How to put put Posts into your Pages in Blogger

submit to reddit
This article shows how to set up your blog, using Blogger, so that it looks like your posts are on separate web-pages.


Can you put Posts onto Pages in Blogger?

Ever since Google introduced "pages" into Blogger, people have complained that their posts all go onto the "home page", and asked how to put posts onto different pages in their blog.


The standard, but unsatisfactory, answer is
"Sorry, that's not how Blogger works.   So called "static" pages in Blogger are meant to be used for reference information that doesn't change often, which you don't want to be part of your regular post-feed, but which you do want users to have easy access to."

Basically, this is part of the difference between post and pages.

Luckily it's easy to set up your blog so that it looks like your posts are on different pages [tweet this]    (even though you and I know that this isn't how Blogger works) by following three simple steps.


Follow these steps to put your posts into pages


1   Add Categories

Categorise your posts by adding Labels to them.

It's your choice whether to add Labels to all posts, or just the ones that you want to show up on specific "pages".


2 Make a "pages look alike" menu bar:

There are (at least) are three ways of doing this - described below.

When Blogger first implemented static pages that could link to websites, I suggested choosing which ever option suited your blog best.   However now, due to the increasing importance of mobile templates, I recommend Option c), because the pages-gadget is the only one mentioned which automatically shows upon mobile-templates.

a)   With a Labels Gadget:    

Use the usual add-a-gadget approach to put a Labels gadget into the spot where you would put the Pages gadget if you wanted to make a horizontal menu bar with it.

If your blog has some Labels that you don't want to have "pages" for, then set it to show only some of your Labels:

b)  With a Linked-list gadget:

Use the usual add-a-gadget approach to put a Link-list gadget where you would put the Pages gadget if you wanted to make a horizontal menu bar with it.
Add a link to the list for each Label that you want a "page" for.   The HTML to use for each Label value is

http://YOUR-BLOG-URL/search/label/THE-LABEL-NAME

You can also add other items (eg individual Posts, or even Bllogger's static "pages" if you really must have them - see why I don't like them!) - see the menu bar at the top of this site for an example of this. 

c)   With a Pages gadget:   

Use the usual add-a-gadget approach to put a Pages gadget into the menu bar area.   (You can do this even if you have not created any Pages of content).

While you are editing the Pages gadget, there is an  + Add link page option.  


Click on this, and add an entry in like the ones described above in he Linked-list gadget option, putting
  •  the text you want in your menu bar into the Page title field 
  • The label search command into the Web address field.




3   Optional:  Deal with the home-page


If you don't want your posts to appear on the "home page" was well as the topic pages, then there are two possibilities:

OR

  • Give your blog a "home page" using the custom-redirect option discussed in this post.

However I generally see this as unnecessary, because in most cases, very blog visitors ever see the home page.



Job Done

It really is that simple.  Your readers can now click on the "pages" in your blog from a "menu" at the top, and see a list of posts for the Page that they chose.

Even better, if some posts relate to more than one topic, they show up on both of the relevant pages.    And if you have used the Pages gadget, your blog is well set-up to work with a mobile-template - which is something that is getting more important every month.

Don't forget to test your blog, to make sure that the menu bar is working how you expect it to and that it looks OK, in all the browsers that your readers are actually using.

  4. Snowdrop, sometimes that works, sometimes it doesn't. It totally depends on how Google have set Blogger up. See the couple of paragraphs just above "Job Done" for some thoughts about what you can do when it doesn't work.

  9. This news was a bummer! I was hoping to use each page to make blog entries specific to my audience instead of having all entries mixed in together. Instead, I am using each page to make one big static entry and I just add on to the previous with a date. It is not the same and I may change it as time goes but I will give it a go!

    ReplyDelete
  10. I wish with each page you make at blogger you could have more than one topic on each page....it isn't a problem to have this at wordpress. I had some high hopes on how I was developing my blog, and my views have been climbing. Now...the pages with only 1 topic...what a BIG bummer!

  13. Really helpful. Instead of using search/lable URL, we can use post URL, as now each post have a different URL. I think u have done it too.

