Redirect Drop Down Menu Links To Created Pages Rather Than Categories Rate Topic   - - - - -

 

Posted 24 October 2015 - 02:08 PM #1

Hi,

I would like to redirect a category link via the drop down menu of the Header. However I only have file editor in admin and I cannot find the file on server. I have read a little online with many saying the head file is kept within /skins folder, but I do not have a skins folder. 

 

To clarify, I have created a page for a brand of product we sell via categories in admin panel. This then appears in the drop down menu of website. However, I have also created a different page for the said brand, with its own css styles etc, not via the admin panel but separate coding. This has a different URL. I wish to redirect the link in the drop down menu to the new URL.

 

Thanks

You should just specify full URL (with http or https) for the top menu item. Just tested and it works

The link I need to change is a sub-category , I believe the link you sent works only for a 1st level category? ie. one down from root level? The category I need to alter is 3 levels down from root level. I know it is simple but need help.

 

thanks

Can anyone assist with how to alter the href link of a sub menu item? I would anticipate that I need to do this via the files rather than the admin section.

The link can be specified for the menu items of any level. Please try. Note that you should build submenus manually in this case. Do not use automatic submenu generation feature
