Support » Installing WordPress » 404 page when I click “About”

  • I’m a newbie. I just installed the NeoClassical theme.
    I clicked “Manage” > “Pages” and then under “About” I wrote a description for my site, Saved it, clicked “view” and it DOES show up, but with this after my domain:


    When I return to home page and click “About”, I get the 404 blank page.

    What am I doing wrong? Help?

  • would be helpful if you provided a link to your site.

    You should hit “Publish” instead of “Save”.

    I too am having this problem. For more debugging info, the link for about directs to:
    when the page is actually located at

    So without that index.php in the URL, I can’t get to it. Should I simply try to edit the theme file containing the ‘about’ page by hand (nav_menu.php) or is there a more proper way to do this?


    [ed: I did manually change the content of the file. I primarily am interested in knowing if this will break things in the future though. Will the theme continue to keep up with the pages I edit later on? Or will I have to change all future pages. It was entirely likely the ‘about’ page was initially created under a different theme. ]
