Banners : linking to external URL

Banners : linking to external URL

Postby kpryan01 » 28 May 2019 14:37

Hi Howard,
My customer has three separate seasonal stores and wants a smooth way (i.e. direct) of linking to them. I thought of using banners in the sidebar but the link produced is always relative to the store. E.g I want to go directly to http://www.domain.co.uk but the actual link is kpr-bbxcs.uk/shop/domain url that doesn't exist.

Chrome shows the HTML code as
<a href="www.domain.co.uk" rel="external" title="spring catalogue" target="_blank">spring catalogue</a> that looks great.

Hovering over the actual banner in Chrome shows the link URL as kpr-bbxcs.uk/shop/www.domain.co.uk that doesn't exist.

Is there a setting that I am missing?
Perhaps I have misunderstood how this is supposed to work.

Any pointers would be welcome.

Thanks, Kevin

Hi All,
I meant to post this update a while ago. The URL problem was caused by the hosting company's handling of external URLs. If you get the same problem I suggest that you raise a support ticket with them to change their settings for your domain.

Regards,

Kevin
