External web pages read within your web site

Is there a way that when you link to an external website, that it can be done within your Home page or other static page... ie.. so that after reading that external page, the user could hit the "HOME" button or something like it and be back on the site

Use an iframe, like this (haven't tested, but you can google "external site in iframe": [code]
[/code]

You would put that inside of the post/page area of the post/page edit screen. The other option is to use a lightbox for the external page.

You need to edit your post or page and add it while in HTML mode (the two options on the top right of the edit box area).

Have you considered customizing some RSS feed to include full content instead of just a link or description? Read this... http://www.problogger.net/archives/2010/12/03/everything-you-need-to-import-and-display-rss-feeds-with-wordpress/ and http://perishablepress.com/press/2009/04/26/import-and-display-rss-feeds-in-wordpress/ I use RSSImport a plugin found at http://www.wordpress.org/extend/plugins to make many links at http://www.epicurus.com (the top 4 under the feature slider. In my case, I want my readers to go to the "external" link, which is actually a different WP installation on my site. You could structure the full content to show for each post. However, you won't get each post on a separate page unless you create a page/post with just one RSS imported feed. WP has Simplepie built in for some time now, so you have many options on how to format RSS feeds into the site.

This doesn't seem to work for me for some reason ... what I'm looking for is in situations where I reference an exerior web page (ie.. linking to a research article), that there is a quick/easy way to return to the Home Page of my website. Suggestions?

You could try this and see if the settings can be changed to include the full article in your site: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/dirtysuds-embed-rss/
