Auto switching theme on iOS and Blackberry



  • Hi all,

    I'm working on my own theme and i'm trying to locate the code that automatically switches the theme to 'pfSense' when accessing the WebGUI from an iPad/Blackberry.  I would like to get the standard themes working with these devices, I believe the problem is because of the mouse hover event in the CSS doesn't work on iPads because they are touchscreen.

    I'd like to comment out the code that does the theme switch so I can do some testing on an iPad.

    EDIT: I found the below on line 76 of guiconfig.inc but commenting it out doesn't seem to work:

    $apple_ua = array("iPhone","iPod", "iPad");
    foreach($apple_ua as $useragent)
    	if(strstr($_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT'], $useragent))
    		$g['theme'] = "pfsense"; 
    

    EDIT 2: I found the code in head.inc  :)

    That's a fairly old version of the code, but yeah that's the part.

    It actually works fine on Android which is odd because Android's browser and the iOS browser are both webkit.

    Though the theme may work, the other theme does tend to handle better on small screen devices anyhow, it's really easy to miss the menus when they drop-down.
