- Detects and shows commenters web browser/operating system (used in the comment loop)
- Describe an arbitrary user agent string (for general use)
- Can show web browser/operating system icons
- If the user is "cookied" - a.k.a blog admin visiting the blog - , it also displays an asterisk titled with the full user agent string(just mouse hover the asterisk to see the string). Regular visitors can't see this feature.
- All mainstream browsers and SOs are detected, blogging softwares(trackbacks/pingbacks), text based browsers, antiquated browsers, cell phones and pdas
- It can be "automagically" added in your theme if you do not want/like to edit templates
My device is not being recognized, or I get the message “Unknown Browser”. Why?
Your device is too new or I did not get the user agent string to parse in the code. Send me the user agent string and the name of the unrecognized device, and I’ll fix it.
I didn’t like the icon for “name-your-browser-or-so-here”. Can I change/send you a better one?
Yes, you can. There`s a directory named “icons”, with all of them. Just change the ones you want. Some icons may not be the best, but I don’t spend that much time looking for them. If you’ve got a better one, send me, and if I like I’ll put it in the next release.
Are you the original author of the plugin? Priyadi just have the same plugin you do!
I’m not the original author, Priyadi from http://priyadi.net is. But he discontinued the development, so I contacted him and now I’m the new maintaner/developer of it. I’m an author, but not the original one.
I don’t like where the plugin shows the browser and OS. Can I change it?
Yes you can, but you need to place the hook by yourself on the theme, and choose “manually” on the plugin admin page.
