Link to external site in navigation

  • Under Consideration
I have seen the majority of the questions about persuading Yola to link directly to an external site through a link in the navigation bar and am well acquainted the ideas already suggested. I have been redirecting traffic to a subdomain of my domain (, at the link to 'Blog') for the last few years but for me it is far from fast (I have already set the delay to 0).

It would be reasonably helpful if it was to become possible to link directly to an external site as I would like run some subdomains of my domain so that many different people can edit their sections of my site. Please can you try to introduce a feature that allows me to link to an external site through the navigation?

Hi wkerry,

That would be a great feature to add to our site builder, I agree. I have forwarded this request to our product development team for consideration (I'm also going to change the nature of this post to "Idea").

However, right now, the HTML redirect that you are using is the only way to get this done on a site built with Yola.

Thanks very much for getting back so quickly and for considering the point.

Very impressive efficiency!

I have read that Google doesn't like external sites in your main navigation. How true that is only Google Really Knows, but it's something you might want to think about.

Very very true....They don't like a user to be surprised they are leaving one site for another.....If that happens to me on a site I never visit that site again.

How is this going? Have the yola development team come up with a way so that we can make external links away off the menu bar yet?
