Getting Started - Version 3

Complete the following 4 steps in your PHP environment to start getting information about requesting mobile devices.

Step 1 - Download the Zip file from Sourceforge.

Step 2 - Unzip the file into a directory in your PHP server.

Step 3 - Then add the following code to your PHP page:

<?php
require_once 'path/to/core/51Degrees.php';
require_once 'path/to/core/51Degrees_usage.php';
?>

It is recommended for performance purposes that these lines are included after a session_start();

Step 4 - Get the details about the device that is accessing your site with code like this:

<?php
if ($_51d['IsMobile'] == TRUE)
{
    //Start coding for a mobile device here.
}
?>

A working example website demonstrating the API can be found in the example directory.
