Page Navigation Hack for Blogger

Most said page navigation menu in the bottom of the page can appear only in WordPress blogs. But Now here is a blogger hack which will help you to show Page Navigation Menu in bottom of the page ( see screenshot ) . you can Add this Page Navigation hack to your blogger template either by inserting script to your template by editing or you can add it as a widget . In this post I will write only how to add this Page navigation menu by editing template code.

Page Navigation Hack

I have used a background image for this Page Navigation hack. If you want to show this without the background image just remove the background image url .

Let us start :

Step 1 : Log in to your blogger account and navigate to Layout section. Now go to the edit HTML subtab.

Step 2 : search this line ]]></b:skin> and add this CSS code above that line.


CSS CODE WITH IMAGE :

.showpageArea {padding: 0 2px;margin-bottom:10px;margin-top:10px;
}

.showpageArea a {border: 1px solid #505050;
color: #000000;font-weight:normal;
padding: 3px 6px !important;
padding: 1px 4px ;margin:0px 4px;
text-decoration: none;
}
.showpageArea a:hover {
font-size:11px;
border: 1px solid #333;
color: #000000;
background-color: #FFFFFF;
}

.showpageNum a {border: 1px solid #505050;
color: #000000;font-weight:normal;
padding: 3px 6px !important;
padding: 1px 4px ;margin:0px 4px;
text-decoration: none;

}
.showpageNum a:hover {
font-size:11px;
border: 1px solid #333;
color: #000000;
background-color: #FFFFFF;

}
.showpagePoint {font-size:11px;
padding: 2px 4px 2px 4px;
margin: 2px;
font-weight: bold;
border: 1px solid #333;
color: #fff;
background-color: #000000;

}

.showpage a:hover {font-size:11px;
border: 1px solid #333;
color: #000000;
background-color: #FFFFFF;

}
.showpageNum a:link,.showpage a:link {
font-size:11px;
padding: 2px 4px 2px 4px;
margin: 2px;
text-decoration: none;
border: 1px solid #0066cc;
color: #0066cc;
background-color: #FFFFFF;}

.showpageNum a:hover {font-size:11px;
border: 1px solid #333;
color: #000000;
background-color: #FFFFFF;
}

It must look like this :

 When you Add CSS code to your template , it must look like this

Step 3 : Now search for this code or related in your template ( no need to expand widgets )

<b:section class=’main’ id=’main’ showaddelement=’yes’>
<b:widget id=’Blog1′ locked=’true’ title=’Blog Posts’ type=’Blog’/>
</b:section>

Now Add This script just below the </b:section> .

&lt;script type=&quot;text/javascript&quot;&gt;

In the code above you can edit the lines in red to your wish .

1 : var pageCount = 5;

The digit in red represents number of posts to be shown in single page. Change the digit to show as many pages you want.

for example :

In my blog I have put that value as 2 . In each page you can see only 2 posts .

2 : var displayPageNum = 3;

here the digit in red represents number of pages to be listed.

For example :

In my blog I have chosen 3 , then 3 pages will be shown.

That’s it now we have added Page Navigation menu hack to our blog successfully .

That CSS code will suit almost all templates. Please don’t remove the credit link.

I hope all of you will like this Page Navigation blogger hack . If you have any doubts please ask in comment section . Comments are most welcome , please give me your feedback about this blogger Hack.
