How To: Add Pages on Blogger



Yesterday we wanted to get to know you and your needs as a blogger a little better so we asked what it is that you need help with. We got several emails and some comments and we plan to answer every one we can. Today we are answering Angie's question on how to add pages to her blog Keith & Angie Pope. We will be showing this for Blogger.

Step one:

You are going to want to create or download an image for the page[s] that you are wanting to add. I simply created one using PicMonkey by uploading a downloaded banner and adding 'SPONSOR' to it. This is the image that will be clickable for your new page on your blog. 

*Repeat for any other pages you want to add

Step two:

Upload your image to an image hosting site [I use Flickr]. Keep this window open because you're going to come back to it in a later step. 

*If you do not wish to use HTML for your pages, you can simply skip these two steps 

Step three:
Head on over to Blogger and click on 'Pages'. You'll then click on 'New Page' then 'Blank Page'. Add a title and any information you want for this new page. Once you added your content be sure to preview to check and make sure it looks how you want it. If everything checks out, publish like you would a blog post. Then be sure to click 'Save Arrangement' located in the top right corner of your Blogger dashboard. 


Once you're back on your 'Pages' screen, if you wish to use HTML for your pages when in public view of your blog, choose from the drop down menu next to 'Show pages as' and click 'Don't show' [shown in these brackets on the image below]. This option makes it where the default pages menu isn't shown on your public view of your blog and allows for the HTML [clickable images] to act in their place.

 

*If you are not using an image for your pages you are done!

Step four:

Head on over to your 'Layout section and click on 'Add gadget' under your Header section. Select 'HTML/JavaScript' and paste this code:

<a href="PAGEURL" target="_blank"><img src="IMAGEURL" alt="TITLE" width="0" height="0" /></a>


Fill in any of the information in RED. You can find the page URL by clicking on 'view' under the page you created. Your image URL will be from the image you uploaded earlier on your image hosting site. The title is the name of the page you created. For the width and height numbers, simply put in the appropriate dimensions that would be proportionate to your blog and under your header. [Your image hosting site suggests different sizes you could use; I would go with the smallest to second smallest proportionate [not square unless your image is square] image size and grab that URL. ]

Repeat code and fill in all appropriate information for each new page.

Once you have pasted the code[s] and filled in the information, save it, preview your blog to make sure it all looks right, then click on Save Arrangement.
