#2465 closed enhancement (invalid)

Page should also have a Link type

Description

The sidebar contains a navigation outline of the Pages. It would be useful to have Wordpress be able to include external links in that navigational outline.

Example
There are these pages, and this is displayed in the sidebar:

Home
About
Credits
Example
Copyright

It would be useful if within these pages, that Example points to http://www.example.com/ instead of an internal page with page_id.

Solution
There should be three types of posts:

1) Post
2) Page
3) Link

Where Link is a type of Page, and it will go directly to the designated link. Current workaround is to display the links list that already exists within Wordpress, but they are seperate from the pages navigation. Combining the two will result in more integrated websites.

Another possibility is to create two types of links: Link and Include, where the latter one will include a php file before or after [or before AND after] the page text. This way one can integrate guestbooks, or add a dynamic contact form, etc., while keeping the theme layout and Wordpress functions (template tags) available (but after implementing this, people who want to use this functionality will need to change some code in their themes pages.)

There is a plugin available that solves exactly the problem you are talking about:

If this doesn't solve your problem, please come back and outline what else you need to have happen.

Thanks,
