Hello bobroetker,

I did recently reply to your email in regards to this request, but am happy to reiterate it on our forum.

It is possible to cause your menu link to redirect automatically to an external URL if you are prepared to use a 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=">

Please note:
* "2" is how many seconds it waits before it redirects - you can change this number. Since the page will redirect in your Sitebuilder, we recommend using a higher number to ensure that it works correctly as the page may redirect too quickly for you to make changes.

* "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.

Certainly let us know if you struggle with this!
