Hi Simon,

Not sure if this is the best way in doing it, but when I need to do this, I create a simple .php file with a re-direct. 

Put the following code in a file called "index.php":

<?php header( 'Location:' ) ;

and then place that index.php in your storyline export file. (ie. pathToStoryline)

Then you can make it a link like: 

This will automatically redirect to whatever you put after "Location:" in your .php file.

A side note to this is that you need PHP running on your web server, but most do.

Hope this helps!
