Configuration

When image optimizer AND device detection are enabled DNN will not send images to devices that are too large for their screens to display. Query string parameters can be added to image URLs to automatically size images to improve performance.
Check this box to enable device detection.
Check this box to share usage data with 51Degrees.
Check this box to automatically update the device data file. When enabled the site will check 51Degrees for new versions of the device data file and automatically apply them without recycling the application domain. Enhanced data is needed to support this option.
The bulk of the device data is retained on the file system. Small portions are loaded into memory when needed. Reduces memory consumption. When disabled memory mode is used where the device data file is loaded into memory. File mode uses the least amount of memory.

    Client side responsive web design (RWD) involves sending all content to the browser and letting the browser resize and adjust for the device. The 51Degrees Client Capability Provider enables the option to control content server side including sending different images, navigation and content to different device types. This reduces page weight to mobile improving performance, presents an optimised user interface, ultimately enhancing the user's experience.

    Over 85% of blue chip companies use device detection, including eCommerce, Media, AdTech, Finance and Travel sectors. Read more for case studies and ideas.

    Image Optimisation

    Ensure precisely sized images are sent to web pages by adding querystring parameters to image URLs to return precisely sized images for the screen. For example; <img src="Empty.gif" data-src="/image.png?w=auto"/> or /DesktopModules/Admin/FiftyOneClientCapabilityProvider/Images/Optimization.png?w=300

    Images larger than the device screen will automatically be shrunk before sending.

    Device Detection

    For Web Administrators

    • Retain desktop optimized content such as Flash or big screen videos on the same page as smartphone and tablet content.
    • Use hover mega menus to optimize rapid navigation for mouse and keyboard whilst using a responsive menu for touch screens.
    • Redirect users to optimized pages for Smartphones and Tablets.
    • Enhance Google Analytics with information about screen size and input methods.

    For Developers

    • Turn page content on and off based on server side rules. For example; Request.Browser["IsTablet"] to understand if the requesting device is a tablet.
    • Access device capabilities from JavaScript with http://HOSTNAME/51Degrees.features.js
