Hello,

For some time now i have used this method http://forum.yola.com/yola/topics/off... to have external links in my menu and it has worked great. Recently however we switched to a new layout and now any links using that method is off center with the rest of the links. Any information on how I can fix this? Thank you!

Hello Cory,

Thanks for your patience. I do see the issue of which you speak. There is a way around this. Instead of adding it to your Page Manager,

I would drag over an HTML Widget and add a redirect code. Here's the code you would need to add:

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="2; url=http://webdesign.about.com">

Please note:
* "2" is how many seconds it waits before it redirects - you can change this number. Since the page will redirect in your Sitebuilder, we recommend using a higher number to ensure that it works correctly as the page may redirect too quickly for you to make changes.

* "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.

Thank you Sanja for this option. While I have used this method in the past I am not a huge fan of it. However I will probably end up using it to get my Menu's back in line.

Thanks for using this workaround. We do have a feature coming out where it will be very easy to add external links to your menu tabs! I'm not certain when it will be released but it's definitely coming :)
