    The link to a webpage isn't working

    The link to the Work page won't click through to that page from the home page or subpages. The weird thing is I can type in http://www.daniellebardgette.com/work.html and I'm sent to the page. I've tried several times to relink the file in the code, but the issue won't go away. Any suggestions would be appreciated . .

    Hello texasstar,
    Your markup on that menu looks like this right now -
    Code:
    <ul id="nav">
    						<li><a class="work" href="/work.html">WORK</a></li>
    						<li><a class="services" href="services.html">SERVICES</a></li>
    						<li><a class="about" href="about.html">ABOUT</a></li>
    						<li><a class="contact" href="contact.html">CONTACT</a></li>
    					</ul>
    Remove that bit I've highlighted in red and see how it works for you.

    Hi Excavator,

    Thanks for taking a look. The forward slash was only contained on the home page. The code on the subpages didn't have the forward slash and they still won't load the work page. I updated the home page to and it also still won't load the work page. Yick.

    I've tried loading the website in Chrome. No dice on the page loading or in Safari either.

    In reviewing where the work.html page it is contained in the same folder as the other subpages and home page are located.

    Any other suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you!

    change your attributes and values around like so

    Code:
    <ul id="nav">
       <li><a href="work.html" class="work">WORK</a></li>
       <li><a href="services.html" class="services">SERVICES</a></li>
       <li><a href="about.html" class="about">ABOUT</a></li>
       <li><a href="contact.html" class="contact">CONTACT</a></li>
    </ul>
    I know that seems crazy but that should do the trick

    Eberdome thank you! The plot thickens though. I tweaked the code per your suggestion and uploaded it. The weird thing is Firebug in Firefox says the code is still:

    <ul id="nav">
    <li><a class="work" href="/work.html">WORK</a></li>
    <li><a class="services" href="services.html">SERVICES</a></li>
    <li><a class="about" href="about.html">ABOUT</a></li>
    <li><a class="contact" href="contact.html">CONTACT</a></li>
    </ul>

    while in Safari in developer it says the code is:

    <ul id="nav">
    <li><a href="work.html" class="work">WORK</a></li>
    <li><a href="services.html" class="services">SERVICES</a></li>
    <li><a href="about.html" class="about">ABOUT</a></li>
    <li><a href="contact.html" class="contact">CONTACT</a></li>
    </ul>

    Double yick and the work page still won't click through.

    Temporarily deleted the home page. The rest of the site is still there.

    I had a programmer friend look over it and something with the jquery is preventing the Work button from being clickable. The site is going live with those sections deleted. I'll resolve the conflict later.

    Thanks for all the help though!

    Excavator saw your post after I posted my post.

    That was the issue! :-)

    That gallery.js you had was directed at ul, li, in general.
    There are other gallery.js files that are a little more specific and would not affect your ul#nav