  14. "Putting the Labels gadget where you would put the Pages gadget if you wanted to make a horizontal menu bar with it.
    If your blog has some Labels that you don't want to have "pages" for, then set it to show only some of your Labels (this is an option in the Design > Page Elements > Add a gadget > Labels screen)"

    - i dont think this works. you cant put the labels gadget horizontally.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Well I have .. see the menu bar at the top of this blog. The trick is to put it into the area underneath the title where the Page gadget would go - in this space, linked lists are formatted to show horizontally.

  18. I want to do something a little different. I want to use labels to categorize things, but on the home page I only want to show a single category, ie : general.

    The other blogs, listed under different labels will only be referenced through links on a static page called : tutorials

    Is there a way I can force only a single label to be shown as the default on the home page?

    ReplyDelete
  19. Hmm, I'm sure it's possible with some clever manipulation of the "home" page (ref: blogs don't have home pages - http://blogger-hints-and-tips.blogspot.com/2010/01/setting-what-goes-on-home-page.html )

    'Fraid I'm not 100% sure how to do it though. Maybe you should ask for help on the Blogger Help Forum.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Great post! You're a lifesaver. Thanks!

  21. Glad to hear it helped. Hope your blog goes well.

    ReplyDelete
  22. It looks great except that when i click on lets say "sports" it takes me to the page and the "sports" label font gets smaller and its a different color so it doesnt look right

    ReplyDelete
  23. In addition, it posts everything under that label. So if I have like 100 posts for that label, the page will be somewhat endless. :'(

    ReplyDelete
  24. I believe that auto-pagination means that it won't show all 100 posts: it will show the most recent ones, the rest will be behind the "show older posts" link on the Label-screen.

    Fraid I don't know any way to handle that, except perhaps always put jump-breaks very early in your posts, so only a small bit of the post is shown.

  25. Dear Mary,
    I want to do somewhat this idea: I want to have the static pages for the things I dont change, But I want something like a horizontal index bar where I can post mulitple posts for the topics that I will have... I know I need to ditch my static page gadget, and add in a JAVA/HTML Something maybe resembling a Horizontal Index bar. Now, I am wondering when that happens, When I post something, do I just type ini at the bottom where it says Label: do I type in the Topic or Label that I want it to appear in? And I want it to look how it would look in a Filiing Cabinet... Am I asking for too much? Is this possible? And Oce I get what I want... How do I make the posts go where I want htem... ı know they are "Archived" But I need them to be easier accessible by the Topoics that I will have in my blog... I don't mind a blog or two on my home page... I just want some of my readers to be able to click on a topic and volia... It is there... Am I asking correctly. Please forgive my illiteracy... I am very new to this

    ReplyDelete
  26. Yes: When you post something, type the category at the bottom where it says Label.

    You shouldn't need any HTML, just a Labels gadget - put it in the same place that a horizontal Pages gadget would go.

  33. Dear Mary

    I just started using blogger and followed your advice, because I wanted my blog posts under different pages. The label/link workaround seems to work, but I have one problem: when I organise with labels, every page (label) starts with a message box saying "Showing blog posts with label xx. Show all blog posts". It doesn't look good at all. Is there any way to remove this message? I cant find it in the links gadget or label gadget settings.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Also found out that you can just add labels as pages under "Pages>New page>web adress" and then type in http://blogname/search/label/labelname. And then select "Pages>show pages as tabs".

    ReplyDelete
  35. Where did you find the "Labels" gadget? I'm using the new Layout but when I search Gadgets for "Labels" the only 3 I find are Label Sphere, Promo One and Pictures of Rihanna (random??). So I'd love to do this but not sure where this gadget is. I've got like NO HTML skills as I'm new to this so if you have a simple explanation that would be helpful!!!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Hi Jen

    I think the search-tool in the gadgets list has problems: it seems to show some odd 3rd party gadgets, and not show the good ones from Blogger.

    Solution: just scroll down the list, don't search. I think labels is 3-4 clicks down.

