I build my site with silverstripe.
I'm try to add link to an other external site build with silverstripe. If do that throught CMS in section "link -> another web site" I'm able to connect to external site. If I copy the same link in my theme/my_theme/ file I can't link to that. Is possible to do that or I must create link inside CMS?

Hmm okay? So you're trying to use the tiny_mce editor to link to another website and it fails?

Well are you making sure your link starts with http:// when linking in the editor? Other than that, there is no reason why it shouldn't be linking. Oh, are you using Internet explorer? There is a bug with the link editor and it fails in IE. It's a javascript issue and will hopefully be fixed in the next release.

As for adding the code in the template, are you copying a proper html link tag in the template and running ?flush=1 at the end of the URL that uses the template? <a href=">Link name</a>

There should be no reason why it wouldn't link to it.

Sorry, I found the problem: It's necessary / at the end of url address.
Thanks for reply me!
