CSS How to Make a Website Adding Pages to a Website Add a New Page

Unable to Open "About" section. When I click on the link it gives me a "File not Found" Error.

I have copy and pasted my index html into the new "about" file, but it doesn't work.

Can you include the code for the page? It will help anyone viewing your question to give you a better answer. Without seeing the code it would be a guess as to whether your link is not quite correct because of spelling or something like that.

thanks for your input but i figured it out.

There seems to be some bug with workspaces. I resolved the issue by

  1. Copying the text inside index.html
  2. Deleting index.html
  3. Creating a new file called index.html
  4. Pasting all of the HTML back into it.

This also resolved an issue which when I clicked on preview it would ask which file or folder I wanted.


I can recall some issues that I had when I started with the course working with HTML, CSS, etc. For me, I think that it was my Windows 8.1 laptop has some quirks that caused some issues with Workspaces. When I switched to Ruby on Rails I could not do anything on that system so I moved everything over to my old laptop with Linux Ubuntu. Workspaces worked great but that laptop had issues with the videos - hardware too old, maybe.

I watch the videos on the Window 8 system while using the Ubuntu system for programming. All is not perfect but it is much better.

Workspaces is so buggy and quirky that I'm just going to use Notepad++ to do the coding.

I wish you the best of luck with that. It can all be very frustrating when it does not work.

Going great with Notepad++ At least when things don't work now, I will know it's my code and not wonder if it's some bug or quirk with workspaces....
