User-agent

Post by Dabroz »

Why shouldn't be default $_SERVER['HTPP_USER_AGENT'] field in php_posts? Like in http://forum.php.pl" target="_blank for example. I know that it's very simple thing but there won't be nessesarity to do it by yourself each time you want it. Maybe it should be on/off.

Y'know:

And the point of storing the user agent string for each post would be what exactly?

I can spoof my user agent if I really wanted to, so it doesn't actually tell you anything.

The useragent can be checked through sessions otherwise there's no real need to put checks elsewhere.

I know that user agent can be set as you like. But it gives some nice info about forum users ;)

... But there is no use in taking it apart from statistics so you can go "oooo! look! XXX uses XXX"

I use Opera... but i dont see how other people can care or how it should affect my experience at a forum.

It was just an idea. Whatever everyone likes. In my (rival ;) forum there's such a field in DB. Because I like something... like this :) that's all :)

I think that'd be pretty nifty as well ;) Pretty easy hack though...
