Here's a crude way to do what you want.  In your theme.php, modify the SUB_MENU button as shown:
Code: [Select]
addbutton($sub_menu_buttons,'{CUSTOM_LNK_LNK}','{CUSTOM_LNK_TITLE}','{CUSTOM_LNK_TGT}" target="_blank','custom_link',$template_sub_menu_spacer);
A better way is to read through this thread and apply its suggestions to the custom link button:

Depending upon which theme you are using, you may not have the addbutton line shown above in your theme.php.  If you have $template_sub_menu in there and you see a <!-- BEGIN custom_link --> section, modify that section replacing {CUSTOM_LNK_TGT} with:
Code: [Select]
{CUSTOM_LNK_TGT}" target="_blank
If you don't have either, copy the whole section from the sample theme's theme.php.  For more details, search for a thread that discusses modifying the SUB_MENU or SYS_MENU in your theme.
