Hi there. Been playing around with ss for a little while now, and have some questions regarding navigation schemes:

How can I include external links in a Menu control? Example: i have the below tabs in a <%control Menu(1) %>:

home -> ss managed
learn -> ss managed
search -> external site
blog -> external site
company -> ss managed

(Please note: I do not have the option of rearranging the tabs.)

Also, I need to create a footer menu. This menu will appear on all pages and have a selection, but not all, of the items in the Company section. How best to approach this?

I have some ideas, but they seem very clunky to me. Any suggestions appreciated.

Create the page in the CMS as a 'Redirector to another page; type, point it to the external URL you want and place it where you want it in the CMS tree.
