External Link on Menu Bar

Hi

I want to create a node on the menu bar that links to an external link.

When I add the node in the web.sitemap file, I address the url as http:\\.............

By adding the http:\\ stops the link showing up,

Any ideas?

hmmm... you might need to add it directly to the page.

Solution:

create a dummy page say : dummy.aspx

In the page load of that page place the following code:

Response.Redirect("http://"www.codeplex.com/clubstarterkit");

Then you can use the dummy.aspx in the web.sitemap and use the web.config authorization issues on it
