Tina's Tutorials #3: How to make Pages


Pages are seperate posts on your blog that can be linked to via a header.
It is a common way on blogger to link to review policies, contact information, profiles, etc. The advantages of having pages is that links to important information is easily accessible to others visiting your blog.




How to make pages: a step by step guide


Step 1:
In your blogger dashboard, click on design.




Step 2:
You should now be in the "Design" tab.  Go to the "Page Elements" subtab.



Step 3:
Under your header, click on "Add a Gadget".


Step 4:
This box should pop up. Click on the + button next to pages.


 Pages should now be added to your blog design. Save your Page Elements.


Step 5:
To edit your page elements, go to the Posting tab, and click on the "Edit Pages" subtab that should now have appeared.


Step 6:
To make a new page, click on the blue rectangular button that says "New Page". Once it has been created, existing pages will appear below, and you may edit, delete or view them.



To edit the header:


Step 1:
Click on the Design tab.


Step 2:
It should bring you to this page:

Click on "Template Designer".


Step 3:
Once you are in the "Blogger Template Designer", click on the Advanced tab.



Step 4:
In the Advanced tab, click on "Tabs Text".

What you need to edit is the text color (how the text of the page will appear in your header when it is not selected), and the selected color (how the text will appear when the page is selected).

Experiment around until you get it right.



Step 5:
Remaining in the Advanced tab, click on "Tabs Background".
What you need to edit is the background color (how the color of your header will appear when the page is not selected), and the selected color (how the color of your header will appear when the page is selected).
Experiment around until you get it right.



Step 6:
Remember to Save your progess by clicking on "Apply to Blog". Then click on "View Blog" to view the changes you've made.
