I have set-up a website through iWeb, and I've set-up a page for a blog. What I need to happen is have people directed to my Wordpress blog when they click on the link on my website.

But here's the problem: Right now, when people click-on my blog link on my website, it directs people to go to www.XXXX.com/blog.html. I can't figure-out how to direct iWeb to send people to www.XXXX.wordpress.com.

The way it stands, I've had to place a hyperlink on the "blog" link of my webpage for people to click on to send them to my Wordpress blog.

I'm desperate. Can someone please help?

Not sure if I fully understand, so let's see if I am clear:
1) You have a website.
2) On the website is a link to a blog- www.XXXX.com/blog.html.
3) You actually want them to go to- www.XXXX.wordpress.com
4) You changed the link on your web page, so the link now points to- www.XXXX.wordpress.com

I guess I don't see the problem. :thumbsup:

I would like for people to automatically be taken to my blog whenever they click the "blog" link...

Instead, they are taken to a blank page in which I have placed the hyperlinked text "Please click here to visit our blog." They then have to click on that box to be directed to my Wordpress blog.

It looks a little unprofessional, and I would love for people to be automatically be taken to my Wordpress blog.

By your description, I'm assuming the the link to your blog on www.XXXXX.com is not editable?

If this is true, then one way of achieving what you want would be to put a meta tag on that blog page, which would re-direct them automatically.
<meta http-equiv="Refresh" content="0;url=www.XXXX.wordpress.com">
Stick that somewhere to make it automatically re-direct to "www.XXXX.wordpress.com".

Just out of interest, how hard have you searched for a way of doing this? Tying something like

html automatic redirect

into Google yields ways of doing this quite easily.

Hope that helps.

That would make sense. It would be sort of nice to know those things ahead of time, wouldn't it? :thumbsup:

I'm sorry for any confusion...

But I can't see how to insert this meta tag in iWeb...

Ok, let's try again. Are you saying that you are not able to change iWeb code (which contains the original link)? If that is the case, the META tag goes into the page that you have your " "Please click here to visit our blog" link on.

How did you get your code into iWeb in the first place to link to your blog?
