Oh it shows on the tag it says "about.index" instead of "about.html"... Maybe that was why? :)

I am following the tutorial for how to add a new page to a website. As instructed in the video, I start by creating a new file called “about.html”. Copied the code from index.html (home page) over to the new page. In the nav of the (index.html), I changed the selected class to the About list item, etc.

When I review the work in the Workspace, the paragraphs I now write in the "About" page are all white so can only be seen if I highlight the area. Why is this? I can not figure this out.

How about.. posting your code here altogether? Or you may checkout <a> tag of your html file.. it should be something like (when you have "about.html" file on the same folder)

<a href = "about.html"> about </a>
