Default [Q] How to move apps to external sd card?

I have the Samsung Galaxy SII T989. It's rooted with Chameleon rom on it. How can I move the apps to my external sd card and not my internal sd card. The internal sd card is 11.5GB and my external sd card is 29.5gb. When I try to move apps from like Link2SD, etc. It installs them to my internal and not my external.

Use titanium back up to move to SD card. There's a move to SD card option, to PROVE it works here's some screenshots from 5 seconds ago lol

I already tried Titanium Backup and still doesn't work. If I try going into settings and click 'Move to SD Card" it moves it into the internal storage. Its acting like the internal storage is the sd card. I posted few screen shots in to what I'm trying to say. When I plug my phone into my pc, it does show up my internal storage and my external sd card separate.

Well that's the same for most phones. I have the main memory in my phone. Then the internal sd card, along with external, there's no way to choose where is there? Couldn't you just use root browser go into system apps and move the apk to your SD card? I've done that before, worked good for me. Or use clean master and move it. I've done all of the above across almost every manufacture. I've worked with sisters LG's my HTC, dads samsung, friends moto, and all those methods have worked perfect O.o I will see if I can find anything tomorrow, lol gotta be up in like 5 hours xD

I myself run cm 11.... In the menu when you're looking through all apps, if you click on it there should be a option to move it. Or at least for me there is....
