    We are evaluating SiteFinity for use as an internal staff portal and one of the requirements is that the main navigation menu not only provide links to other pages on the site but also provide links to external web applications.  We have added a Navigation control to our top level template and configured it as a drop down menu.  As we create pages, they appear in the menu just fine.  But how do we add a top level "Applications" node to the menu and create entries beneath it that link to our external applications?

    Hello Ken,

    Out of the box you can add external links only to the root level. If you want to have child of an menu item that is external page you should use a custom template of the Navigation control. Inside this template you should have a BaseDataBoundControl. You can subscribe for ItemDataBound event of the control and inject the child node.
