.htaccess Redirect visitors to a mobile/smart device version of your website


Scenario: I have a wordpress website and I want to point mobile visitors to the mobile version of this website I created.

Remember to change m.mysite.com to your domain

You will recognise the first section “# Begin WordPress” to “# End WordPress” as the first lines of the .htaccess code in every WordPress website.

# BEGIN WordPress

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

# END WordPress

Options +FollowSymlinks
RewriteEngine on
RewriteBase /

# prevent looping
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^m.mysite.com$

# if the browser accepts these mime-types, it’s definitely mobile, or pretending to be
RewriteCond %{HTTP_ACCEPT} "text\/vnd\.wap\.wml|application\/vnd\.wap\.xhtml\+xml" [NC,OR]

# a selection of user agent tests. Check for an updated more comprehensive list at the time you intend to use this code
RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} "sony|symbian|nokia|samsung|mobile|windows ce|epoc|opera" [NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} "mini|nitro|j2me|midp-|cldc-|netfront|mot|up\.browser|up\.link|audiovox"[NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} "blackberry|ericsson,|panasonic|philips|sanyo|sharp|sie-"[NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} "portalmmm|blazer|avantgo|danger|palm|series60|palmsource|pocketpc"[NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} "smartphone|rover|ipaq|au-mic,|alcatel|ericy|vodafone\/|wap1\.|wap2\.|iPhone|android"[NC]

# rewrite rules here
RewriteRule ^(.+)\$ http://m.mysite.com/$1 [R=302,NC]
