This post explains how to add numbered page navigation widget to blogger (blogspot) blogs:

What is Numbered Page Navigation ?


In blogger, by default, you see Older posts, Newer Posts links near the bottom of the page which is useful to your blog visitors to navigate to other posts of your blog. But, the problem is.. people hardly notice those newer and older posts links.. which means.. less pageviews to your blog.

So, to increase your blog pageviews you can use this cool looking, advanced numbered page navigation to your blog.



So, how to add this to your Blogger blog ?
(first backup your blog template before editing anything)

1. Sign into your Blogger account » Settings » Formatting
Choose the number of posts you want to display on homepage

set the amount of posts to be displayed on the homepage
2. Go to Design » Edit html » tick the expand widget templates

Scroll down to the bottom of the template code and find this


</body>


PASTE this code above that line


<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType != "item"'>
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType != "static_page"'>
<script type='text/javascript'>
var pageCount=5;
var displayPageNum=5;
var upPageWord ='Previous';
var downPageWord ='Next';
</script>

<script type='text/javascript'>

In that above code, Edit the part that I highlighted in red color according to Step 1. It determines the number of posts that to be displayed per page. (Make sure, the number you set is same like the one in Step 1)


3. Control + F and search for all the occurrences of this code

'data:label.url'


and replace it with this


'data:label.url + &quot;?&amp;max-results=5&quot;'


Again, the number in the above line depends on the number you set in the STEP 1.

4. Now, the styling part.. I've made x styles.. you can choose the one you wish..


(i) Default



Code


.showpageArea a {
text-decoration:underline;
background: #ffffff;
padding: 10px 10px 10px 10px;

}
.showpageNum a {
text-decoration:none;
border: 1px solid #cccccc;
border-top: 1px solid #cccccc;
margin:0 3px;
padding:3px;
}
.showpageNum a:hover {
border: 1px solid #cccccc;
background-color:#cccccc;
}
.showpagePoint {
color:#333;
text-decoration:none;
border: 1px solid #cccccc;
background: #cccccc;
margin:0 3px;
padding:3px;
}
.showpageOf {
text-decoration:none;
padding:3px;
margin: 0 3px 0 0;
}
.showpage a {
text-decoration:none;
border: 1px solid #cccccc;
padding:3px;
}
.showpage a:hover {
text-decoration:none;
}
.showpageNum a:link,.showpage a:link {
text-decoration:none;
color:#333333;
}



Copy the above code. Find this line and paste that code ABOVE IT.
