Adding Pages To Blogspot

Updated on May 27, 2014

What Are Blogspot Pages?

A page on Blogspot is a place to add static information that you would like separate from your blog posts.

The main uses are for important articles that you want people to find easily, such as Terms and Conditions and About Us. Other useful pages include a contact form, an embedded shop or your competition details.

Pages are added to your blog's menu but don't have to link to a page within your blog. You can choose to link to a site outside your blog, such as your shop or social network profiles as well.

Another alternative would be to link to a specific category or tag within your blog. Go to your blog and do a search for the term you want to link to. Then use the link of the search results as the URL in your web address page link.

Pages And The Blogspot Navigation Menu

As mentioned above, pages you create can be a part of your blog menu. The Page Title will be the text on the menu button, so make sure it isn't too long.

As a default setting your pages will automatically be part of the menu when you publish them. If you do not want this to happen:

  1. Go to 'Layout' and under 'Pages' click 'edit'
  2. Uncheck 'Automatically add new pages when they are published'
  3. Click 'Save'

Blogger Page Options

You can write a Blog Page just you would a post, using text, photos, links and HTML to suit.

And just like in posts there are a couple of features for pages which you can alter on each page separately.

Reader Comments. Sometimes it may not be appropriate to have comments on a page. For example, there seems little point to having comments under a contact form! You can choose:

  • Allow
  • Don't allow, show existing
  • Don't allow, hide existing

Compose Mode. This is for if you want to write an article and show specific code to your readers, that they can then copy and paste into their own site. This is a useful alternative for Grab Buttons. If you would like to show the code and not have it automatically converted, choose the first option:

  • Show HTML literally
  • Interpret typed HTML

Line Breaks. This is for when you want to alter how your paragraphs are seen. I confess I don't see a difference using either, but if you know more about coding and these please do tell us about this option, in the comments below. The choices are:

  • Use <br> tag
  • Press "Enter" for line breaks

These features can be found under 'Options' on the right hand side of the screen under 'Page Settings' when editing a page.

Removing Blogger Pages From The Menu

Sometimes you want a static page, but you don't want it to appear on your menu.

It's a good idea to 'hide' your page when you want to:

  • Create a page for a specific group of people, such as your Facebook fans.
  • Create separate product pages, to sell products linked to from other parts of your blog.

To remove a page from your menu:

  1. Go to 'Layout' and click 'edit' under 'Pages'
  2. Untick the check marks for the page(s) you want to hide
  3. Click 'Save'

So there you have it! If you liked this, have any questions or just fancy saying hello comment below!
