Creating static pages in Blogger is a new feature for everyone, opening many possibilities for new tricks and much fun.
We have the possibility to create 20 static pages for each blog.
Well, it is not exactly what we expected; a Blogger static page looks like any other post page, on the first glance.
There are some notable differences though between a post page and a static page.
With some extra styling an customization, we can use these pages as stand alone About page, Contact page, gallery page, table of content page, you name it.
These tutorials are the result of testing the new static pages feature on my test blog. Being a beginner blogger myself, with limited experience, I decided to share my results with those interested.
Let's create our first static page and we'll talk about customization and tricks later.
Creating the first static page.Step 1.
- Go to Dashboard |Edit posts and click on the Edit pages tab.
- Click on Create a page, if this is your first page.
Update on 20.12.2011:
This feature is not available any more in this old interface but you can access it from the new editor.
Read the updated version by clicking this link.
This new window at the right pops up with three possible options to publish your new page.
Don't worry about choosing the right option, it can be changed by republishing the page.
Find out the difference between the three options in my next tutorial.
