Hi all,

I'm wondering if anyone has experienced the need to change the target 
for default menu links on their UVM Template websites. For instance, I 
want to include a link in my default menu to an outside site, but I'd 
want it to open in a new window. I can't simply use target='_blank' 
because of the nature of the defaultmenu.html.

My only other solution is to create a small application with Javascript 
and PHP that opens a new window based on the URL passed to the php file, 
and then maintain the current page. This will work, however, the focus 
of the different windows becomes an issue that needs to be resolved.

I am curious as to whether there is a property in the template that 
allows me to easily change the target of such a thing.

Tyler
