    I'm new to iPad, and am wondering if there is a way to move a small website onto an iPad. I've created a small website that consists of a folder, an index.htm file, and several related html files. I would like to be able to port the folder over to an iPad, and be able to view the site locally through Safari.

    Any suggestions as to how to accomplish this will be greatly appreciated!

    Regards,

    Of course, the reason for wanting to do this is because I do not always have access to Wifi, and need to be able to view this site (probably 100 html pages) on demand.

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions you might have.

    There's no way to cache/save purposely HTML files/folders on an iPad for off-line viewing. However, the iPad's Safari web browser can convert any web page to PDF using a bookmarklet and then you can off-line browse this using iBooks or another PDF viewer. However, of course, any hyperlinks wouldn't work, so this is probably not what you're wanting. Maybe other members know of a third-party browser that can accomplish what you want but I'm fairly sure that Safari cannot.

    Well, a simplistic solution is to just re-do the site as a single PDF document, with the individual pages arranged consecutively within the document.

    Not exactly what I was looking for, but it will serve my purpose, at least until I can figure out another, more flexible, alternative. ;-)

    Thanks for the input!

    Yes - I'm sorry - I'm not familiar with the other browsers so hopefully one of them can save HTML pages for off-line use and handles the hyperlinks....
