Navigation Problem on Galleries

I've been working on a new Backlight website and thought it was ready to start building out the albums and then discovered a problem on the menu on the Galleries page.   When I click on the About or Contact buttons it says page not found on the site. 

I noticed on the menu on the other pages where it works fine the navigation button goes to "terrancealexander.com/?page=about" but on the galleries page it tries to go to "terrancealexander.com/about/".  The same is true of the other buttons on the menu bar.  Did I miss a step along the way somewhere?  I tried changing the menu navigation on the galleries page to match the others but as soon as the site refreshes it reverts back.

Re: Navigation Problem on Galleries

are you using the same menu set for the galleries page album set template as you are for the rest of the site?

Re: Navigation Problem on Galleries

as far as I can tell - not sure where I would assign a different menu to the album set template.

Re: Navigation Problem on Galleries

You would do that in the page template that governs the album template.
But if you've not created any other menu sets then it's a moot point.
If it's not a menu set issue, then it's probably a .htaccess file issue; something Ben or Matt may need to look into.
But you could try updating the album files:
backlight > Publisher > Update album files

I tried updating the album files as suggested - still the same result.  I also emptied the cache with no change.  I'll wait to see if Ben or Matt have an idea.  Thanks.

Re: Navigation Problem on Galleries

It sounds like the htaccess setting in Backlight isn't working properly for your host.
Who are you hosting with?  Can you email me a Backlight admin login so that I can try and alter the htaccess setting so that page links work within galleries?
