I've been reading about progress with RM5 and use on iPad. I took a small database and created a web site using RM5's web site creator. It works fine in my laptop (Microsoft XP). But, when I put it in my iPad, all I can do is look at each page. The index.htm doesn't work for searching or navigating. I can go on the internet with the iPad and look at web sites, why doesn't the RM5 web design work?

How are you putting the website on the iPad? The iPad operating system iOS does not behave the same way as Windows so it is probable that, even if you were able to transfer the entire website to iPad, the relative path structure was not preserved. If you put the RM website on a http server, then iPad's browsers (Safari, Chrome, et al) will navigate just fine.

Tom
I put the web site in my "dropbox" and accessed it with my iPad from there. When I put it on the internet as a subdirectory of another web site I manage, it works with the iPad but I have to have access to the internet, which I was trying to avoid. Right now, it works at www.belangers.us/walsh/index.htm
I was trying to get it to work without going on the internet.
