This guide outlines how to create a Cron job to automatically update your Premium Data file in a PHP environment.

5 Reasons Responsive Design Alone Isn't Working

Responsive Web Design allows designers to implement web pages which work equally well on different types of devices. Cascading Style Sheets 3 (CSS3) media queries enable the CSS used to control the page look and feel to be altered based on screen size, and other properties of the device when the page is being rendered on the browser. Responsive Design works really well with simple web pages containing elements that are implemented consistently across the major browser vendors.

How to use XMLHttpRequest and XDomainRequest to stream messages

Our PHP device detection API includes a feature to update the rules and data used to identify requesting browsers, operating systems and hardware via a single PHP script (51Degrees.mobi.update.php). Plug-in developers want to use this script to provide a simple button to update the device data from within their favourite CMS' administration interface. However our update script simply writes status messages back to the browser as plain text. Some browsers don't display these messages as they arrive, instead waiting until the entire message has been received. This is no good if we want to provide the user update status messages as the update is happening. For example; "Calculating Delta" or "Verifying Changes". We therefore need a method to display these messages as they arrive. This blog explains a surprisingly simple solution.
