How do I fix a php mobile detect and redirect script to allow users on mobile devices to see the full site

I have this script at the top of my code:

<?php
error_reporting(E_ALL ^ E_NOTICE);
 session_start();
$refering_url = isset($_SERVER['HTTP_REFERER']) ? $_SERVER['HTTP_REFERER'] : '';
//echo $refering_url;
if (strpos($refering_url,'mobile/ab-moving-storage-mobile.html') !== false) {
    //echo 'true';
	$_SESSION['last_url']=$refering_url;
}
else
{
//echo "else condition...";
if($_SESSION['last_url']=="") {
 require_once('mobile_device_detect.php');
mobile_device_detect(true,true,true,true,true,true,true,'http://www.abmoving.com/mobile/ab-moving-storage-mobile.html',false);
}
//$_SESSION['last_url']="";
}

?>

Open in new window


It redirects with no problem, but when "Go to Full Site" is clicked from the mobile version of the page, it will not display the full site version on the mobile device. It redirect to the mobile version

The desktop page: abmoving.com/ab-moving-storage.php
The mobile page: abmoving.com/mobile/abmoving-storage-mobile.html

We are working on a responsive site but I need this in the meantime.

you must add a parameter in the "Go to Full Site" link/button.

so you can check if it was a click from it :

$gotoFullSiteClicked = $_GET["gotofull"] == "1"; // check if the parameter gotofull is set to 1

else if($gotoFullSiteClicked)
{
   // go to full site

Thank you, but I am not a coder. Where would this parameter be placed? In the non-mobile page?

Been out of town for a few weeks and returned today.  Got a neglected question alert on this one.  Here is my take on the question.

The trend from desktop to mobile "tipped" in 2012.  Nobody uses mobile detection any more.  The assumption today (2016) is that all accesses are coming from mobile first.  This means that we design for mobile, and let desktop be the graceful fallback.  To that end, tools like Twitter Bootstrap are the right way to go.  The interim step of trying to shoehorn an old desktop site into some kind of mobile-friendly structure may not be value-added.  In my experience, it's faster and gets better results, if you just refactor the old site (only once).

Also, you really need a coder to handle this.  It's worth the investment to get it completely right, and the results will likely serve you well for a long time!
