How do I facilite a "full page" option on a mobile website?

Here's the code that I have sitting on the desktop version of my site:

<?php
include 'Mobile_Detect.php';
$detect = new Mobile_Detect();
if ($detect->isMobile()) {
// Any mobile device.
header("Location:mobile/index.php");
exit();
}
?>

My client wants a button on the mobile version of the site that allows them to see the desktop version. How would I facilitate that if the "Mobile_Detect.php" file is automatically routing a mobile user to the mobile site?

I had a couple of ideas, but they all struck me as potentially convoluted, so I figured I would ask those who probably have already done this.

What do you think?

In your button pass a parameter in the querystring of the url, have a check on page request for the querystring param and if set then use a session/cookie to hold the preference and only run your mobile detect if this is not set.

That's what I was thinking, but didn't want to proceed without first checking to see if there was another option.

Thanks, Cathal!
