About content customization according to device type

Studies have shown that user behavior is different on mobiles, tablets, or desktops. With If-So’s device type condition, you can easily optimize your website’s content experience for each device. You can choose to replace some of your page content, replace the whole page, or add new content on certain devices only.

Adaptive design solution

Unlike responsive design, If-So’s solution is a server-side solution. This means that the content you set to be displayed on certain devices will not be loaded on others. This results in faster page loading, and a convenient way to manage and optimize content.

How can your site benefit from device-based content?

Usage examples:

  • Display a click to call button on mobile devices, and a phone number on desktops.
  • Combine with the schedule condition: show mobile visitors a click to call button during opening hours, and replace it with a contact form when the business is closed.
  • Prevent the loading of sliders and other long loading content on mobile devices.
  • Create a whole different version of your homepage (or any other page) and redirect mobile visitors to the new, optimized page.

Possible Use Cases

Display a click to call button on mobile devices

Suggest downloading the right app for the user’s device

Which content can be customized using the device type condition?

Same as with all of If-So’s dynamic triggers, any of the website’s content can be customized. This includes titles, texts, images, calls to action, buttons, and more.

Redirect mobile visitors to a new page

If-So’s device type condition can be used to redirect mobile visitors to a new page. The following JavaScript code creates an auto-redirect to a page of your choice (make sure to replace with the URL of the page you want to redirect to). To create the redirect on mobile devices only, create an If-So trigger with a Device Type condition, and paste the code into the relevant content field (See step by step instruction below).

  • Does If-So work with server-side and WordPress caching solutions?


    Whether you are using a caching plugin or server caching, you can navigate to the plugin settings and enable the “Page Caching Compatibility” option. With the option enabled, dynamic triggers will be rendered in a separate request that will take place after the loading of the cached version.
