I'm trying to direct a visitor's browser to a page called resform-mobile.htm, if the visitor's device is mobile.  My code isn't working -- the wrong page is loaded.

<script type="text/javascript">
if(TestforTouchScreen() )
{document.write ('location.replace("https://secure.mauitradewinds.com/TransMan/resform-mobile.htm")');}
</script>

The page which is supposed to perform the location.replace is http://mauitradewinds.com/Test/resform-redirect-test.htm  Please advise.

Start by temporarilt sticking an : alert("Mobile device");  at the start of the location replace block, and see if TestforTouchScreen() is firing correctly.

Also worth a try:

{
    alert("Mobile device"); 
    window.location = "https://secure.mauitradewinds.com/TransMan/resform-mobile.htm";
}

Open in new window
