Mobile Device Detection

Detects mobile clients, what device they are using and redirect mobile clients.


  1. Upload the 'mobiledevicedetection' folder in this to your Symphony 'extensions' folder.

  2. Enable it by selecting the "Mobile Device Detection" and choosing 'Enable' from the with-selected menu, then click Apply.

  3. There should now be a "Mobile Device Detection" datasource available.


This extension provides a "Mobile Device Detection" datasource for detecting mobile devices based on user-agent string. Its output takes the following form:

<device is-mobile="no" />

If a mobile device is detected the mobile attribute will be set to "yes" and an element will be added the device being used to view the page:

<device is-mobile="yes">
    <android version="2.3" />

It is theoretically possible for more than one device to appear in this list.


You can redirect mobile devices of your choice to a custom mobile site, this can disabled by a visitor by adding ?not-mobile to the current page URL. This sets a cookie and prevents any further attempts to redirect the client.

All configuration is managed from System > Preferences:

No Redirect Cookie
| no-mobile-redirect                |

Redirect URL
| ...                               |

Redirect Devices
| ...                               |

If the URL is set, but no devices are selected, then any mobile visitor will be redirected.


This extension exposes the MobileRedirection delegate, which allows other extensions to override when and where a mobile device is redirected.

        'url'       => &$url,
        'devices'   => &$devices,
        'result'    => $result
