Has anyone used cascade to create and manage a mobile version of a website? If so, what methodology did you use?

I can find very little information about cascade's abilitiy to serve a mobile website and would like to speak with someone who is currently managing a mobile website via cascade.

Thanks
Bill

    Gernerally, you will need to add a new Configuration to each of your Configuration Sets, this could be named Mobile/Handheld, whatever you would like basically. If your regular site has .html extensions, you will want to make the extension for this new configuration something like -mobile.html so that you do not overwrite your main content with your mobile content. So your homepage for your mobile site would be /index-mobile.html if the original was /index.html.

    I would suggest, before adding your Configuration, that you make a very simple template for this Configuration, one with very few images, simple navigation, and your basic content region.

    Depending on how your site is already set up you can generally use the same blocks and formats for your main Content region. You will just want to have a very simple navigation and overall page design.

    I hope this helps.
