That isn't a function.  Do you mean strpos() or strrpos()?

Let me know if you need details or the difference on those.

Never mind.  I misread the function name.  What version of PHP are you using?

If you don't know the version you can use phpinfo() to find out.  Make a page with just the lines below in it and save it as phpinfo.php.  Then run it in your browser.

<?php
phpinfo();
?>

It looks like Steelseth12 is thinking the same thing. :)

you could use stripos(strtolower($_SERVER["HTTP_USER_AGENT"]), "hey")

What I do if I know I'll require a function that may not exist is to create it myself in php and wrap it in a conditional if the function does not exist.

This way you can use the newer functions on older versions of php!
