I'm pretty much a noob iPad user so.....
I'd like to have a small web site on my iPad and be able to access it via Safari without any internet connectivity.
After doing some research I'm pretty well convinced it can't be done - there is no visible file system so there is no place to put the folder containing the web site files. I tried putting the folder on DropBox but I couldn't get a link to a local copy, only a link to the on-line version. I've also discovered that DropBox on the iPad seems to have local copies of some things but not of all things. I tested by turning on airplane mode and then accessing items in Dropbox on the iPad. Some things were available and some were not.
I'm out of luck, right?
PS: Maybe a statement of my real objective would be useful. I want to display a photo album on the iPad, which includes navigation, thumbnails and photo captions. I want to show the photo album on the iPad in a place where there is no internet or cell phone service. Maybe there is an app that can create a photo album which resides on the iPad?
