Add external website as page

Menu items and page content

In your role as editor, you can create pages with a link to an external website in the app menu. When the page is opened, the linked website opens directly in its own window.

Navigate to > Navigation > Pages
to see an overview list of the pages that already exist.

Click on the New button to create a new page.


A dialogue for creating the new page opens:



1. Choose page type

To create a page with a link to an external website, select the page type "External Url".
This page type allows you to link to an external website. When the page is opened later, the linked website, for example a subpage of your congress website, will open immediately.



2. Name the page

Your entry in the "Name of menu item" field will appear in the app's navigation menu. The name should:

  • be short (approx. 30 characters)

  • be expressive and unambiguous

3. Insert a link to the external website

In the "Url*" field, insert the URL of the website you want to link to.
Select _self as the target in the "Target" selection field so that you do not leave the app (recommended default setting).

4. Save entries


  • Create - to be able to edit the page afterwards

  • Create and return to list - to get to the overview list. There you can adjust the position of the page in the menu. See: Sorting content in the Conference App

  • Create and add another - to immediately create another page.

5. Changing a website link

To replace an existing link, add a new URL to the page and save your changes.

All pages appear by default as a separate menu items in the app's navigation bar.
However, they can also be assigned as a subpage of any menu item page.
See: Creating a menu item/page with subpages

Optional: Add menu icon

If your new page is a stand-alone menu item, add a menu icon to be displayed in the navigation bar.


See: Adding/replacing a menu icon

Optional: Set access permission

If you want to make your page accessible only to logged-in users of the app, go to the "Access" tab to set an access permission for the page.
