Please add a user preferences option so members can choose whether they want this addon to reveal what device they're posting from.

It's a good idea and I think something that must be done in France to respect the law, but for the moment I will not spend a couple hours on this addon if nobody plans to use it. Pure common sense.

Bought it and use it successfully at our big board.

We have however modified it to show only a small icon if post was done via any mobile device. I wouldn't recommend using it and publicly reveal what exact device a users owns. ;)

Cédric, thank you for this update and the privacy setting.

The perfect solution would be a 3-part-switch for users:

1) Allow that detailed device information is shown ("posted via Acer Tablet")
2) Allow that information mobile/non-mobile is shown ("posted via mobile device")
3) Disallow to show it

In addition admin should be able to choose which settings of those are selectable by users.

Only new => must have been saved inside the database before.
ok thanks, can you also add an option which allows only admins to view which device the member is posting from, not the members. Also update it with the iPad mini and some other new smartphone and tablets, like the new Windows Surface, etc.. Thanks.

For only admin view, it's just one conditional you can add easily.
For mobile detection, please read carefully the main post. This script is using a php class (Php-mobile-detect) to detect mobile specifications which is using browser user agent:
1) I will not update myself this class.
2) I'm really not sure Apple will change the user agent between an Ipad and a mini Ipad (same example between an Iphone & Ipod Touch => share the same user agent)
