    cclaerhout submitted a new resource:

    Mobile Agent Tracer (version 1.0) - This addon displays inside a message if the user used a mobile device to post it.

    I can't believe that people want to pay $10 for an original writing code, its just not fair:(

    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.

    I think if it was free it would have more users. Or even $5.

    Everyone would like to have everything for free. All work deserves to be rewarded!
    You should pay with euros as 5€ = $6.50.

    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.

    I just integrate this option inside the admin side. It would need too many tweaks from the user side (and I've just finished the user interface a few hours ago... so).

    Wow. I'm impressed!
    Admin side is fully sufficient.

    Will this add-on show which device was used for previous posts as well? Or only new posts after installing this?
  18. cclaerhout

    cclaerhout Well-Known Member

    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)
