Hi there,

It is possible to cause your page to redirect to another page if you are prepared to write a little bit of custom HTML.

Here's what you need to do:

1. Create the 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:
``

"5" 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.

Let us know if you need any other help!

Hi There,

Sorry about this, seems as though Marije's code didn't show up. Here's the steps again:

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">

"5" 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.

Hi there - you may have to delete the page and create it again. Make sure that you have typed out the line of code beforehand so that it doesn't automatically redirect. Thanks for letting us know this is happening!

Do you mean that the URL doesn't work at all, or doesn't work when you put it in the code?
