I have an existing website with html, css, js, and image files that I am trying to convert over to wordpress.
I installed a clean local install using mamp on my hard drive and created a new child theme folder that references the twenty eleven theme. My style.css, header.php, footer.php, and index.php files are customized. When I load the main page in my browser it loads exactly as it should.
Now my problem is that I am trying to create the other content pages for the website...about, services, etc.. I created an about.php file and included the header.php and footer.php as I did in the index.php. I also put in the html as well. When I try to link to this page or visit it in the browser I simply get a page not found error. This is how I am referencing my links in the menu of the header.php file...
<a href="<?php bloginfo('stylesheet_directory') ?>/about.php" title="About">about</a>
Am I linking incorrectly? Am I doing the entire process incorrectly? Really confused about how to link the remainder of those content pages...I have all of the html and css ready to go just need to know this.
Help would be greatly appreciated thanks in advanced.
