Redirecting of active pages from the PRIMARY NAVIGATION

Hi, I would like to redirect from a page that is in the PRIMARY NAVIGATION page, inside a folder, directly onto another INDEX page.

What I'm trying to do is get around the fact that you cannot put INDEX pages into FOLDERS, so that they appear in drop-down menus in the navigation menu in Squarespace 7.0.

So I thought of creating a FOLDER with empty pages, that will only be used for the menu and that if clicked on would immediately redirect straight from the PRIMARY NAVIGATION menu page to the INDEX PAGE.

Kind of like this:


PRODUCTS (folder) - Clicking on this will show a drop-down menu with these 3 dummy pages with URLs:

  • xcrafts.com/product-1-redirect
  • xcrafts.com/product-2-redirect
  • xcrafts.com/product-3-redirect

If one clicks on them from the drop down menu, it will take them directly to one of the NOT LINKED "INDEX pages":

  • xcrafts.com/product-1
  • xcrafts.com/product-2
  • xcrafts.com/product-3

This way I could have a link from a folder, directly onto the index pages.

I have tried this:

as well as this:


but the redirects of active pages only work if the pages that I want to redirect from are not in the PRIMARY NAVIGATION menu.

How could I do it so that the redirect works also if the pages I am redirecting from are in the PRIMARY NAVIGATION?

Thanks and Merry Christmas!
