Solved [Solved] Make forum redirect to another site

Post by Rok May 17th 2009, 6:37 pm

Hey guys...
    I remember that there was a way to accomplish what I am asking. I want to know ho to make a forum redirect to another site; so, if a user clicks the title of the forum, they will be redirected to another site. I want to add a 'Forum of the Month' feature on my forum, and this information will be extremely helpful.

Not possible to redirect by clicking the forum title.
You can give link in the forum description.

rock what i usually do for this.
is either put the forum link in a image link on the home page message.
Or you can create another forum and just name it like a dot/period(.)
then in the forms description have the link or have your banner image with the link in it that will redirect you.

like here i just did an example here.at the top you will see the forumotion support form banner. if you click that it will bring you here to the support forum.Now what you do is set the forums permissions for people to view and read. just don't allow them to post if they happen to click the dot/period(.)

the reason i use the dot is because you have to name the forum something.
but most of the time people will over look that and just see the banner or link you have in there.

anyway check it out you'll see what i mean.

Oh Kirk, that's a splendid idea. Thanks to all of you guys, and I'll take up Kirk's idea; and instead of using a ".", I'll use a "•".
