Linking an External URL

Linking an External URL

  
I am having a problem creating a link to an external site.  I have used a link widget and in the destination have selected common/external URL. Under that in the URL I have pasted the URL I wish to go to but the box is still red.  It says parameter 'URL' has no description and that it is expecting an expression.

Thanks for the help!
Hi John,

Can you share a screenshot of the error?

Thanks,

Hi John,

The URL receives a text parameter and as such you need to escape your string.

You need to surround your URL with double quotes for it to work "http://xxxxxxxx [Your url]".

Hope this helps,
Guilherme
