This addon allows communities to configure a category to show up on the Category List but that actually links to a custom URL.
This addon is not fully supported and may not work with all other addons. It is strongly recommended that this is tested thoroughly on staging before being used.
To have this plugin enabled, contact your CSM or Vanilla Support.
This addon does not work with subcommunities and certain other addons - you can read more about this here: Category Link Conflicts - Vanilla Success
How it works
Once this addon is enabled, you will see a new option when editing a particular category:
If a valid link is present in this field, instead of acting as a regular category the category will link to that link.
N.B. You should remove the ‘add’ discussion permission for this category for best UX.
