I have followed the instructions for editing a link in the navigation bar to connect a new document to "Upcoming Events" but I only get an error message when I click on that tab.

Maybe I just do it different, but I do not understand what you mean by 'navigation bar' and 'Upcoming events', nor what the 'tab' is supposed to be.

Are you trying to make a button or text string to take you to another page?

CREATE A LINK TO ANOTHER ELEMENT ON A DIFFERENT PAGE: You can select the URL from the address line and paste it into your Link command box. If the image or text on the page has an anchor link, you can select that element and the URL will include that specific element. Using that URL address will target that specific element. For example: Select any element on the page and produce an anchor link for that element. Save and publish. Use your browser, navigate and select that element in your site. You will see that the URL address has changed to include the anchor linked item. Copy that URL and paste that as your target link in your Link command box in Image Settings or Text Settings.

Produce an anchor link for the desired element, save and publish. Using your browser, navigate to the page and select the element. You'll see that the URL has changed to include the element's link address. Copy that URL and paste it in your Settings Menu Link command.

Hi Wendy2422, I see you have created the link inside of your navigation menu, but it looks like the *.pdf file is still unpublished inside of your File Manager. Go to your 2017-2018 folder inside of your File Manager and publish the *.pdf.
