Decisive Flow

I have just converted out PlanHQ blog to Wordpress and would like to link to it from the main nav. The only solution we can see so far is to put a redirect link in, which is obviously not so good for SEO and a little unintuitive for users.

Is there a way I can put the link directly to the site? It is

You could create a new page type, and override the Link() function to return the link of the page. Eg:

class BlogRedirector extends Page {
   function Link() {
      return "";

Sam, do you think it would be a good idea to override Link on RedirectorPage to link to the destination page?

Yes, overriding the Link() method in RedirectorPage would work.
