The about us link on our website will not publish. It'll let me edit and save changes but when clicking "about us" it will not go to that page. How do I correct this?

Derek0596, You need to establish the link. Currently the link is null which means there is no link. The official response above should show you how to connect the pages.

You will also want to have the navigation menu on each page. You can either place it on the master page, or copy/paste it to each page.

I have been trying to publish a "Contact & Reviews" page on my site for several months. I pay the monthly charge for additional pages, but have been unsuccessful getting this page to open when someone is looking on my website. My site is www.countryaccentsflowers.com. When you click on Contact & Reviews, it says it cannot be found. Very frustrating.

Nancy1580, you need to edit the link and use the browse button to select the page to avoid typos. Your menu needs to point to a page.html, yours goes to page name. This will not work.

Peninsula Driftwood8856, use the + at the top of the link list to add a link to the menu. There are also tabs for style and effects. You can increase the spacing between links and the number of links allowed per line(max 10)

This topic actually shows you how to edit a link and display name on the menu, but to add a link, click the menu, then the links tab and the + at the top. Then follow the instructions at the top of this page to give it the name and to link it to the desired page.

When you are editing your navigation menu, search for the pages and select them in the menu and hit OK. The guide above goes into a bit more detail.

ADDING A PAGE TO YOUR MENU:
You need to add new pages to your menu? If you don't, they will not be accessible. "Highlite" the site navigation menu by hovering your cursor over the menu and left click one time > The site navigation menu settings are on the right side of your monitor > Select Links > Select "+" > Browse your files and select the page you want to add > select the file and press OK in the command box > Scroll down to the bottom of the settings menu to insert "Page Name" > the new page element will be highlited on the list > Move the new title to the desired position. 
Experiment with the Site Navigation Menu Settings tool. You can adjust font sizes and spacing.

I see the link was added, but it might be missing the .html at the end of it. The article above goes into more detail about editing your navigation menu, but when you are inside of the editor, select your navigation menu, select the Videos link, and be sure to select the Videos page in the dropdown.

innerspiritnativeartanddesign8061, The site works for me, but you have some pages on the navigation that are not linked correctly. Follow the official response above and make sure to use the browse button when editing the link. That way you will avoid spelling mistakes.

Thanks. This was very helpful and worked great as soon as I remembered to publish the entire website and not just the page!