  48. This was great and with a little trial and error I figured it out. The labels gadget was the easiest but I didn't like the little numbers next to each label corresponding to the number of posts, so I went with a combination of Pages Gadget with Linked List using the
    http://YOUR-BLOGS-URL/search/label/THE-LABEL-NAME template.

    The biggest thing for me was decoding this template and figuring out how exactly to write my labels in place of the THE-LABEL-NAME. I couldn't get my label links to work because I had labels like Housing numbers and Macro Markets. I tried lower case upper case combinations, running them together, etc. I finally figured out IMPORTANT: that you have to write your labels exactly as written with spaces and proper capitalization or else it won't link

    1. Thanks Andrew, that's a very good point. I'll include it the next time I update this article.

      fyi, if you do use the labels gadget again, there should be an option on its setup screen to not show the number of posts.

  53. OpenMind's simple tip works fine. Just add labels as pages under "Pages>New page>web adress" and then type in http://blogname/search/label/labelname. And then select "Pages>show pages as tabs".

    Unfortunately, the whole blog archive is shown on every page. How to have each page display an archive with just the posts that have the tag of that page?

    1. Sorry Chris, that would require a gadget that's more sophisticated than the ones Blogger offers at the moment. Someone who's "smart enough" could make one - but I'm not that smart!

      I'd suggest asking on the Google Product Forum, to see if anyone there has a solution for you.

      Delete
    3. Ahh, I think I mis-understood you. If it'a set of topics with post counts, the trick is to make a labels gadget, and put it just under the blog-post area.

      Then make a Page (not a post) with a title like "topic index" - and no content it in. Take note of the URL of the page.

      Then apply this trick to only show the gadget on the Page you just made:

  62. Fantastic!

My blog is now much neater and professional looking now thanks to your guide!

    1. How can you get rid of that number of posts in brackets next to the label name?
    2. How can you arrange the order of the labels?
    3. Can you create labels before you have posts for it?

    I'm new on Blogger so I really need your help. I've noticed that Blogger is in fact very confusing and it lacks instructions. This blog, however, has helped me to start with my blog.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You can get rid of the numbers by editing the Labels gadget (from Layout), and un-ticking the "Show number of posts per label" option.

      You cannot currently control the order of the labels.

      And you cannot create labels before you create posts - BUT you could create and apply them to posts that are not yet published, which would have the same effect.

      Hope that helps.

When I added "labels" as pages at the top of my blog, the lables were all bunched together since I had to sort them as "cloud" so they would go horizonatally. The second way I tried it, putting linked list at top of blog with the html script you gave was awesome, but it would not sort them horizontally so I had the vertical list at the top of my blog. Know how I can fix this? I use a template from TCBOTB so I'm wondering if that's screwing it up. ????

  87. Hi! I'm new to blogger, and I'm a little confused. I want to make a static page for my homepage, and then have the posts show on another 'tab' so to speak along the top. Here's an example from another blog of how I'd like it to look:
    http://kellywalkerwrites.blogspot.com/
    Do you see what I mean? I want pages like the homepage, about me page, etc to show up along with another tab titled 'blog' or something similar with my posts on it.
    Thanks for any help you can give!

    ReplyDelete
  88. You should have specified before writing your article that this "only" refers to users who are setting up their blogg from scratch.

    The simple truth is that you seem to have been missing the whole point and have misled people. You `cannot' add gadgets to a page, hence `static'. Labels are not even presented as an option for individual pages. you are confusing pages with posts, and so confusing everyone else.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi Glenn, thanks for your comment.

      I don't believe that this only applies to people setting up a blog from scratch: I've certainly applied it to a blog some time after it was initially set up.

      You're right, it does help if people appreciate Blogger's somewhat unusual definition of "page" before they start talking about this question. But gadgets are shown on Pages as well as Posts - and the technique for adding them inside a Page is just the same as inside a Post. But what's not possible is adding a gadet inside a "Page" which is actually a pointer to a list of posts, because these different "Pages" aren't really edited pages at all.

  90. Hi! I'm really struggling with this. It seems if I try and do it through the Labels widget (to make a page for certain posts) I can't still have my About Me section and Contact section in the pages header too. It seems I can either have my pages headers or my Labels widget. Am I doing something wrong?

