Direct Menu/Sub-Menu Links - you can now link a Menu or Sub-Menu Item direct to a URL/website address instead of having to have a page behind it. For example: if you want to link someone to the Bluebook or Luxury Property Selection Magazine, instead of having someone visit a page where you link them, you can do this straight from when they click the Menu/Sub-Menu Item. To set this up, go to Site Map in the top left hand corner of your screen, then click on 'Add External Link' in the pop up window.
