i've been using for some time getsimple cms and i'm rather happy with it.

it's simple to use, lean and still i manage to manage a little site with it...

i'd like to use it for another site i'm setting up, but there is one thing that bothers me: i'd like to be able to add in the navigation a link to the forum i've installed... and i don't see a way to do that.

... the menu manager is there: for the person(s) who created it, it should ne be hard to add it :-)

i could also try to program it*, but i would first need to know if it fits in the plans for the future development of getsimple cms


* well, i really would not to have to program it myself, since i should concentrate on the content of the platform...

P.S.: i don't know why, but i managed it to put it in the wrong section...
check this:

there is a chapter "internal/external links"
hi connie!

i think that it's the solution!

... even if it adds lot of features that i don't need (yet)


p.s.: greetings from a dyslexic who clicks on a link starting with "r" in the right lower corner of a message and is sure that it's the reply button...
Another way to do it without plugins, if you only need to add links at the beginning or end of the menu, could be:
Find the get_navigation(...) tag in your template files. It should be between <ul>...</ul> tags. Insert a <li>...</li> with your external site link before or after the get_navigation call.

Example: in Innovation theme, file:

<!-- main navigation -->
                <nav id="main-nav">
                        <li><a href="">GetSimple CMS site</a></li>
                        <?php get_navigation(get_page_slug(FALSE)); ?>
                        <li><a href="">Google</a></li>

(On most other themes it'd be in template.php)
Thanks Carlos. I'll give it a try once I figure our what I'm adding...
