Today while do some work on the new LifeTrak Personal Training site we needed to add an external link to the custom menu. Simple enough task but what if we wanted to the link to open up in a new window?

We are proud to announce the launch of the new AFScott.com.
The AFScott team approached us when they realized it was time to upgrade from their current site which had been done years before. The biggest change they were looking for was for the new site to be put into a content management system so they could blog more and update content themselves. As we do with most of our clients, the site is a custom theme built on WordPress.Read more

When you tried to reach their feed you would receive the following message:
