    Step 1
    Launch the Safari Web browser app on your iPad.

    Step 2
    Navigate to a iPadForums.net.

    Step 3
    Tap the "Export" button next to the address bar, which is identified by an icon of a box with an arrow pointing to the right.

    Step 4
    Tap the "Add to Home Screen" button.

    Step 5
    Type in "iPadForums". This will appear beneath the icon on the Home screen, then tap the "Add" button.

    Thanks, I just did that a few minutes ago and placed it in the dock where I used to have the app icon.

    Had already done this before reading this post, but it's a good idea to post the description.

    How about making this thread a sticky (or whatever it is called :oops:)?

    It would help me so much if you could take a picture of each step. By my address bar, there is only the refresh arrow...so I'm stuck! Thank you! :) I can't even figure out how to load a pic to show you... I need the URL number? What happened to insert from camera roll? Yikes! :)

    The button is at the left. Then you'll see Add to Home Screen. The next page/popup looks like my second screenshot. You can change the name if you want, just tap the upper field. Then tap "Add" afterwards.

    That is Apple's version of the 'share' icon. Unfortunately, everyone has a different version.

    Dear Johanna,
    Please bare with me, can you attach a picture that shows this arrow? I'm sure I'll realize what you're talking about...but, right now, I'm having difficulty! On the left of my address bar, I only have the left go back arrow. The right arrow is not hi lighted :(
