How can I add an entry to the navigation bar and on the Home Page that goes to some website other than my own web? How do I use the Redirect page type?

The Redirect page type allows you to post a home page link that will lead directly to an outside website.

To add a Redirect page, go to your Update Index and click the Add New Pages button near the bottom of the screen.

When you first visit the page, you will immediately see the page's Update page.  Enter the URL (web address) of the target website, then enter your password and submit the update.  The home page icon for the Redirect page will now act as a direct link to the web address you entered.

To update the Redirect page again, go to your Update Index, then click the Update link for the Redirect page.
