I have literally pasted the index.html code into the about.html that i have created. That is where i get the page not found once i refresh and click on about.

<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <meta charset="utf-8"> <title>Laksakan Krishnapillai | Web Designer</title> <link rel="styleSheet" href="css/normalize.css"> <link href='http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Lobster|Open+Sans:700italic,400,700,800' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'> <link rel="styleSheet" href="css/main.css"> </head> <body> <header> <a href="index.html" id="logo"> <h1>Laksakan Krishnapilai</h1> <h2>Web Designer</h2> </a> <nav> <ul> <li><a href="index.html" class="selected">Porfolio</a></li> <li><a href="About.html">About</a></li> <li><a href="Contact.html">Contact</a></li> </ul> </nav> </header> <div id="wrapper"> <section> <ul id="gallery"> <li> <a href="img/numbers-01.jpg"> <img src="img/numbers-01.jpg" alt=""> <p>Experimentation with colour and texture.</p> </a> </li> <li> <a href="img/numbers-02.jpg"> <img src="img/numbers-02.jpg" alt=""> <p>Playing with blending modes in Photoshop.</p> </a> </li> <li> <a href="img/numbers-06.jpg"> <img src="img/numbers-06.jpg" alt=""> <p>Trying to create an 80's style of glows.</p> </a> </li> <li> <a href="img/numbers-09.jpg"> <img src="img/numbers-09.jpg" alt=""> <p>Drips created using Photoshop brushes</p> </a> </li> <li> <a href="img/numbers-12.jpg"> <img src="img/numbers-12.jpg" alt=""> <p>Creating shapes using repitition.</p> </a> </li> </ul> </section> <footer> <a href="http://twitter.com/Lux_Krish"><img src="img/twitter-wrap.png" alt="Twitter Logo" class="social-icon"></a> <a href="http://facebook.com/profile.php?id=100008150202046"><img src="img/facebook-wrap.png" alt="Facebook Logo"class="social-icon"></a> <p>© 2014 Laksakan Krishnapillai.</p> </footer> </div>

In the future post some code to help narrow down your problem.

If you linking your about page to an another page(like index.html) make sure on your index page where your links are, you substituted the '#' with about.html

Laksakan Krishnapillai can you copy and post your code snippet from the index.html and about.html(if you do not know how to do this yet, watch the tips for asking questions on the right hand side of the forum for instructions).

Your copy and paste is just displaying the output. We want to be able to see your actual code. for example

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <title>Nick Pettit | Designer</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/normalize.css">
    <link href='http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Changa+One|Open+Sans:400italic,700italic,400,700,800' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/main.css">
  </head>
  <body>
    <header>
      <a href="index.html" id="logo">
        <h1>Nick Pettit</h1>
        <h2>Designer</h2>
      </a>
      <nav>
        <ul>
          <li><a href="index.html" class="selected">Portfolio</a></li>
          <li><a href="about.html">About</a></li>
          <li><a href="contact.html">Contact</a></li>
        </ul>
      </nav>
    </header>

The link is below of the code of the HTML and CSS. Maybe there is something wrong with the server? code seems to be correct.

Make sure your index.html and about.html page are within the same directory.
