One of the frustrations for me, being a coder and all that, is the inability to “View Page Source” of a website from my iPad. Today I’m going to show you how to fix this annoying issue — legally and completely for free, no hacking, jail breaking, or anything similar involved. It’s as simple as copy + paste!
Step 1: Go to any website, any website at all. For this demonstration I’m using Google.
Step 2: Bookmark whatever website you’re using.
Step 3: As you bookmark the site, delete the name and change it to, “Show Page Source.”
Step 4: Once you’ve saved the bookmark, go to your bookmarks tab and tap “Edit.”
Step 5: Tap on your “Show Page Source” bookmark. Delete the URL and paste in the following:
Then tap “Done.”
Step 7: Go to your bookmarks and tap on the “Show Page Source” bookmark.
Safari will open a new tab with the page source for whatever site you are currently on when you tap the bookmark.
So now you’re done. You only have to do this one time. From now on when you want to view the source of a page, simply visit the website and click on your “Show Page Source” bookmark.
