When I received the response via email the single quotes got converted into the equivalent hex code so when I pasted in the code, the menu stopped working on the site fore desktop browsers. However, I see now that that was a problem with the SMTP emailed delivered from the site.
I no longer use the Learn More button, so I modified the code as shown below to work on all large buttons on the site. The if..then statement opens up anchor tags in the same window and all other links into a new browser tab. It is working very well now.
var url = jQuery(this).attr(‘href’);
if (url.indexOf(‘#’) >=0) location.href =url;
else window.open(url, ‘_blank’);
