The Category as Link addon allows admins to configure a Category to display on the main All Categories page that has a custom URL.
Enable the addon
🛑 IMPORTANT: This addon is not fully supported, and may not work with all other addons. It is strongly recommended that this is tested thoroughly on your staging site before being used. Refer to the Conflicts section below for more information.

How it works
Once this addon is enabled, you will see a new option, called Redirect Url, when editing a Category:
If a valid link is entered in this field, users will be taken to the provided URL when clicking the Category.
At this time, the HTML Links addon overrides the way Category links are rendered. Because the Category as Link and HTML Links addons have conflicting implementations, they cannot be enabled at the same time, so choose the functionality best suited, and most needed, for your community.
