How to create a new page in Blogger

add_page As we all know, Blogger doesn’t provide an option for users to create new pages for their blogs in their dashboard. This can be inconvenient for publishers trying to monetize their blogs for higher revenue or just optimizing their blogs for a better user experience. Fortunately, users can create new pages, even with Google’s Blogger service, but the reason Blogger doesn’t provide an option for this feature is because since it’s a free service with millions of other Blogger blogs out there, Blogger tries to reduce space usage in this type of manner. There are two ways you can create new pages in Blogger, and if you’ve made a post, you’ve just discovered the first method.

Here’s the first method for creating a new page in Blogger

1. You can actually create new pages with postings. When you make a post, your individual post pages are considered as a new page. For example, let’s say you’ve added a navigation menu to your blog and you want to link a page to one of the menu’s link, take “Tools”, for example.

2. Make a post, but in this post, make it about your “Tools” section. We know that postings can handle HTML, so you can stylize your “Tools” page to how you want it. Next, publish your post, and there’s your new page. You can now link that posting link to your navigation menu’s link. Here is a screenshot of how I linked the Blogspot Vision’s Tools link to it’s navigation menu bar.

Here’s the second method for creating a new page in Blogger

1. If you choose not to create a new page by post, you can create a new page by changing your archive link to whatever you want it to be. Let’s take the Blogspot Vision’s “Tips” link for example. The tips link was created and named tips, for example, this is the link I created for tips: http://www.blogspotvision.com/search/label/tip

2. After you created this link, you can go ahead and link it to your navigation menu link, in this case, I linked it to the tips menu link. When you actually click on your newly created link, you will have a new page with no content in the post section, but you can easily add content by using the “Add a Gadget” > HTML/JavaScript option.

3. Once you’ve added your content using the HTML/JavaScript gadget, you’ll need to move it to the Blog Post section of your layout and then add the IF conditional tags to your content in the Edit HTML section under the Layout tab of your dashboard. Here’s a screen shot of mine:

4. Preview your template before you save, and if all works fine, save your template.

CSS DIV boxes with drop shadows

This example shows how to add a drop shadow style to any container element using CSS. It does this by wrapping the desired content in a DIV with its background color set to a color of the desired color for the shadow. Another DIV is set for your content and is shifted slightly upwards and to the left to expose the shadow. The "master" DIV wraps it all up but is shifted to the right and downwards, returning the entire markup to it's original page position.

IE6 is not compatible with this example, but you can apply conditional HTML to hide the effect in that browser. In contrast, IE7 is compatible with this example for finally updating to proper CSS.

Note: If you will be using an image for your content, you should give ".shadowcontainer" an explicit height, reflecting that of the image's for fixed and set location when viewed.



CSS Code
<![if !IE 6]>
.shiftcontainer{
position: relative;
left: 5px; /*Number should match -left shadow depth below*/
top: 5px;…

How To Show The Post Date On Every Post

This tutorial is definitely handy if you plan to use a calendar icon as your post date, since the timestamp can be modified. As always, make sure you download your current existing template just in case it doesn’t turn out as expected.

Steps to follow:
1.Login to your Blogger dashboard.
2. Go to Layout > Edit HTML (click on “expand widgets” box)

<b:loop values='data:posts' var='post'>
<b:if cond='data:post.dateHeader'>
<h2 class='date-header'>
