Hello! I am trying to redirect something on my navigation bar to a COMPLETELY different website. For example, if you add a new page titled "Forum", then when you click on it, it should take you to an entirely new website.

How do you do this? I could only find one other person who asked this and the answerer confused me ;p

Hi,

You would need to add some redirect code to your page in-order to achieve this.

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

"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.
