I would like to see if it's possible for a mod to have multiple download sites. For instance, I host a mod of mine on another site (AFK Mods), and I want to provide that link along with the Nexus link, in case the Nexus is very busy. Tried using external URLs to do so, but it didn't work. Is this a possible feature to implement for the wiki?

External URL should work fine. If you post the link here, I'll check it out.

https://afkmods.igua...ive-adventurer/ When I added it to the Disease Descriptions page, I didn't see it. Where are ExternalURLs placed in mod pages?

When you are on the mod page, go to PAGE TOOLS->EDIT WITH FORM in the menu. The first tab (Mod Information) has a label at the bottom called 'External URL'. Click the [Add Another] button just below it, fill out the two fields for 'Link Label' (i.e. Mirror), and 'URL'. It will then show up next to 'Links' on the mod page, just below the Forum link.

Oops. I forgot to add the code in to display the External URL's. It's showing up now.

The Unique Region Names mod has two Nexus URLs, one for the main mod and one for the Dragonborn addon. How should this be handled in the Mod page; I used the external URL for the addon but I'm not sure this is correct.

The addon should become a mod page itself since it has its own Nexus page.
