The Page Links To plugin allows you to add external links to your site’s primary/horizontal navigation.

Create the Link

  1. Ensure the Page Links To plugin is enabled.
    • Click on the Plugins link in the dashboard.  You will be taken to a page that lists all the available plugins.
    • Find the listing for the Page Links To plugin and click the Activate link under the plugin name.
  2. Add a new page to your site.
    • Add a Title – this will be the link text
    • Scroll to the bottom of the page to the Page Links To section.
    • Select the radio button next to A custom URL option.
    • Add the URL of the link
  3. Publish the page

Add the Link to the Primary Navigation

  1. In you site’s dashboard, go to Appearance > Menus.
  2. Make sure you are editing your Primary Navigation.
  3. Under Pages, add a check next to the page you just created (see instructions above).
  4. In the example below I created a page titled UNC that will link to main campus.
  5. Click the Add to Menu button.
  6. The new nav link will automatically get added to the bottom of the navigation list.  Drag and drop it to reorder the site navigation as needed.
  7. Click the green Save Menu button.
