Hoping someone can help. All I need to to create a hotkey (or icon) on my iPhone5s...

for a webpage that doesn't have one. I want it to take me directly to Discussionist. I made one for DU, which works great, but that was a long time ago. I can't remember how I did it now, but it was easy peasy. Got my help on that from someone here, so I hope someone can remind me how. Thank you a bunch!

2. To create an icon linking to a web page...

...on an iPhone, open Safari and browse to the location your want to be the page that opens.

Tap the "Share" icon at the bottom of the screen (looks like a square with an arrow pointing up).
Tap the "Add to Home Screen" icon.
Give the icon a name like "Discussionist".
Tap on the word "Add" in the upper right hand corner.
The icon will be added to your home screen.
