This will depend on whether the person will click on the link from a regular computer, or from a mobile device. A mobile device should automatically redirect the person to the mobile version of the guide, but if you need them to view the mobile version from a regular computer, you'll need to share the mobile link.

The link to the mobile version of the guide will work in either of those cases - here's what it looks like:

Let's say you have the following "normal" link:

(Even if a guide has a friendly URL, it also has a PID - click on a tab within that guide to find out the PID.) 

Just add _mobile after the word content. So the mobile version of that guide can be accessed at:

The same logic applies if you want to link to a specific page within the guide. For example, if you had the following "normal" link:

Then the mobile version would be:

NOTE: We recommend using Chrome or Safari to view the mobile version of your guides on a non-mobile device. A regular computer browser/monitor utilizes different settings than mobile devices, so results will vary from browser to browser. :)
