Beth2695, you need to edit the navigation to point to the correct pages. Current your links all go to URLs of either your home page or homestead. Use the browse button when editing the link and select the page from your site to link to.

I got all the pages but the home page to work. When I highlight the nav bar them go to links, I do not see that file so do I do that one to http//lizartcollections.com?

That will work, but in the page list, your home page is called index, so you can also do it that way.

The "home" page shows up on the "prices" page in public view. The price page shows up correctly in sitebuilder.

The rest of my website updates but for some reason one page will not when I publish. Everything looks the same on all pages.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled links not working.

I somehow broke my website today. I added a page and renamed some of the links on the site navigation menu settings and now when you go to my website and click on a menu title you get the error "Page Not Found." Help! I checked the link file names in the menu settings and they all seem right. I am very new to this so I'm not sure if what I am looking at is correct or not. Any advice is welcome!

All my pages keep going back to one page; I've checked the links and they're all correct (about is linked to the about page, etc.) but it keeps going back to the home page (all of them). What gives?

Make sure to edit the links and get them the way you need, and then to publish your entire site

You can select your navigation menu, and the up or down arrows will allow you to change the order of the links.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Page is not being published.

I have made a change on one of my pages in Site Builder plus that is not publishing. I can see it in the preview page and it works correctly (it is a button that calls up a form). The page that appears after publishing shows up and works correctly. If I go to the site it says 'Page not Found' (I can be reached at 704 453 9636)

Your link points to page04, but your page is called registration. Update the link and it should work.

Your Gallery link points to a page called gallery, but the page name you have is apparently photo-gallery. Please try updating the navigation link

I've had this page up for awhile but out of the blue we're getting the error message, that the page doesn't exist or has been moved. Check my URL. I've checked my link, does the browse thing. When I preview the page in site builder it's there. Got the website for real, and the error message still shows up.

If I am finding the correct issue, the problem is the navigation menu and selecting your Employee page. Be sure to select the page in the list and then publish your website.

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.
