Redirecting mobile users from

Friday, Apr. 16, 2010

We're trying something new in the main site - if someone accesses the standard SCU site using a mobile device (limited to devices that use Javascript), we're displaying a small dialog box that offers to redirect the visitor to the equivalent content on the mobile site.  This is now in place for the SCU home page, press releases, course catalog, directory, campus map, library room reservations, and a few other pages.

If the visitor selects the mobile version, we save that preference in the client's browser (for two weeks).  The visitor can switch back to the standard version of the mobile site's content by following a "view standard Web page" link.
