the following code inserted into a Widgetbot widget or a HTML widget on the blank page you will use for the jump page with the address you want it forwarded to inserted in the place after the (http:) until the (.com) with no space between the (:) and the (//) will make a transfer from one of your websites pages to another of your website by means of the built in navigation menu button on the first site.

For the return trip back to the original site simply put its URl in the place of the other and reverse the steps.

also remove the spaces between the (< META
HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh"
CONTENT="0; URL=http: //YourNewPageURL.com">

(="0) is the number of seconds before redirect. Be sure to include a link on the page with this code to the new page for folks who's browsers don't work with the above meta tag. You could use a script but, non javascript enabled browsers wouldn't be redirected.

Thank you for this code.

Unfortunately I can't seem to get it to work. I'm using one of the new templates "Squeaky Clean".
I followed your instructions but the clicking of the menu button simply takes me to its corresponding blank page.

Wondering if I'm missing something here?

I created a new page
Placed an HTML widget within
Copied and pasted your code and then replaced the spaces as directed plus the URL that I wish to arrive at..

Thank you

Hi Peter,

There's a space in the above code between < and meta which shouldn't be there. Can you try this code:

<!-- <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="2; url=http://webdesign.about.com"> -->

2 = the seconds you want it to take (you can also use 0)
Please ignore <!-- and -->

Hello Marije,

Thank you for the response.and solution

I had taken the space out between " but what I had also done, was followed the example line by line. Looking at your direction I can see that it can be all on the same line. That worked.
