<?php
 
// Browser detection script using PHP Sniff
// http://phpsniff.sourceforge.net
 
// Set this to the URL for your site
$url='http://www.pragersoftware.com/'; // Trailing slash important!
 
// Include phpsniff code
require_once ('phpSniff.core.php');
require_once ('phpSniff.class.php');
 
// Instantiate phpSniff
$phpSniff=new phpSniff();
 
// Lookout for IE6 and below
if($phpSniff->browser_is('ie6') || $phpSniff->browser_is('ie5')) {
echo '<script type="text/javascript">document.getElementById("ldheLabel4").style.visibility="visible";</script>';

Change the start of your script like so


<?php

error_reporting(E_ALL);
 
// Browser detection script using PHP Sniff
// http://phpsniff.sourceforge.net

and see what shows up. Also, make sure that the "require_once" scripts are being picked up. Try doing someting like this

require_once ('phpSniff.core.php') or die("Sniff core failed to load");
require_once ('phpSniff.class.php') or die("Sniff class failed to load");

Darn! You always see these thing AFTER you post. Change the requires to includes. The "or die" does not on requires, but include_once does return a failure code.

See http://uk3.php.net/include_once

Sorry about that - don't know what was going through my head on that one..... :-(

>>I have this script that is not working...
are you referring to the PHP portion? If yes, you probably do not have the correct path to the included files. Provide the full path. Assuming the files are at:
http://www.yoursite.com/includes/phpSniff.core.php

use:
require_once( $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'] ."/includes/phpSniff.core.php");

If the problem is the javascript then use:
echo '<script type="text/javascript">window.onload=function(){document.getElementById("ldheLabel4").style.visibility="visible";};</script>';

It's not finding 'phpSniff.core.php' which is in the same directory as the .php page.

Warning: require_once(1) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/wwwmar1/public_html/sandbox2.php on line 37

Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required '1' (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/wwwmar1/public_html/sandbox2.php on line 37

It appears it's looking for it in the usr/lib/php directory, of which I have no control... what do I do now?
line 37:  require_once ('phpSniff.core.php') or die("Sniff core failed to load");

Change the requires like so


// Include phpsniff code
require_once ('./phpSniff.core.php');
require_once ('./phpSniff.class.php');

That will force PHP to look in the current folder

try:
require_once ( dirname($_SERVER['PHP_SELF']) . '/phpSniff.core.php');

OK... I finally got the thing to find the sniff files... now, when I run it under IE 5, it doesn't display the label (as in the code below).  Is it coded correctly to display a label that is initially set as not visible?
if($phpSniff->browser_is('ie6') || $phpSniff->browser_is('ie5')) {
echo '<script type="text/javascript">document.getElementById("ldheLabel4").style.visibility="visible";</script>';

The syntax is right. Most likely it needs the page to load first. try it as I suggested previously:
window.onload=function(){document.getElementById("ldheLabel4").style.visibility="visible";}

OK... got it working without errors; however, it displays the label regardless of the browser (I only want IE below version 7)... I have placed this script in the head section.
<?php
// Browser detection script using PHP Sniff
// http://phpsniff.sourceforge.net
 
// Set this to the URL for your site
$url='http://www.pragersoftware.com/'; // Trailing slash important!
 
// Include phpsniff code
require_once( $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'] ."/phpSniff.core.php");
require_once( $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'] ."/phpSniff.class.php");
 
// Instantiate phpSniff
$phpSniff=new phpSniff();
 
// Lookout for IE6 and below
if($phpSniff->browser_is('ie6') || $phpSniff->browser_is('ie5')) {
 
echo '<script type="text/javascript">window.onload=function(){document.getElementById("ldheLabel4").style.visibility="visible";}</script>';
}
?>
