Tutorial: How to Add Pages To the Top of Your Blog Page

Hello goils and gois. :D

Today I would like to share with you how to add pages to the top of your blog page. This is a great feature to use. You can add a Contact Me Page, a special Photo Page, an About Me page, your disclosure/disclaimer page.

Thanks to a little help from our own lovely and sweet Mz. Katie J and a little digging around I finally learned how and I am now confident enough in the process to share it with you.

Trust me, my little chickadees, this is easy-peasy! If I can do it, you can, too. Are you ready? Great! Buckle up and take it step by step.

Step one: You need to make your Home page. To do this, be signed in to your blog. Click the Design tab. You will arrive at your Add and Arrange Page Elements page. Find Add a Gadget under your header and click it. A dialog box will pop up with stuff you can add. At the top of the list will be an option for Pages. Select that option. Now, here is where my memory fails me a little, I don't remember the exact thing I clicked, but I think it was the Home box, then I clicked add and save and I had my Home at the top of my blog page. (Just play with it, it is easy, really. I just have a brain of mush and can't remember the exact thing to do. *blush*)

Okay, now that you have your Home page, it is time to get those little fingers loosened up and start making other pages. Remember, it is easy-peasy. Be not afraid, my young apprentice.

When you wish to add new pages, you may have ten, in total. (I don't know if that includes Home or not.) just click New Post. Under the tabs for Comments, Settings and so on, you will see three tabs that read: New Post, Edit Posts, Edit Pages. Click on Edit Pages. A page will come up with a blue box/button that reads: New Page. (As you add pages, you will see them listed here.) Click the blue box/button. Now you will have a page to write just like your normal blog pages.

Title your new page, write whatever you wish to write, add photos, graphics, whatever you want on that page. When you finish, click Publish Post and Voila! Like magic, you will have your new page at the top of your blog page! :D

When the time comes to edit those pages, if you want to make any changes to information, add or remove or move photos or whatever, just scroll to the end of the page, just like a normal post and click the pencil and you may edit to your little heart's content. If you decide to delete one of your pages, just go to the page with the blue box/button and click Delete under that page title and Poof! "Twill be gone.

Now, just repeat these steps to add/edit more pages and they will appear at the top of your page.

I don't know how to put the page navigation in little tabs or boxes or anything. I know that there is a way to do it but I don't know how, yet. There is also a way to move them around to change the order, I think that is done in Edit when you get to the Add and Arrange page. I haven't needed to try it, I just added my pages in the order I wished them to appear. Again, just play with it, you will figure it out long before I ever do. lolol

So, there you have it. How to add pages to the top of your blog page. I hope that these instructions were clear and easy to follow. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. I will do my best to help, but please remember, I am not a 'puter goddess. I am just kinda feeling my way along in the dark, here. :D

Otherwise, my day is going well. Food is really good. I am on target for calories and have a few to spare for a little sweetie, later. The air around here is better and I hope to be out on the road tomorrow to get my walk. I miss my walks! We got a little shopping done, tho Husband didn't want to go to the grocery store. Why, I will never know and I am over asking and trying to understand his bullshit, effed up head. Whatthefuckever.

I think I will go boil some water and straighten the cable on my circ. I hate Susan Bates circular knitting needles. They are crap. With a capital K, dudes. If I had a lot of moolah to blow on needles it would be Addi Turbos for me. I love, love, love fast, slick needles and Addis are supposed to be the best. I have another Swiffer pad on my needles but I need to transfer it to my circs, since Husband used one of my size 7 straights to dig hair out of the drain and ruined it. Scratched it all up. I am just pissed. Those were good needles. Super slick and fast. Now, they are junk. *sigh*
