Answer

When you add a new page to your guide, you can make it redirect to any URL you want!

If you do set that option, anyone who clicks on that tab (or sub-page ;) will be brought to that URL.

Add New Page screen

  1. Go to Add/Edit Pages > Add/Reuse Page.
  2. On the Add Page screen, fill out the form:
    • Page Name: give the page a name
    • Description: optional, will appear when users hover over the tab/sub-page.
    • Position: Choose whether you want to add the page as a top level page (a tab) or a sub-page of an existing top level page.
    • Redirect URL: Tick the first checkbox to show the URL field. Add the URL for the page/guide here.
    • Leave the second checkbox unchecked.
  3. Click Create Page.

Note:

  • If you click on the tab/sub-page while in edit mode, you will see a note telling you where the page redirects.
  • If you click on the tab/sub-page in Preview mode or on your live site, you will be redirected to that page.
  • Redirect links always open in the same window.
    If users would like the link to open in a new window, they can right click and choose to open the page in a new tab or new window.
