Yesterday afternoon we released a new mobile page type: RSS. This will let you add an RSS feed page to your mobile site. The feed could come from inside your network or from outside, and you have an option to open links in a new window or not. We've done our best to make the feed look good, but some of the formatting will depend on what's included the feed. Ideally the links in the feed will be mobile friendly.
What's up next?
Right now we're working a mobile advertising solution and on adding Groups to mobile. We'll provide more information on each of those as our development progresses.

Love that this is all taking place and Kudos to the Ning team.
I'd like to also put in a nudge for Events.
to me all this are not necessary until there is chat on the mobile site
Great work Phil & Team!
Quick question, I've enabled the Mobile Beta for http://acutedisseminatedencephalomyelitis.org/ and it works great with one exception. When I go to Google and search for the site, and then click the Google link, it gives me this error page (attached). How do I fix this? it's a big issue cause a lot of people come to our network from Google. Thanks!
Hi Scott and Nicole,
Can one of you paste the url of the search link or the followed link that leads to this 404 page?
I got this all to work. What I did was fetched all the www.networkname.com/m urls (every extension) on google webmaster, set the crawl rate to high, put a link on the home page of the site announcing the new mobile site linking it to www.hersocialnetwork.com/m and it started working about 3 hours ago. Soaring eagle helped with link part, he rocks! I am not sure what helped really, I messed around a lot!
Hope this helps, I fetched also my home page url again and all links associated!
thanks so much Nicole! I'll try it out.
Thanks so much for helping Phil!
Here is the link from google: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&safe=off&client=safari&a...
Unfortunately because Google personalizes the results, I can't see a link to your network there. Can you post the actual network link that returns a 404 on mobile?
we're in the process of replicating Nicole's fix. But we didn't do anything and after a few days Google found it. So the error is that Google doesn't know there is a mobile site.
thanks for the help Nicole & Phil.
