[New] Easy Install Script Included
All the testimonials from customers have shown how much they like the Sniffer, but however, I have been receiving an increasing number of mails regarding the installation of the script. Now I’m writing this for a reason, v1.1 comes with a simple & easy to use INSTALLER !!!
How to use the installer
- Copy the script folder sniffer to your server, lets say it /var/public_html/site_demo/ which is the root directory
- From your browser, point to http://www.yoursite.com/sniffer/install/
- If you want the script to auto write a config file for you, be sure to mark the config.php file writable, otherwise you can copy paste the code into your config file
- The script generates the codes in 2 sections,
<?php include_once '/var/public_html/site_demo/Mobile-Sniffer/sniffer/MobileSniff.php'; MobileSniffer::redirectByPreference(); ?>
This is the include code you need to use on top of your site files.
The second section is the actual config.php code
- The first section requires PHP 5.3+ to work, but the second section would work nonetheless

I’ve purchased several products and scripts from CodeCanyon. The level of support I’ve received from the developer, “smart techie,” with this script is far and away the best I’ve ever experienced from any other developer/programmer. He promptly replies to every email, answers every question, and tries to resolve any/all issues with the script. I would definitely purchase other scripts from him.
As a mobile developer I have been looking for a redirect that will work efficiently amongst all my sites. Does everything I needed and more with a little assistance from smart_techie. Great script that works and has a lot of options for configurations as well.
