    When creating a page that is a link to an external page, I paste the link in the box next to External page location and then click on "Save Changes"..However, the page then redirects to the external link I just pasted within the same browser window I am in using Sitefinity. I am using IE 6 and Sitefinity 3.6. I can then never get back to the page's Property Tab because it keeps redirecting me to the actaul linked page.

    Also, I need to link to an external page location link such as this one and it is saying it is invalid - I am sure because of the comma's? But that is the actual link.     http://www.irs.gov/formspubs/article/0,,id=96151,00.html

    Thank you, Laura

    Sometimes I can trick it by creating a page first and publishing it, then changing it to an external linked page.  The behavior is erractic and hard to pinpoint on my end what exactly is causing the automatic redirct of the brwoser...

    Hi Laura,

    1. The redirection the the external page seems to be browser issue. Can you reproduce it with higher version of IE 7 or 8. Also, everything seems to be working fine under FF.

    2. You can remove/change the RegularExpressionValidator with ID="ExtUrlRegExprValidator" from
    ~/Sitefinity/Admin/ControlTemplates/Pages/PagePropertiesInsert.ascx
    and
    ~/Sitefinity/Admin/ControlTemplates/Pages/PagePropertiesEdit.ascx

    Kind regards,
