How do I add a link to another site into my navigation?

Begin by locating the URL you wish to use as a link on your site.  In this example, we will be using Google.  Then log into the CMS and get into Author mode on the index page you'd like to register the link to.
  1. Click the Properties and Actions icon (Page and Template icon) and select "Register an External Page"

  2. Use the drop down box to select where the link should be housed. That is, select which site will contain the link in the navigation to this URL.  This should by default be the your own site.
