Different menu external link by country

Different menu external link by country

I have a main menu item of 'Dating' on my Buzz50.com site which links to my White Label Dating external URL
I have seperate white label sites and URLs for:
UK
USA
Canada
Australia
The rest of the world

How can I change either the menu item or its link dependant on the country my visitors are from?

Thanks in advance,
Mike

Re: Different menu external link by country

The easiest way to set this up is to create all these as separate menu items, right next to each other in the menu structure, then selectively hide all but the one that you want to display based on the GeoIP location.

e.g. rule 1: if country is "GB" then hide menu items for USA, Canada, Australia and rest of the world.
rule 2: if country is "US" then hide menu items for UK, Canada, Australia and rest of the world.
etc.
For the rest of the world, you can use the selector for all countries EXCEPT GB, US, CA, AU.

Make sense?
Cheers,
Stephen

Re: Different menu external link by country

So can I simply fill in the 'Quick Rules' and 'Menu Handling' tabs and ignore the rest?
I have set up the 'Config' to GeoIP Country.

Thanks,
Mike

Re: Different menu external link by country

You should be able to do it with just Config (for the GeoIP setting as you describe), plus Quick Rules to detect a particular country (or exclude certain countries for the "rest of the world" setting, and Actions tab for disabling selected menu items depending on the country. You won't need the Menu Handling tab, but you will need to set up the menus in advance in the menu manager.

Cheers,
Stephen
