Currently Being ModeratedMay 30, 2010 5:38 AM (in response to admwright)Try saving the website as a PDF.
There are some 3rd party app PDF readers such as GoodReader which includes options for other file types.
With the website selected with Safari on your Mac, at the Safari menu bar go to File and select Print. Select the PDF tab or button and at the menu window that appears, select Save as PDF.

Don't know how many pages she would need to use, but does Ipad Safari support "save as web archive"?
One would have to save each page.
Not ideal, but might work.
Going to look at alternatives in a couple of days, when mine arrives.

Currently Being ModeratedMay 30, 2010 11:07 AM (in response to red555)Thanks for the suggestion but WebCapture is a snapshot of a single page so no good for for accessing a full website offline. Also, the suggestion for printing as pdf also only gives a single page.
Currently Being ModeratedMay 30, 2010 1:20 PM (in response to admwright)Take a look at the dropbox app.
It's free and just might be the ticket. Certainly worth a try.
You can install in on multiple computers and there is a an Ipad app.
You can place you site folder in dropbox and it will sync with the Ipad.
I believe you should be able to access the index or home file and load it offline
Again I don't have my Ipad as of yet, but it appear to work ok syncing with another computer.
It appears to work on my Ipod, but the browser has it's limitations.
If it's an Iweb site it would need to be published to a folder.
Anyway, the free space available with a dropbox should be more than enough for your needs.3 gig mac pro, Mac OS X (10.5), 4 gig mem
Currently Being ModeratedJun 1, 2010 2:45 PM (in response to admwright)GoodReader (99 cents) lets you transfer a zip archive of a website to the iPad, then you can tell it to unzip the archive into a folder which you can then browse within the app. I'm using it to read one of my favorite websites offline. It's also a pretty full-featured viewer for PDF files (which I bought it for), so it's worth it for that too.Mac Pro, MacBook Pro, anything Pro!, Mac OS X (10.6), (...and fond memories of an Apple ][+)

Currently Being ModeratedJun 4, 2010 8:21 AM (in response to Pres Nevins)GoodReader is the one Splashed out my 59p and copied the folder with the website files via wifi. Now browsing offline with the full website, fantastic. Only complaint is that Apple do not let you sync folders via iTunes and so it is either a folder copy via wifi or a zip and extraction.
Currently Being ModeratedJan 23, 2011 12:08 PM (in response to admwright)I'm trying goodreader but for some reason it's not loading my images properly?
do i have to ZIP the entire folders and then use goodreader? i've tried only copying 1 file at a time and creating an 'image' folder with the app and copying images into that folder...Mac Mini/ Iphone, Mac OS X (10.5.4)
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 6, 2011 2:05 PM (in response to agswilson)You should try copying the entire folder where the website lives into a Good Reader folder. Pretty sure everything will work at that point.
