WordPress Post/Page - how to detect the screen resolution used by a website user?

Hi Experts,

I have some videos on my website that will only be clear if viewed at a screen resolution 1280 x720 px or higher.

Is there a plugin that will let me give the user a warning if his/her screen resolution is less than that?

There is 'standard' javascript that can check the screen size.  You can see it in the "View Source" on this page: http://www.dibsplace.com/jscr.html  Just copy whatever you want from that page.  I copied it from somewhere else.

They uses JavaScript code, that you can use in your header.php file.

Thanks, Dave & Mandeep,

The problem I have now is that WordPress is filtering out my JavaScript.
What's the easiest way to include JavaScript on selected posts/pages?

I don't know.  I don't use Wordpress.  Maybe Jason will see your question.  He is most likely to know.

I find the easiest way is to do this with an element on the page you want to load something:

if($('#yourElement').length > 0)
    // it exists now do something that only appears on a page where it does.

Hi Frank,

Thanks for your suggstion.
But my immediate problem is that the WordPress Editor will not save any code that I enter.

Here are before and after screendumps (when I click the Update button, the Text window comes back blank).

Nooo, sorry. You input your code like that in the footer.php file Page Template outside of the page where you're trying to add it. See here:


You can also try this extension:


... basically you need to edit a template file though. Hopefully that clarifies!
