Linking a menu item to an external website

Hi all,

I have a question that may have been addressed here before.

How can I link a menu item to an external website, instead of a page inside my website?

Normally when you create a new page [for instance ‘Webshop’] the word ‘webshop’ will link to the actual page you created. But instead I want to word ‘webshop’ link to my other website which is the actual webshop.

Any ideas?

Many thanks,


Just use an Offsite Page for this.

I had prepared some pictures, but Henk already answered the question.
Anyway here they are.

Choose Offsite Page

Choose a name

Type the URL of the webshop in the Page Inspector


Man, I feel so dumb now! :slight_smile: As you can see I’m a novice in RW… :frowning:

I learn every day new stuff about RW unknown to me.

Many thanks to you both!!!

@dan Just a little note that the offsite URL doesn’t trigger the changed page attribute when modified.
I have an offsite page with a link and if I change the text in the link the little blue light doesn’t come on.
Have to manually change it.

No biggie but something you might like to know.


Thanks for the heads-up, I’ve scheduled this to be fixed for 7.1.1 :slight_smile:

Hi Lance. Thank you for commenting. Can you please explain this to me in layman’s terms? I’m a novice when it comes to RW, so I have no idea what you are saying. Thanks in advance. Cheers, Ben.
