How should I setup some top level nav items in a dynamic menu if I want them to go to an external page; rather than a Muse page?*
Thanks for any help...
I've also thought about using the BC admin to setup a redirect; and I'll probably go that route untill I hear of an easier/better method.
Create a dummy page in Plan view where you want the external link to appear in your menu, then right+click on the page to get the Context menu and from the "Menu Options" item choose "Include Page without Hyperlink". Then go to the menu item in your menu and use the Hyperlink control in the Control panel to assign the external URL.
Is this answer still correct? For some reason after the latest Muse Update, the hyperlink box is greyed out when you try this method. Can you make another suggestion how to assign external links to your main navigation? Thank you!

Could you please a share screen shot of how the hyperlink option looks like after you follow the same steps?

OK, so how do I do this with a submenu item? I have a top level menu item "Our Sites" which drops down a list of sites to which I want the sub menu items to link. (Opening in a new window.) The site has well over 100 pages and I don't relish the idea of building a complete manual menu.
I'm having difficulty adding external links to my dynamic menu, too. I followed the process shown in the link but when I get to the last step, there simply is no hyperlink option; nothing between the Effects control and the anchor button. One difference is that the selection box around my menu item is a dashed green line as opposed to the solid blue line shown in the video. Thanks.
Sounds like its a default menu that you're trying to link to an external URL. You need to use a Manual menu type in order to be able to Hyperlink it. Also, the green selection box just means that the menu is in a Layer with the color option set as green.
