Thank you so much! This worked very well and now I have my pages being found by the server. This gets me one step closer to finally having my website up and running!!!
Thank you but, I want to avoid wordpress as of right now. It's something I considered but, decided against it. Perhaps later on I will use it.
I understand I have the 404 navigation pages, unfortunately. I'm posting here to try and see if somebody knows how to pinpoint what I'm doing wrong to fix it. Luckily, I haven't submitted to any search engines yet; my website isn't up and running and I'd like to wait until I get these kinks out before submitting it.
I appreciate the suggestions and, upon looking at Concrete5, it looks like something that I really am going to check out for later uses. Unfortunately, I really want to try and learn css and html right now. I feel it'll help me be able better to manipulate things such as Concrete5 and wordpress later down the road.
