Getting 'page not found' when putting site live

Hey all,

I purchased a template online for a portfolio I am trying to create.
The site works perfect when I open it in local.

But when I try and get it live it says this:

Any ideas? thanks

You’ve not added any build command. Depending on your setup which you’ve not explained, you might need some additional commands to build the site.

It’s been a while since I uploaded a new site to Netlify…
What am I missing here?

Could you help us with more details like your site name and repo (or the template link)?


Template link: Cavani - Personal Portfolio HTML Template by Marketify | ThemeForest

You need to go here: Netlify App and change the base directory to html.

Also, you need to rename index-particle.html to index.html.

You’re awesome. It is live now -
I can only see the contents of the site when I shrink it to a smaller size than desktop? Any ideas? thanks

That’s because, this div:


is overlapping everything else:


That’s set to display: none on smaller screens.

It’s working - I took it away and display: none the entire thing. (the div)

Youre great. thank you so much
