Hmm, can you provide a link.

The href is normally the place where you define the new dir.

I think it is because it is the "root" element, that is why it does not
have an effect.

Please try not with the site element but another. Taken from
http://criaturitas.org/ e.g.
<site label="CDK" href="" xmlns="http://apache.org/forrest/linkmap/1.0"
tab="hom e">
  <news label="Club Deportivo Kriaturitas">
    <start label="Noticias" href="start.html" description="todo sobre
las ultima s noticias"/>
    <start label="Entrenamiento" href="entrenamiento.html"
description="todo sob re el entrenamiento"/>
