If the response is True, then the user is using a mobile/tablet device. On the other hand, if it returned False, then the user is not using a mobile/tablet device.

  1. Edit the Homepage file

    It can be front-page.php, index.php or any page template you selected to show as Homepage.

  2. Paste the Code Snippet

    In that page, go to the line where you want to write that paragraph and paste the below code:

if ( wp_is_mobile() ) {

    <p>This paragraph is shown to mobile users only, desktop users won't see it </p>


To clarify, this will now show this paragraph to the Mobile users only. Moreover, it’s not limited to the paragraph, you can show specific buttons, notifications, posts etc to the mobile users with this snippet.
