Web design for Windows Phone with CSS media queries

Has anyone noticed that Windows phone responds to media queries but also thinks it's a desktop computer.

Is php the best route for this?

In my little experience, it's not a general problem which involves all Windows phones: I have a couple a site I've tested with Windows phone and Android and they work fine with both devieces, so I think there is something wrong in your media queries. I suggest to post your css file here: if not me, some other expert sure will can help you better

Couldn't I just design a page for Windows phone and header to that? After determining it was a windows phone?

You could, but I think the suggestion from @marqusG may be a wiser choice.

I have not test this for windows and I have not used this script in a long time but it may do what you want http://detectmobilebrowsers.com


I agree that using media queries is the way to go.   I have had good success with http://getbootstrap.com/ and http://foundation.zurb.com/ as a base so you don't have to reinvent the wheel each time.

I'm worried about android and iPhone right now. Then I will use php and work with Windows phone.

I gave you points because my media queries did not work with the framework I worked out of and I did not know that before I asked the question.

Basically let Windows display the desktop page. Then echo GPS directions for the phone.

It also could be a browser setting. I have a browser which has a display desktop setting. I need to find more windows phones.

But it displayed desktop menu. So that phone was really weird.

That's a weird approach.
