I think we should be able to make our own navigation tabs, because i have two sites that go to my own domain, one that goes to http://contactjames.tk and the other that goes to http://support.contactjames.tk
but the problem is the home button on http://support.contactjames.tk goes to http://support.contactjames.tk and not http://contactjames.tk

so i think we should be able to add tabs in our navigation bars were we can enter our own links

Hello James,

It sounds like an automatic redirect of a menu tab would accomplish this for you.

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">
-->

Note: remove the <!-- and -->

"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.

Hope this will help!
