Using Pages in Blogger

Some of you may already be familiar with Blogger's "Page" feature. But in case you aren't, here's a little intro. Blogger has a feature that allows you to post up to 10 static pages. That is a page that stands on its own within your blog structure, found through a link. For example, and About Me section can be contained on a static page. The same goes for contact information, lists of recipes, blogs of note, directories of links (like our Designer Gallery). Here are a few examples of how we use pages:
About Us
Designer Gallery
Advertise With Us

We have installed a custom navigation bar. But Blogger has a great feature that let you list all of your pages in an automatic navigation bar or sidebar list! It's a wonderful and quick way to add some more dimension to your blog easily, without having blogging super powers. :)

Here's how to find the Pages:

• Under the "Posting" tab (where you usually type a regular blog post). There is a link to the right called "Edit Pages." 


• Once you click that, you'll be walked through the steps to add a page. Here's how it looks behind the scenes for us:

• Blogger will then give you various options for displaying your pages:

It's that easy! Do you use pages? If you try this feature and like it, let us know in a comment with a link to your blog so we can see how it worked out!

  4. I do use pages to categorize, but I do my blog posts on the main page, if that makes sense.

  8. I do use the pages, but when I want to write for a certain page somehow I end up messing it up, it doesn`t show on that page if that makes sense.


    Any help would be greatly appreciated =)

  9. I already use and love pages. It's nice that you're putting that info out there in case people didn't really know about them. They're so useful.

  11. I do know about the outage. Not fun. Thought I'd switch over to WP after attending BloggyBootCamp last year. I went as far as my domain name & setting up acct. That was it. I do love Blogger. I do need to backup & I'm wanting a blog makeover! (just waiting for new photos!)

    I do love the Tab feature! I would love customized fancy pretty ones, but for now... these will do me just fine!

  12. I do have a couple of pages on my Blog, but I have a question for you. If I make a new post, it comes up on my home page and is emailed to my followers, but if I make a new post on one of my pages will my followers also get an email?
    I'd like to categorize my postings but I want everyone to be notified of a new post. Should I put it on both the home page and in an additional page?

  13. Hi all, I'm using the new blogger interface, and I wanted to creae some pages. I have no idea what I'm doing wrong, but I can't find it's link (after I created it), so that I can link to it from my main page. I want to manually link it. Can someone please direct me to a good "how to" on this. I can only find tutorials on the old blogger, or non specific on the new interface.

    Thanks,
    Judy

    1. Hi Judy! You didn't leave any contact info, so I hope you get this. I totally understand what you are saying about finding links. It is also difficult to find links if you like to back-date posts, which I do. In the old interface you could click View Post and you'd get the URL Link immediately. With the new Blogger you have to do a little more work - sadly.
      You should be able to find your link in the Pages section of your blog...if you are looking at the inside layout portion of your blog click on Pages...then locate the page you need the link to, click on View. This will bring the actual Page up and you can copy the URL. Hope this helps.

    2. You can also find your Permalink now on the right hand side of the posting space in your Layout. If you click on Permalink it will give you the post's URL address. You also now have the option to create a custom permalink!
