are the other link working well ?

in your 'technology' link, you have a 'space' at end, maybe a mistake.

one more thing, you don't need to add an event with 'a href' , it's already in.

when i remove js code. Links are working but when I add js code,links are not working.Any idea why?

1 solution

What i want is ,when i click on navigation , i want that navigation'c background to be changed

I'm not sure I understand fully, do you mean that when a navigation link is clicked you expect the link to the current page to have a specific background color? If so, that's do-able but it depends on what you're using to serve the pages. If it's server-side rendering (ie. Spring, ASP.NET, Django, PHP) then you probably need to add a flag in the server-side which you pass into the page model which will then set a class on the links. If it's client-side rendering (ie. Angular, React, Vue) and you're using JS routing then I think each of these frameworks have their own attributes/processors (ie. Angular has routerLinkActive[^])

I'm not seeing any evidence of using a framework though, these look like static HTML pages with some Javascript so I can't really suggest anything.

for some reason i am still at home and navigation link is not working.Example after clicking on navigation,i am still on home page What i want is

This one's quite easy to diagnose, you're cancelling the navigation in your Javascript:
items.addEventListener("click", function (e) {

What you're saying here is "when someone clicks a link, cancel navigating to that link" so obviously your page won't navigate to whatever address you've provided.

I am new at this. Exactly what should I do?

It depends exactly what you're trying to do, as I say it depends how you're serving your pages. You're either using server-side rendering via PHP or a similar backend framework, or you're serving your pages using a client-side framework like Angular/React. If you're not using either of these then you're creating static pages which, depending on the requirements of your project, may or may not be suitable.
