Page Navigation Menu Widget for Blogger

Yesterday I wrote How to add Page Navigation Menu hack by editing your blogger template. Now today I would like to use a different method to add this Page Navigation Menu to our Blogger Blog. Most Bloggers will prefer this method to add Page navigation Menu , because this method is very easy than editing Blogger Template.

Let us see how to add this Page Navigation Menu Widget :

Page Navigation Menu Widget

step 1 : Login to your Blogger account and Navigate to Layout Section . Now click Add Page Element link there.

Step 2 : In that Page Element window , choose HTML / JAVASCRIPT .

Step 3 : Now add this Javascript in that window.

<style>
.showpageArea {padding: 0 2px;margin-top:10px;margin-bottom:10px;
}
.showpageArea a {border: 1px solid #505050;
color: #000000;font-weight:normal;
padding: 3px 6px !important;
padding: 1px 4px ;margin:0px 4px;

}
.showpageArea a:hover {
font-size:11px;
border: 1px solid #333;

After Adding this Javascript you need to drag and drop the widget below the Blog Posts main widget. See this screen shot

Page Navigation Menu Widget

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.

Now save your template .
That’s it now we have added Page Navigation menu widget to our blog successfully .

I hope you guys will feel this method is easier than the last one.

Hi Mohamed , can you please tell me why some posts do not show up when one navigates to the next page ? – also : I had to install this into my page source as well as a widget – which is really strange – I triied it out so many times by itself ( as the script alone in the source page – and as a widget and it wouldnt show up ) then I applied both scripts and it did.

  15. KANG: http://www.blogspottutorial.com/2008/09/making-label-in-drop-down-menu.html

    I’m hoping you can help. I’m trying to create the dropdown label hack in blogger, and I can’t get it to work. I have new blogger. I’ve replaced the script, but it still shows all results on one page. I’m looking for the label results like on Kang’s post, NOT ‘ALL POSTS’ on ONE PAGE (that method is too slow). i’ve already replaced my original code with kang’s code from his instructions on the url code above, so please let me know what to change from that modification, if you can.
