We found a nice WordPress plug-in that makes it easy to add a link to a remote website.
Basically it can turn any Post or Page into a direct link to another website URL (web page address).
The plug-in is called “Page Links To” and it allows you to point WordPress pages or posts to a URL of your choosing.
As the developer states: Page Links To “Allows you to point WordPress pages or posts to a URL of your choosing. Good for setting up navigational links to non-WP sections of your site or to off-site resources.”
