I found out what the problem was, it's not with the menu at all. It's the theme. When you add new images to the helloslide it was add an extra " to the link ie.
The slide adds an extra " after the _self"
Is this a bug in the helloslide. I would think that the code is generated in the back end for the slide once you add pictures to it.
