Adding custom links to NetIQ User Application

Working with a client that is using the SSPR 3.0 tool with NetIQ Identity Manager.  Within the User Application, it has a link for challenge response, but does not link out to SSPR, it uses the internal pages.  We wanted to have this link go over to SSPR instead.  It wasn't as intuitive as I would have liked to simply create a link in its place.

I went into User Application as the uaadmin, clicked on administration, then on page admin.  I selected the Password Challenge Response portlet, then selected "select contents" on the page.  I removed the item it was using and added "Message" and saved back out to the main screen.  Now, I needed to click "arrange content", edited the "Message" element, then selected "View/edit custom preference" for the message.  At the bottom, there is a checkbox for "View source".  I put the following as my message:

<META HTTP-EQUIV="refresh" content="0;URL=">
// -->
Magic voodoo happening in the background to take you to the SSPR
page, if the voodoo master is going too slow, you can use this link:
<a href="">SSPR Home</a>
