Add external link to top links in Magento

Posted: December 6, 2014 in How To?, Magento

Here is how you create and external link in the top links menu in magento:

<reference name="root">
<reference name="top.links">
    <action method="addLink" translate="label title">
        <label>example</label>
        <url>http://myotherexampledomain.com</url> 
        <title>example</title>
        <prepare/>
        <urlParams/> 
        <position>100</position>
        <liParams/>
        <aParams>class="top-link-example"</aParams>
        <beforeText></beforeText>
        <afterText></afterText>
    </action>
</reference>
</reference>

Note that you have to unset prepare so the site url is not appended…
