I added a page called Store & it's in my navigation at paragirldesigns.com. Is there a way that I can have it to were when people click on Store from the navigation that it takes them to http://paragirldesigns.tictail.com/ ? I tried editing my navigation and using < a href="http://paragirldesigns.tictail.com/" target="_blank" >Store< /a > in the label, but it didn't work (I attached a screenshot of beofre using the above code and after using it). Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello KDC,

The navigation facility no longer supports HTML so the calling of an external site doesn't work by that specific method.

You have 2 options that come to mind:
  • A redirect which swings over to the external site via a menu page on your site. You can open it on a new page but your back key will not return you from the external site to the original. It's quite similar to the way you attempted.

  • Bring your other site into your Yola built site using an iframe. This will display the other site within the body of the page that you can create. There is a sense of continuity depending on how you design it.


If you want specific instructions for either of these, please leave a message here.

Hello KDC

Please find the steps for option 1 which Gop described in this tutorial: Links that redirect when you click on a menu tab.
