Also you could encourage users to link back to you.

    Last paragraph edited, email only support bit added, a couple of helpful popups added, a little rewrite on a thing on two on the front end.

    Right, moving behind the front end, what about the new code to detect mobiles? Any thoughts on that yet?

    I know there's a lot of people here who use my PHP to detect mobiles, this new function is much faster and should cover more handsets so I'd be keen to hear feedback from folk.

    I might get around to doing some usage examples but the function generator does that for me.

    As for links, I'm not going to ask. People who understand / rate / appreciate it will do that organically for me I hope / expect.....

    I've been using your old php codes for sometime now. Just wanted an addition for the iPhone & maybe a few others like the G1. Just what I was looking for. I only tested it on a desktop & Tmo Dash so far with great results.

    When I tested it on iPhoney it redirected to the desktop browser but i think this is more of an iPhoney prob than with your code. I'll test it out on a real iPhone soon.

    I just tested it & it does work well on the iPhone 3G! Thanks again. Just what I needed! And faster to boot! Now I just have to come up with an Android version of my site...

    Seeing as there's options in the function to select different URLs for Opera, iPhones and Android devices do you think it should also have options to handle BlackBerry devices too?

    After some time, can I have some revised input on this please.

    I've just had a customer, nightmare, didn't understand php, can't understand English, placed threats to badmouth me, threatened to reverse the transaction at PayPal despite him using my code on a commercial site which means it requires an upgrade.

    A couple of questions:

    Do you understand it?
    How would you make it more idiot proof?

    This guy is one in twenty off thousand to be such a pain in ****........

    Comments and suggestions on making it more friendly would be appreciated!

    Thanks

    Since I'm not a user of your product I can't offer specifics but when you say "It's not rocket science, it's easy to use!" then I wonder who is it easy for? Easy for you? Yes. Easy for someone who doesn't know an include from a hole in the ground? No. Dumb the instructions way down for someone who barely knows how to access their server with an FTP client, or clearly say that the user needs to know how to use PHP.

    That's not hard to accomplish and still be complicated. You know more than you may realize compared to most.

    I don't run a forum so I've no idea where you registered......

    There are examples in the download, they should help you out.

    Thanks
