Hi,

Is it possible to make a navigation link a link to another webpage instead of just another page in synthasite?

Thanks,

Hello,
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">`-->

**Make sure not to include the < ! - - at the beginning and the - - >at the end. This is there to make the code inactive on this page so you can see it.

"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.

Regards,
Emmy
