HI Tarmaan,

Do you have an external forum, or are you wanting the forum you put on your site to show in the menu?

Please let me know as there are two different answers involved.

Hi, thanks for the extra information.

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.
