You can check the user-agent field in the request header and invoke the corresponding site.

You can then place a query that will redirect the page based on the response your code receives from the detection.

thanks to both of you but unfortunely we are not code people and were looking for an actual script that would do as you suggested. To muddy the waters a little we would like the high end phones (iphone, android based) to view the main site while the low end/older phones would be redirected to a mobile site.

Not sure what links you want but the primary website is underdevelopment eg: www.yourburiness.com and the redirect would be to m.yourbusiness.com. Is that the information you need?

I've attached a php script, courtesy of http://detectmobilebrowsers.mobi/ 

It needs a slight be of personalisation as you require it (for iphone, ipad, android, other smartphone, etc.)
There is an explination as to how to do this within the text file.

When you are done editing, you will need to rename the file, removing ".txt" so it will just be called "mobile_device_detect.php" then you can intergrate it to your homepage.

I am assuming that your web server support php (Hypertext Preprocessor).

If you have any problems with this please let me know and I will take a look for you tomorrow.

unfortunately we already looked at using php script. besides the new site, for which that script would be no problem, we also want to apply it to several existing sites. the sites use html pages with ssi for headers, navigation and footers. to use a php script would require us to recode all the pages so that the ssi will display correctly. this is why we were wondering if there was a java script that would do the same thing as that php script.

thanks

Try placing this script within your head tags on your home page (http://www.yourburiness.com/)

This should redirect iphone, ipad and ipod to "i.yourbusiness.com" and mobiles to "m.yourbusiness.com"

Let me know how you get on with this.

That's odd. It's works fine on my webserver.

Are you able to post a link to the test page? I'm unable to read it, as it's a bit blury.