    Also is it possible to change the text of the labels widget to match the rest of my blog? I've seen other bloggers do this but so confused!

    Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. That's right: If you're doing to use the Pages gadget (needed to show specific pages like About Me), then you cannot have the labels gadget. Instead, you need to put in links to posts with specific labels with the

      statement.

      Sadly, it's a long way from a perfect solution.

  91. Great Post buddy. But the problem is when we click on the label then the font and formatting of that label changes and becomes ugly. For example if there is 'interesting' named label and when we click it, it looses formatting and font becomes smaller. Any solution for that

  92. I'm with you right up to:

    3 If you don't want all posts to appear on the "home page" was well as the topic pages, set your home page to show zero posts, by setting "Number of posts on main page:" = 0 on:

    Post-Sept-2011-Blogger (aka the new interface) Layout > Blog Posts (edit),
    Pre-Sept-2011-Blogger (aka the new interface) Design > Page Elements > Blog Posts (edit)

    Trying to set "Number of posts on main page:" = 0 yields "Number too small: must be greater than: 1"

    What now?

    1. ahh, now that only the new interface is available, I need to update this article. Right now, there is no way to set posts/page to zero, so you need to use another trick like totally re-directing your home-page, as per: http://blogger-hints-and-tips.blogspot.com/2010/01/setting-what-goes-on-home-page.html

  93. Im new to this blog world and im sure your instructions are in the simplest form, but I am so lost. Can you give me the simplest way to turn "pages" into posts?

  94. Thanks for the post...it was really helpful. My blog seems to be having trouble with it though..I have tried both the "labels" and the "linked list" techniques and unfortunately with both methods only half of my links work. After a certain link they just don't highlight and you can't click them. Why is this and how do I stop it from happening (I wanted to put 8-10 pages on my blog). Please help!

  103. I am writing a blog for my travels, and want to create a "page" to put the posts under for each separate travel adventure. I laughed when the response was "That isn't how blogger works." Well, um, clearly, your clients want that! Had I known it was going to be so challenging to do, I would have just signed up with wordpress initially. Thanks so much for posting this! I will give it a try once this trip wraps up and I want to archive the posts!

  104. Hi Mary! I followed the Linked-list gadget method, but after adding 2 links (which was successful), I can no longer add more list or "pages". It keeps saying "please correct the errors on this form". I wonder where it went wrong, as the 2 first "pages" were successful. Please help. Thanks. :)

  108. HI thanks for the blog post, it is just what I was looking for. I am still really confused though. I have set up labels horizontally on my page, but the posts are not there, they are all still on the home page while the other pages are still blank. I have been trying to figure it out but I can't! I would love some help with this, thanks.

  109. I was wondering if you knew any way to get that box that appears below the tabs saying
    "Showing posts labeled ... Show all posts"
    I'm using the pages version, as I found that it is easier for me to use, and appears the best.

    ReplyDelete
  110. When I do this, the selected label's format looks like the text in my post i.e. small and black, which doesn't fit with my layout. Any way to fix this?

  111. Hey can anybody tell me how do i Move a post from one page to another page in blogger
    I am asking that if we want to separate posts in each page of blogger with read more button how can we do this ?

    ReplyDelete
  112. Thanks for this but it doesn't work anymore, blogger no longer has option to choose Blank or Web Address and even if you tried to create it from Add gadget you won't see it after creation. :(

  113. Thanks for the heads-up Emnot, the procedure changed when Blogger made recent changes to the Pages functions. I've now updated the post above with the current instructions.

    ReplyDelete
  119. YO! This is perfect – however…

    When I click on the tab that I've assigned the labels to it says "Showing posts with label xxxxx. Show all posts" – is there any way at all to get rid of this? Just looks rubbish :(

    Please aid me!!!!

  120. This doesn't work anymore since Blogger changed the widget again. There is no add link anymore.

    ReplyDelete
  121. I have the add link but I end up creating two pages, one linked and one not linked. First I created the new page and grabbed the url. Then when I go into my Pages widget at the top of my blog to add the link it will ask me for the page title and the link and it creates another new page! Help!
