I trying to use the redirector page to send users to another website. The url that I need to send them to has 3 variables in the query string. Eg

The problem is that the redirector page converts the & character into & ->

This is not recognised by the destination website and just goes to their error page. How can I preserve the & character?

I do not get this problem, when creating a Redirector Page.

Are you still having this problem? Are you just trying to get this page link to come up in the menu?

Make sure you put in http:// into your link name.

I see this is fixed in 2.4 but I am still running an older version on the site affected.

Anyone have any idea how to fix this?

I am running 2.3.7 and 2.3.6 and there is no problem there.
