Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- Refine uses a hook-based architecture and provides a unified interface for your needs regardless of your library or framework of your choice. However, based on the provided knowledge sources, there isn't a specific example or guide on how to redirect a user to an external website using Refine hooks in react-router-dom. Refine does provide a useGo hook, which can be used to navigate to a specific resource's page in your application regardless of your routing solution. But this hook is typically used for internal navigation within your application, not for redirecting to an external website. For external redirection, you might need to use the native JavaScript window.location.href or the window.open() method, depending on your specific needs. For more information on how to use Refine's hooks, you can refer to the Refine's General Concepts documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/guides-concepts/general-concepts#hook-concept). For more details on routing in Refine, you can check out the Refine's Routing Guide (https://refine.dev/docs/guides-concepts/routing/). ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

Hello @BlackBearFTW, react-router-dom doesn't deal with external navigation. you can use html anchor element
<a href="https://another-website.com/">
another website
</a>
<a href="https://another-website.com/">
another website
</a>
` or you can use browser API
window.location.href = "https://another-website.com/"

// or

window.open('https://www.google.com', '_blank');
window.location.href = "https://another-website.com/"

// or

window.open('https://www.google.com', '_blank');
