Hello everyone! I am having trouble navigating throughout my pages when working locally. I don't own a domain or remote server yet so I was wondering if I could use my links to navigate through different html files like that. Thank you!

Great thanks so much! I just realized that I had placed the <a href> </a> in the wrong place so that's why it wouldn't work!

Not exactly sure what you mean but by having trouble navigation 'throughout' my pages??

Links are just links, which connect your pages:

<a href="about.html">About</a>

<a href="products.html">Products</a>

<a href="contact.html">Contact</a>

Hey there thanks! I think I found it here: How to link files, documents, or specific elements within or across your web pages in Dreamweaver.

I just wanted to test my links in Dreamweaver which apparently you can do by Right-clicking on the link and selecting Open Linked Page.

If you mean you can't click links within Live View, you could change your preferences so DW follows links.

Go to View > Live View Options > Follow Links Continually

It's generally better to use the Open in Browser function if you want to verify your navigation though.

Right click the document name in the Files window and choose Open in Browser (the old Preview in Browser) to open your page in one of your local browsers. That will allow you to move through your site as designed, it will also give you the most accurate representation of your pages during development.

If you're having issues with something else, you'll need to be a little more specific about what's happening and how it differs from what you expect to happen, or what you want to have happen.
