Hi Perko,

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:
<!-- <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.

(Please note - only use the HTML code within the -- >)

Hi Perko,

You use the same steps to redirect to a page on your site.
For example to redirect from your homepage to Page2 on your site:

<!-- <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="2; url=http://mysite.synthasite.com/page2.php"> -->
