Issue: Some links in AtomSite are broken after you download a published site
Workaround: This is a known issue. A workaround is to perform a string replace for service.config, users.config, and all .xml files of the remote URL string (i.e. "http://myhost.com/atomsite") to the local one (i.e. "http://localhost:1239").
