    Allows seeing the types of devices members are using to view your forum.

    There are several reasons why this add-on can be very helpful:
    1. Knowing trends like the type of devices being used.
    2. Knowing a members device is helpful in troubleshooting situations.
    3. Identify duplicate accounts by looking at IP and user agent information.

    (Example of User Agent page)


    (Example of Options page)


    • User group permissions determine who can view the User Agent page.
    • Option to set the number of hours for User Agent totals.
    • All phrases start with useragent_ for your convenience.
    How it works:

    When a member views the forum list page, their information is saved to a table in your database.

    1. Download useragent_v2.1.zip and unzip it.
    2. Upload the Andy folder to your server. The correct location is library/Andy.
    3. From your Admin Control Panel, go to the "Install Add-on" page.
    4. Upload the addon-UserAgent_v2.1.xml file.
    5. Click the Install Add-on button.
    User group permissions:

    Be sure to allow the Administrator and any other user group you would like to be able to view the User Agent page.

    If you're wondering just how users are viewing your forums, this is THE add-on to have. Instantly know how many are using which type of browser and/or what kind of a device. This add-on can quickly make you realize the importance of having a responsive style that is easily displayed on smaller devices.

    Another one of those little gems made by Andy. This helps me to check some of the member questions / issues they have with our forum. Now I can easily reproduce what they're using and test. Thanks!
