I have created a webpage and exported it to a local directory to test it before publishing it online. I have multiple menu pages which all seem to be working correctly. However, when I wish to go back to the home page (index.html) and click the link on the menu bar, it goes to the directory rather than the home page. I read through the forum posts here and found a few similar but not identical problems, but checking the "include index filename" didn't fix it and it is listed in the menu and does seem to be an active link.
I would appreciate suggestions before I go live in the next few weeks.
