Redirect Navigation Item to another site

  1. On the left hand side of the screen, under administration, click on “Navigation.”
  2. Click on the blue button that reads, “Add New.”
  3. In the “Title” section, type what you want the navigation to say, for example “GVSU YouTube.”
  4. Under “Content,” make sure the drop-down menu reads “Redirect to another website…”
  5. For the URL, make sure http:// is selected and type in the remaining part of the URL. For example, “www.youtube.com/gvsu”
  6. “Target” determines where you want the page to open up. If you want the page to open in the same window, have the drop-down read “Open in the current window: ‘_self’” If you want the page to come up in a new window when someone clicks on this navigation item, then select “Open in a new window: ‘_blank’” in the drop-down menu.
  7. If you want the navigation item to become active or inactive on a specific date, click the checkbox next to your selection and type in the date.
  8. Once you have done all this, click the blue “Submit” button and you have created your navigation item that will redirect to another site.
