Hello Zane,

You can do this by creating a link in your menu if you wish, then having a re-drect command taking you to the other web-site.

The code for this is:

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

The number 2 is the delay before the re-direct occurs. I would suggest that you set this to say (15) seconds to try it out then change it down to 1 or 2. The reason is that the code begins to work immediately in the builder and if there's some problem then you don't have time to edit the code.

It's a well used piece of code.

Good luck.

OK,

That's quite easily done.

Create a new page with a name that you wish.

Place the above code on your new page.

Please do any thing else before you place the code like interim decoration if you wish. Your referred to page will probably be of a different design so it's not a bad idea to state that your user will be re-directed rather than surprising them. It's a bit of personal choice on this matter, this is generally placed on the re-directing page as a short statement and the re-direction time should be long enough to allow your users to read this information.

If you own the other site it's not a bad idea to include a return link back to your site.
.
is this the info you're afer Zane?

Hi Peter

I don't know if I'm doing it wrong, but it's not working.

Ok Zane,

1. Create a new page: Give it a name eg Contact2
2. Drag an HTML widget into the new page
3. Paste the code into this widget. The URL should be exactly the name of the site and page that you wish to re-direct to.

If you wish to give me the URL and the page name of the other site I can give you the specific code. That's no problem at all.

That's spot on Zane. Now can you tell me the URL of the page that you have created to paste it into?

Hi Zane,

Did you remove the leading <!-- and the trailing -->? I forgot to mention those . Sorry I presumed. This protects the code from GetSatisfaction trying to interpret the code.

Zane,

if you ever need to change an aspect of this re-direct you will have to delete the page. This is because the re-direct time is too short to allow any editing. It's not a problem though as really the only thing on it is the re-direct code.!
