I created a web page that collects all my favorite links hat I host within Dropbox. Works great with my multiple home computers but my iOS devices can't read the pages.

Anybody know any tricks or apps that will fix that?

Should work fine - the browser in iOS is like any other.

Do you have any code that you'd like to share so that we can look at it? There may be something wrong with the coding.

Problem is you can't navigate to the dropbox from inside iOS Safari, and trying to "open" the file from inside of Dropbox doesn't push the file to Safari. Doesn't know what to do actually, just shows the file as unreadable.

I built my site with iWeb. I used to host them on Cox (until Cox eliminated that service) and iOS Safari opened them just fine.

You can host websites out of Dropbox if you so choose. Just put the website in your Public folder and use the corresponding public link to it.
