How to Create Static Pages in Blogger

What are Blogger static pages? 

Blogger Static Pages allows you to create specific pages like About Me, Contact page, Privacy Policy etc. on stand-alone pages that are linked from your blog. The static pages basically are the same as post pages, but there are several things that make them different. One of the differences is that static pages don't appear in the home page, don't have a label, and are not indexed as archive pages.


How to Create Static Pages in Blogger.

Step 1. Log in to your Blogger Dashboard

Step 2. Click on Pages
static pages blogger, blogger tutorials, widgets


Step 3. Click on New Page - Blank Page

Step 4. Type the title and write the page's content.


Step 5. Before publishing it, click on Preview to see how it will appear on your blog.

Step 6. When you have finished the editing, click on Publish button.

Step 7. Now you have 3 options:
  1. Keep it as nav menu below header - Top tabs
  2. Display the page in your blog's sidebar - Side Links
  3. Add the page's link manually to your template - Don't Show

Step 8. After you have chosen where the page will appear, click on the Save arrangement button



And now you're done!
Now you have owned the static page. If you want another static page, just repeat the steps above.

Note: if you have opted for Don't show option: go to Pages again and right click on the page's title and select Copy link location (in firefox). You can add the link manually to your sidebar via Link widget or add the link in your template, via Edit HTML.

    1. Could you post a newer version with pics using the new blogger layout. I'll give you an example. The only thing that I can see that I can do as far as "editing pages" is change the name of the page. I don't have the options you have above. Thank you so much.

    1. Hi Yassine,

      Here are some tricks you can apply:
      1) give an unique label to each of your related posts, then put the URL of the label in the tabs of your blog so that each time your readers will click on the "pages" of your blog, they will be transfered to the list of posts for the page which they have chosen.
      2) set up the pages shown on homepage to 0 (from Blogger's Dashboard click on Settings -> Formating -> Show at most - 0 posts)
      3) set up a 'landing' page - add a text or an HTML/JavaScript gadget enter the text you want to appear on your homepage, then drag it just above the Blog Posts area.

      Hope this will help you!

  5. Can I create my static pages and save them until I have all of them lined up how I like, or do I have to publish each one as I do them?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yes, if you want to show them on your tabs or whatever, go at the Pages widget and deselect the pages you want to be hidden or the "Automatically add new pages when they are published" option. You can also drag them to change their position. You can check them back anytime to show on your blog.

  6. I want to make my page static, which I have already set up as a forum. I want it to be the first and only thing that people see when they come to my site. I don't want them to have to click a button to get to it. Is there a way to make my page truly static without requiring any sort of click-through? This is September 2012 btw.

    1. From your Blogger Dashboard, go to Settings > Search Preferences and look for Custom Redirects option, then in the From: box enter a forward slash - "/" and in the To: box enter the page name which is after the blogspot.com - for example yours would looks something like "/p/Forum.html" (you should add the slash before of it here too). Now thick the "Permanent" checkbox and click on the 'Save' link, then press the 'Save changes' button. Hope it works!

    Also, I wasn't sure I understood your comment above. I want to create static pages but work on them, edit them and when completely satisfied with all the pages then post them. Am I able to do that? Or must they be posted as I create them?

    Thank you.

So for my homemade section, I want to put all my creative and cooking posts in there also. It must be possible becuase I have seen it on others but I just can't work it out.....thanks so much :)

    2. You can't publish a post in a static page but you can add a unique label to the similar posts and copy the label URL (to find it, right click on your label and select "Copy link location") and add the label's link to your top tabs: from your blog dashboard, click on Pages > New Page and choose "Web address" option, where you add the tab's title and paste the label's link.

    Hi there. I am wondering, if you create a page and you want to have labels under the page instead of gadget like for example on this webpage http://crossfitmobile.blogspot.com/p/fitness-is.html. Under fitness page there are number of others pages. Just wondering how one would go about doing this in blogger. Spent loads of time trying to figure it out but with no luck.

  32. Hello! I'll look through your blog to see if I can find what I'm looking for, but I came across this post when searching, "how to have 2 post sections on blogger". I've tried the google forum but no one seemed to know what I meant. I can only seem to post "entries" on the main post section, but cannot add a second section of the same format (like how you can add multiple "pages" but they are all static).

    Google forum said to create a "page" and choose "redirect to web address" and link it to a group of entries under the same label. My problem with that is that anything labelled will ALSO show up on the original "post" section, and I want it separate.

    1. It is possible only if you know the widgets code which you can paste in the HTML section of your page when creating it. Or you can drag your widgets below the Blog Posts area and add conditional tags to them to show only in a specific page. Here is a tutorial about how you can do it: hide/show widgets on specific pages.

  71. Good Morning,
    Thank you very much for your post. I'm wondering, is there a way to make a single static page? Or maybe I'm misunderstanding something. On my old blog, I had the option to move my page to a "hidden" section in "pages". Now that I have created a new blog, I see that the option is no longer there. When I followed your directions, it hid all of my pages, instead of just one. Is there a way to hide just one page in "pages" as opposed to all of them? I still want my other pages to show up below my header, I would prefer to link my about me in my side bar. I can't seem to find help for this :(
    Thank you for your time.

      Add the pdf address for your new page, then try to find this line in your template (Template > Edit HTML):
      <b:loop values='data:links' var='link'>

      And below it, you should see some lines starting with "<li><a expr:href="... look for the last one just before the "</ul>" tag and add the code in bold like this:

      <li><a expr:href='data:link.href' target="_blank"><data:link.title/></a></li>

      And Save your Template. Please make a backup of your current template before anything.
      I hope this will work for you. Thanks for visiting!

  100. I have pages (tabs) appearing on my blogger blog, and want to edit them, but they are not appearing in the dashboard's options. My PAGES only shows 4 items available for editing or deleting, but there are actually 6 items appearing on my blog. How can you make them reappear in my dashboard/"My Blogs" page?

  101. Apparently the format changed, I was able to add, edit, and delete static pages in two manners.
    1) go to layout, and click on EDIT where it shows the PAGE TABS appear on your blog.

    OR

    2) Look at your actual blog (not from the dashboard). Where the little wrench appears on the right of your PAGES/TABS, click on that.

    Either way, a BLOGGER CONFIGURE PAGE LIST window pops up.

    1) REARRANGE the Pages by clicking on the left icon and dragging.

    2) DELETE BY Clicking the "x" on the right side

    3) TO ADD A NEW STATIC PAGE - At the bottom of the window click on ADD LINK PAGE.

    4) TO EDIT EXISTING STATIC PAGE TITLE: No edit option. You have to delete entirely and re-add in order to "edit" wording for your tab.
