  • You can make buttons open any web page - not just nodes in your own tree. The trick is to have the button open a Link Node.

    1. Click Tools, then Add Node.
    2. Select Link Redirect as the node type.
    3. Enter the URL to link to. Direct Link is set by default, as this will avoid pop-up blockers.
    4. You can also choose to Open the Page in a New Tab.
    5. Once you save the link node, assign a button from another node to this new link node.

    When your website visitor clicks this new button, they get redirected to the URL you specified. Plus, this action is tracked as a part of their Zingtree session.
