Solved Header/icon re-direction not re-directing.

Post by frankc on September 13th 2011, 11:00 pm

This is what I have done. Logged in as administrator. Gone to :- Display>Homepage>headers and Navigation>Add a customised menu
Put the following entries in:- Menu: Village Website
Picture: Linked this to my icon and it works fine.
Text: Welland Village Site
Redirection URL : www.wellandvillage.co.uk
Rights and Display boxes all ticked.

I saved it. Closed down and re-opened the Forum

But when you click the Welland Village line/icon all that happens is it re-directs back to the forum front page.

What am I doing wrong please?

Thanks in advance!!

I put the redirection link as the homepage???? I wrote the redirection url as www.wellandvillage.co.uk how can that be the forums home page?? What do I change to get the button to actually go to www.wellandvillage.co.uk?

Certainly. Here you go. The Button/text I am refering to is the one next to the Union Jack with the text WellandVillage Site. It should take villagers back to our village website but all it does is go back to the forums homepage.



and this is a copy of the entries I made and where I made them

Thanks for your help.

Whats the redirection URL you added? Its the homepage link you added. Hence, it takes you back to the homepage.

Am I thick or what???

Let me try and make this easy.

I have put up a link to www.wellandvillage.co.uk Got that????????????

It does NOT TAKE ME TO www.wellandvillage.co.uk it takes me to the Forum homepage.

So WANT IT TO TAKE me to www.wellandvillage.co.uk NOT go straight to the Forum.

If I am doing something wrong fine, but to simply say you want it to take you to a home page and thats where it goes is rubbish, it DOES NOT DO THAT. Despite what the link actually says. It does not take me to where the url says just back to the Forum. I simply cannot think of any other way to say it.

So is it me putting in the wrong code in the wrong place or is the forum faulty in some way??

Use this URL http://www.wellandvillage.co.uk/ in redirection URL. It should work.
