I have my header in a partial which then appears on every page through the application template.
In the header I have an About link:
<%= link_to "About", 'about' %>
This works fine in most of the site.
about.html.erb is in the folder static_pages and my routes.rb has :
get 'about', to: 'static_pages#about'
Any guidance appreciated, a schoolboy error I am sure!!

<%= link_to "About", about_path %> it should work as expected. All links defined in your routes file can be found through
rake routes (or
rails routes). "Simply" append
_path to each link from the first column to get every correct url within your app.
Also if you want to link from an external source, eg. mailer, you can append these with
