My synthasite web site is Techy.tk. I also have a Ning website at Rivahgeek.ning.com. I would like to put a tab on my site called "Rivahgeek". So that when I click this tab, it will take my to my other website. Can this be done? If so, how?

Hello,
Yes, it is possible to cause your menu link to redirect to an external URL if you are prepared to write a little bit of custom HTML.

Here's what you need to do:

1. Create a new page with the name of the site you want to link to.
2. Drag and drop a HTML widget onto your page.
3. Paste this tag into the HTML editor:
``

"2" is how many seconds it waits before it redirects - you can change this number
"url" is the URL it redirects to, so, replace the URL in the above tag with the one for the site you want to link to.

Hope this helps,
Emmy

Sorry, I forgot to put the bit of code in that would allow you to see the example. So below you will see the example that starts < - - , inbetween this and the - - > at the end is the example code.

1. Create a new page with the name of the site you want to link to such as myweb
2. Drag and drop a HTML widget onto the page myweb
3. Paste this tag into the HTML editor:
<!-- `<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="2; url=http://webdesign.about.com">`-->

When you paste that code in, leave out the stuff before the first < and after the last >

"2" is how many seconds it waits before it redirects - you can change this number
"url" is the URL it redirects to, so, replace the URL in the above tag with the one for the site you want to link to.

Give this a try and let us know if you need more help.
