How to redirect visitors to your mobile website using htaccess

If you have a mobile website running on a separate sub-domain from your root domain then you can write the following code in your .htaccess file to redirect the visitor if they are using any of the mentioned mobile devices to browse your website. Please feel free to add more to the user agent list in the code if such a need arises. You will need to substitue “xyz” in the sample code with your actual root domain.

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} "android|blackberry|googlebot-mobile|iemobile|iphone|ipod|#opera mobile|palmos|webos" [NC]
RewriteRule ^$ http://m.xyz.com [L,R=302]

//error_reporting(NULL);
$string = trim("This is a reversed string");

//find length of string including whitespace
$len =strlen($string);

//slipt sting into an array
$stringExp = str_split($string);

for ($i = $len - 1; $i >=0;$i--)

How to sort multi-dimension array according to given price — February 6, 2014

How to sort multi-dimension array according to given price

This code is very helpful for beginner in PHP. To break multi-dimension Array into one single array and then you sort it according to your need, In my scenario, I wanted to Sort it with price High to Low and Low to High so I use array_multisort().

and you can use its sorting type flags, for more details look below at code and sample code link.

$list_box_contents = array(
            array(

             array(
                    "price" => 4.99,
                    "params" => NULL,
                    "text" => "demotext","prices" => 4.99,
                ),

             array(
                    "price" => 4.79,
                    "params" => NULL,
                    "text" => "demotext","prices" => 4.79,
                ),

             array(
                    "price" => 5.10,
                    "params" => NULL,
                    "text" => "demotext","prices" => 5.10,
                ),

             array(
                    "price" => 4.20,
                    "params" => NULL,
                    "text" => "demotext","prices" => 4.20,
                ),

        ),
     array(

             array(
