Not Supported Uses Plugins Is in Beta Stage  

Description
This add-on will append a user's browser's User Agent String to new posts/threads.

Version Information
0.0.1 - Initial Release
0.0.2 - Added ability to only append User Agent Sting to posts/threads in specified forums.
0.0.3 - Fixed bug where previewing a post adds UA multiple times
0.0.3c - Fixed possible HTML injection vulnerability

Options
You can optionally configure it to append alternative text or BBCode (Such as IMG tags) rather than the literal User Agent String for specific User Agent Strings (or parts of).

You can configure it to not appended anything under certain styles

You can change the way the string is displayed with BBCode

(0.0.2) You can specify to only append User Agent String to posts/threads in specific forums.

Limitations
1. The User Agent String (or alternative BBCode/Text) is appended to the post text itself. There is nothing to stop the user from then editing the post and removing it. As such it will also show by default when quoted.

2. Turning the add-on OFF will not stop the display of User Agent Strings for past posts, it will only stop new posts/threads having it appended.

The upside of these is that there are no additional queries added to display this.

Is it possible to configure it just for special forums, not for all?

Yes you could do that buy editing the plugins for this addon and adding another conditional based on the forum ID. I can see value in this - I'll look into making it a feature. Would be especially good in say a 'site problems' forum so you can see exactly what browser is causing people issues....

I've now added the ability to specify forums in which the User Agent String will be appended to posts.

Just recently got this, was wondering if it was possible to add in a option to only show browser information if it's on an admin-defined list (ie: iphone/ipod), and not post it otherwise?

Also, can there be an option to post it at the top of the post/thread instead of the bottom?

Edit: One other thing if it's turned on and set to show the browser information, can it not show it in the preview page? Only because if I preview a post/thread multiple times before posting it I have to keep deleting the browser information unless I want it repeated over and over multiple times.

Editing the Add Useragent String to New Posts and Add Useragent String to New Threads plugins and changing the line (2nd last line)

should do it for you

Usergroup permissions and selectively applying it are a thing for a future release ...
